This landmark new series about love, loss and defiance features an acclaimed international cast including Christopher Lambert (Ghost Rider 2, Highlander), John Corbett (Sex and the City, My Big Fat Greek Wedding), Rutger Hauer (Batman Begins, Blade Runner), Gérard Depardieu (Life of Pi, La Vie en Rose) and French actress Vahina Giocante (99 Francs, The Libertine) as Mata Hari. Drama. Episodes/length: 12x60 mins. Directed by Dennis Berry, Julius Berg; produced by Star Media in partnership with Channel One Russia and Inter Ukraine

Man v. Viral

Man v. Viral is part raucous clip show, part thrilling travelogue, that combines scientific and engineering detective work with the most spectacular stunts you will ever see. Each hour-long show sees our intrepid engineers take on 3 or 4 incredible web stunts being tested. They cross-examine the creators before drawing on engineering support and using real world locations to recreate the clips. If it is a hoax, they prove it once and for all – and then demonstrate how it could be done. Factual Entertainment. Episodes/length: 6x60 mins. Produced by Nerd TV for Chan- nel 4 UK and National Geographic Channels International.

Weather or Not

Weather or Not is the exhilarating documentary about the most notorious, terrifying and deadly natural weather disasters and people who lived through them. Combining dramatic footage and on-the-ground expert testimony with cutting-edge graphics, the series explains the science behind these fascinating yet monstrous phenomena, and allows viewers to get closer than ever before to the destructive chaos and human drama as it unfolds. Factual. Episodes/length: 52x30 mins. Produced by Bellum Entertainment

Outlook 

“Major trends include: Factual reality, with the whole space doing well - partly driven by our show Married at First Sight, with the U.S. version selling across the region. Game shows with a comedy spin are also in demand, demonstrated by formats such as My Man Can, which has been produced across the region, and new spin-off format My Man Can: Showdown. We are also experiencing a major growth area in the OTT space, with examples including the Japanese remake of The Last Cop, which premiered on Hulu Japan before running on Nippon TV.”
