MUMBAI: MIPTV has announced this year’s official selection for the second edition of MIPDrama Screenings, which offer the international drama community, including 450 top buyers, an exclusive look at some of the most exciting upcoming series on the global marketplace.

The 2017 MIPDrama Screenings will be held on 2 April (Sunday) in the Grand Auditorium of the Palais des Festivals, Cannes, on the eve of the MIPTV global entertainment content market, which runs 3-6 April.

Designed to meet the growing international demand for high-end drama series from Europe and other major drama-producing territories, MIPDrama Screenings is a premium showcase curated by the MIP Drama Buyers Advisory Board. The 2017 MIPDrama Screenings now include two categories: ‘Works in Progress’ and ‘Full Episodes.’

The selected new drama series will be presented at MIPTV in front of an invited audience of leading acquisition executives and media from around the world. This year, the event is also open to producers, distributors, agents and other executives.

A total of six awards will be presented at the Closing Ceremony. Two awards (one in each category) will be selected by a stellar international Jury of writers, directors and executive producers. The members of the prestigious Grand Jury are: Frank Spotnitz, Executive Producer and Writer, (“The X-Files,” “The Man in the High Castle”), Lars Blomgren, Chairman, Scripted Exchange, Endemol Shine Group, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Filmlance International, and Executive Producer (“The Bridge,” “Beck,” “Spring Tide”), Virginie Brac, Screen Writer (“Cannabis,” “Paris,” “Engrenages”), Ran Tellem , Head of International Content Development for Mediapro and former Head of Content for Keshet, Executive Producer (“Homeland”) and Jalil Lespert, Director and Actor, (“Iris,” “Yves Saint Laurent,” “Versailles”).

Two awards (one in each category) will be chosen by the TV Critics Jury, whose members are: Maureen Ryan, Chief Television Critic, Variety (USA); Benji Wilson, TV Critic for the Telegraph (UK); and Constance Jamet, Critic for Le Figaro (France). Acquisition executives in attendance can also vote for their favourite projects in each category.

“The MIPDrama Screenings showcase is back with an impressive line-up of drama series that once again illustrates the diversity and quality of global output in the field. In the lead up to MIPTV, this will give buyers exclusive insight into the best new series being launched at the market,” said Laurine Garaude, Director of the Television Division at Reed MIDEM, which organises MIPTV.
