TV DRAMA & INTERNATIONAL CO-PRODUCTION CASE STUDY: HIDDEN ASSETS

Thu 07 July / Galmont Hotel – Veranda Lounge / 11:00 – 12:00

Much TV drama these days is being financed like a feature film. It involves producer led co-production structures and multiple financing partners – even Eurimages is now contemplating a fund for TV drama. We look closely at how such a TV drama was financed from multiple sources and structured as a co-production with the producer at the centre.

Panel:

  • Peter McKenna (Screenwriter, Hidden Assets)
  • Andrew Byrne (Screen Ireland)
  • Siobhán Bourke (Saffron Pictures)

Moderator: Sheila de Courcy
