TFP in London for major pitches

THE FORMAT PEOPLE IN LONDON FOR PITCHES TO MAJOR DISTRIBUTORS, PRODUCERS

London October 2109:

The Format People are in London this week to present a raft of new formats to distributors and producers in advance of MIPCOM next week.

Meetings have been arranged with NBCU, Warners Bros, Sony Entertainment and the Motion Content group among others.

CEO Michel Rodrigue said:

“We are pleased that our reputation and track record allows us to present our new formats to major players in the TV formats industry.  We are not only looking for partners to bring our creative output to the screen, but the right partners, with the global range and experience to deliver shows that will travel.”

CCO Justin Scroggie said:

“We have spent the last 12 months developing a raft of new formats, with particular attention to the studio game show genre, which our research shows is what many buyers are looking for – and not finding.  Game shows are some of the trickiest formats to create, as you start with no story, no characters, no plot.  You have to build a strong narrative to drive the action, emotional format beats that deliver drama, and an internal logic to the whole thing that satisfies viewers.  And that’s we can do.”
