Conecta FICTION’s Pitch Copro Series, the special event that highlights international co-production projects of TV series or mini-series, received this year 117 projects from 13 different countries.
This year Mondo TV Iberoamerica, along with co-producers VIP 2000 TV and major Brazilian production and post-production company Casablanca, it has been selected among the finalists at Pitch Copro for the groundbreaking adult sci-fi/drama series 2050.2050
will be presented on Tuesday 18th of June during the pitching session in front of many leading delegates at the event from America and Europe – including producers, TV channels and potential partners and investors. And TVE – Spain’s national state-owned public-service television broadcaster – will fund the development of at least one of the selected scripted projects.
Maria Bonaria Fois, CEO at Mondo TV Iberoamerica, stated: “Mondo TV Iberoamerica is continuing to diversify its offer while still focusing on innovative ideas. We are thrilled to be partnering with VIP 2000 TV and Casablanca for the series 2050, a show that we believe will soon conquer audiences around the world. Being selected by the editorial committee at Conecta Fiction is an honour and a great opportunity for this innovative and highly original project.”
Roxana Rotundo, CEO of VIP 2000 TV, added: “In a fast-changing industry, our company cannot sit still. Creating original content that can differentiate our offering is essential – and 2050 does exactly that. 2050 is a perfect mix of drama, thriller and science fiction that we believe will bring audiences of all ages together. To be chosen among so many important projects at Conecta Fiction is a great vote of confidence in a project that is both innovative and exciting. I believe that, with both Casablanca and Mondo TV Iberoamerica alongside us, we have the ideal partners for this brilliant concept to make it an international success.”
