Totally Serialized

Creative Europe Desk UK at Totally Serialized – Season 4

Creative Europe Desk UK is teaming up with the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) to offer a dedicated industry programme as part of the 4th edition of Totally Serialized, the unique London festival dedicated to TV series.

Taking place on 29-30 January 2015 at the French Institute in London, the industry programme aims to nurture international exchanges and co-productions in order to meet the growing demand for high-quality European TV drama. Various aspects of the constantly-evolving field of TV series, including producing, screenwriting and financing, will be covered.

The last few years of production have proven that TV series are more successful than ever. More recently, the British TV industry has broken down frontiers with international buyers moving away from a remake-centred strategy to broadcasting the original series with subtitles. French shows such as The Returned, Braquo, Spiral, Hard and Maison Close from French channel CANAL+ have benefited from this shift and have proven to be a success on Channel 4, FX, BBC Four and Sky Arts respectively. Just recently, Channel 4 acquired Witnesses. One of the aims of this festival is to encourage this trend.

Promoting and improving collaboration between the United Kingdom and France, the festival will showcase the best of new productions from both sides of the Channel. Audiences will get a chance to attend exceptional preview screenings and meet creators and actors of cult TV series.

This year the festival is also launching a speed-dating meeting between selected French and UK producers, organised with Creative Europe Desk France and Creative Europe Desk UK.
