Creative Europe Desk UK attends the Spotlight on British Series day in Paris
Last weekend, Creative Europe Desk UK attended the Spotlight on British Series day in Paris along with 250 other British and French professionals.
Organised by the MEDIA-funded Série Series, the event was hosted by British Ambassador Lord Ed Llewellyn at his Residence in Paris. The programme for the day included:
- a masterclass delivered by showrunner Jed Mercurio (whose recent credits include Bodyguard and Line of Duty)
- a roundtable on Franco-British collaborations
- a works-in-progress showcase for British series still in production
- a discussion on working methods, cultural differences and compatibility
- networking opportunities
This session is part of the off-site initiative, developed by Série Series since 2015 to strengthen bridges between two countries with regards to the creation and distribution of TV series.
