Ten projects have been chosen to participate in the Co-Pro Series at this year's Berlinale.

The Co-Pro Series is a specialised pitching and networking event organised by the Berlinale Co-Production Market, which received funding through Creative Europe's Access to Markets scheme. The event gives participants the opportunity to present their upcoming drama series to a host of industry people, including producers, commissioning editors and distributors with the goal of securing co-production and financing partners. 

The selected projects, which originate from eight different countries, includes one from the UK. Napoleon is created by Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris and produced by Satire Entertainment. The series will be directed by Agnieszka Holland, whose latest film Mr. Jones has also been selected to premiere in Berlinale's International Competition

The remaining nine projects are:

  • Davos (Switzerland)
  • A Family Matter (Finland)
  • Reindeer Mafia (Finland)
  • Trom (Denmark)
  • Clone (Norway)
  • Hacker (Norway)
  • Big Bones (Austria)
  • Flesh & Blood (Australia)
  • Immunity (Germany) - selected in cooperation with Series Mania. 

The Co-Production Market will run from 9 to 13 February, with the Co-Pro Series taking place on 12 and 13 February at Berlin's Zoo Palast cinema.
