Washington the fox, Sam the wild boar and Eugenie, Sam’s little sister, are tired of living paw-to-mouth in the wilderness. They crave the creature comforts only the suburbs can provide and decide to zip into costume and disguise themselves as run-of-the-mill house pets. So far, their secret is safe but you can count on the gang’s wild animal instincts to surface at the very worst moments, driving the gags and suspense! They’ve tamed their new household, but they’re not out of the woods just yet!!

10:30    11:00 - Théâtre municipal One Vision: "Fuck the formula! Take creative risks again" by Walter Iuzzolino
Tuesday 26 June Théâtre municipal Discussions Professionals only

Europe has found success in the TV drama space because of its originality and ability to be distinctive and take risks. But the genre is now becoming a victim of its own success. European broadcasters, commissioners and producers need to find their guts again and rethink how they define and measure success if they want to remain relevant against the ever growing global SVOD players. How can they rejuvenate themselves? How to deal with the arrival of American giants on the market? How to define and measure success? Risk taking, creativity, audacity and singularity: during a One Vision session, Walter will lay out what, in his opinion, would allow European writers, broadcasters and producers to cultivate their uniqueness and create lasting success. 


Former Commissioning Editor at Channel 4 and Creative Director at Betty, Walter Iuzzolino launched the SVOD platform showcasing award winning foreign language drama Walter Presents in 2016 in the UK, and then in 2017 in the US and in Australia. He participated to the spreading of Heartless, Deutschalnd 83, Spin and Valkyrien and contributed to promote European series in the world, in particular in Anglo-Saxon countries.

One last chance. Once upon a time John Beckers was Flanders' favourite TV celebrity. In his heyday, he ruled the small screen and the audience absolutely adored him. His heavy addiction to drink and gambling led him down a dark path, however, causing John to lose almost everything he had worked so hard for. Popularity, friends and success disappeared faster than they had come.

#FollowUp: this series was presented by its creative team during Série Series 2017 during a "In the Pipeline" session.

Clash of Futures is a transnational and multi-perspective TV series on Europe’s journey through the 20th century– between peace and war, hope and hatred, democracy and totalitarianism. The series explores the dramatic years between 1918 and 1939. It follows the fates of 13 extraordinary men and women from France, Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Austria, Sweden, Poland and the Soviet Union as they make (and lose) their way in the exciting new world that emerged after the end of World War I. Through their dreams and fears, loves and decisions that they recorded in diaries and memoirs, these people bring to life the history of the 1920s and 30s in all its contradictions.

It's 1968 and the newly minted, politically aware reporter Karin tries to land her dream job at one of the big Stockholm newspapers, but has to content herself with a little summer substitute position at a sleepy backwater daily. Armed with her typewriter, she and her rebellious artist friend Lottie each rent a room in the home of the newspaper’s owner Georg. It doesn’t take many days before the peculiar pair have managed to stir things up in the little community where people have barely heard of the protests in Paris, much less the bra burning going on across the Atlantic!

In a time of reform for the French public television service, Série Series will take a detailed look into the British example.
The BBC is considered by many to be a European example. This is due to its strong identity, the quality of its programs and its efforts to stay innovative and current. A focus on the BBC ‘model’ will allow us to give the floor to various speakers. Four themes will be tackled:
Strategy, programming, production and talent training. These 4 elements will give us an overview of the BBC, its cultural, economical and social role, as well as its relationship with the public and creators. Amongst others are notable speakers Hilary Salmon, head of drama BBC Studios and Anne Edyvean, head of BBC Writersroom.

Marguerite Abouet was born in Abidjan. After a legal career, she decided to focus solely on writing and created Aya, a character through which she humorously tells the story of an Africa far from stereotypes, war and famine. The 6 volumes of Aya of Yop City, illustrated by Clément Oubrerie, were published by Gallimard from 2005 to 2010. The series tells the story of a group of teenagers in Yop City, Abidjan, near the end of the 70’s. She then decided to adapt it for the silver screen. The film, Aya of Yop City, co-directed by Clément Oubrerie, was presented as an official selection of the FIFF in 2013 and was nominated at the 2014 Césars. She also published the graphic novels Akissi (7 volumes), Commissaire Kouamé and Terre Gâtée. She created the TV series C’est la vie which has 2 seasons, the first of which has been broadcast on A+ and TV5 World/Africa, the RTI and several national African channels.
Marguerite was the patron of Série Series Ouagadougou. During a One Vision session, she will share her intense vision of the role of the writer, storyteller and creator, from Europe to Africa.

Opening ceremony, screening of an episode A Very English Scandal in presence of Stephen Frears (director), Dominic Treadwell-Collins (producer) and Murray Gold (composer)

 

A Very English Scandal is the shocking true story of the first British politician to stand trial for conspiracy to murder. It's the late 1960s, homosexuality has only just been decriminalized, and Jeremy Thorpe, the leader of the Liberal party and the youngest leader of any British political party in a hundred years, has a secret he's desperate to hide. As long as Norman Scott, his vociferous ex-lover is around, Thorpe's brilliant career is at risk, and eventually Thorpe can see only one way to silence Scott for good. The trial of Jeremy Thorpe changed politics forever as the British public discovered the darkest secrets of the Establishment and the lengths they’d go to conceal them.

Wednesday 27 June Théâtre municipal Discussions Professionals only

In a pivotal year for numerous public European channels, Série Series is joining forces with the EBU to discuss their distinctiveness in an ultra competitive landscape.
In a world governed by images, where communication plays a predominant role and where financial investments are on the rise, where do public broadcasters stand? what content, what stories can and should they tell? does drama have a cultural role? a responsibility? if so, what is it? what audience should it be aimed at?
Do public television services have the necessary weapons to continue to attract talent, to remain appealing to their public and to face the challenges of a globalised economy?
A debate that involves the broadcasters in question, but also creators, and will put the French frame of mind into perspective.

14:30    15:30 - Théâtre municipal Taking a step back: Social Class and Television Drama in Contemporary Britain, by Beth Johnson & David Forrest
Wednesday 27 June Théâtre municipal Discussions Professionals only

From the first ever sitcoms shot in studios to soap operas, historical dramas and animation. Beth Johnson and David Forrest, authors of Social class and TV drama in contemporary Britain, will analyse how the notion of class is inherent in British drama and is a common thread in different genres. How does British television drama today offer new perspectives for thought in contemporary societal debates around identity and class?

 

Dr Beth Johnson is Associate Professor of Film and Media at the University of Leeds, UK. She is the author of Paul Abbott (Manchester University Press, 2013) and has published widely on screen representations of gender and class. She is the editor of Television, Sex and Society (Continuum, 2012) and recently co-edited a dossier on ‘English Television Stardom and Performing the North’ (with David Forrest) for Journal of Popular Television (2017, 4:2). Again with Forrest, she co-edited the book collection Social Class and Television Drama in Contemporary Britain (Palgrave Macmillan, 2017). Her latest collection, Teenage Dreams: Youth Subcultures in Fiction, Film and Other Media (with Bentley and Zieleniec), was published in April 2018. Beth's research interests concern representations of gender, sex, class and place on film and television.


Dr David Forrest is Senior Lecturer in Film at the University of Sheffield, UK. His main research area is British social realist cinema, with a particular interest in the functions of space, place and landscape in realist texts. David has published work on British television drama, the British New Wave and contemporary British cinema. David's publications include the books Social Realism: Art, Nationhood and Politics (CSP, 2013); Filmurbia: Screening the Suburbs, (Palgrave Macmillan, 2017 (co-edited with Graeme Harper and Jonathan Rayner)); Social Class and Television Drama in Contemporary Britain (Palgrave Macmillan, 2017 (co-edited with Beth Johnson)); Barry Hines: ’Kes’, ‘Threads’ and Beyond (Manchester University Press, 2017 (co-written with Sue Vice)); and the forthcoming book New Realisms: Contemporary British Cinema (Edinburgh University Press, due 2019). David is a Co-Investigator on the AHRC project ‘Beyond the Multiplex: Audiences for Specialised Films in English Regions’, working alongside colleagues from the universities of Liverpool, Newcastle and York.

Wednesday 27 June Cinéma Ermitage Screenings Open to the public

After seven years in a high security prison, David Collins’ conviction for the murder of his wife is overturned on a technicality, or as his lawyer suggests, “an appalling miscarriage of justice”. David can now start his life again, repair his relationships with family and friends, see his children, and finally mourn for his wife, Tara. Or, at least this is what he had hoped for. This is a tale of one man picking himself up and starting again, in the face of almost insurmountable odds, even as many in his community continue to assert that there is no smoke without fire and that he is responsible. It is about what it feels like to be labelled a monster when you know you have done nothing wrong, but also about how you can find love and inspiration in the most surprising places. And it is about finding the truth about this sinister crime, for which the real culprit may still be at large.

THE FAMILY is a returning series about the history of Ancient Rome. Authentic and based in fact, it starts with the story of Octavian, who broke the Roman Republic forever and founded a family dynasty that would last for a century. But our story will be told through the eyes of the women who history has proven wielded huge power behind the scenes.
The first season follows Octavian’s wife, Livia, perhaps the greatest and most dangerous of them all. She must ensure her husband’s dynasty lives on after him, but quietly she is also determined that one of her own sons from a previous marriage -- Tiberius or Drusus - succeeds him as emperor of Rome. She will stop at nothing to achieve this.

Faced with the digital platforms run by the Internet giants, a new movement seems to be forming in Europe to try and change the game in terms of series. Many new initiatives are flourishing in order to build a Europe of Series: developing European co-productions, combining public broadcasters, new backing for series writing and creation, strengthening of fiscal measures.
In this new landscape, many questions arise: how do we encourage collaboration between European writers? how do we take into account linguistic diversity? how do we get French series seen around Europe? what tax policies and support mechanisms can be put in place to support French and European series? how far do we go in the construction of alliances in between European broadcasters? …

“ As has become a tradition at Série Series, a Tv series theme music concert will be held. This year, after training with symphonies, welcoming John Lunn last year and interpreting cult series music, I have decided to bring together artists who have marked me along my career as a composer.

Doo, singer, writer and composer, for her electro-rock addiction/influence, her poetic lyrics and her remarkable vocal tone (espeically on the song from Moufadi Tlatli’s film Nadia et Sarra).
Mouli, singer, writer and composer, for his very ‘sixties’ interpretation of the song from Thierry Lassalle’s play “Un bébé pour deux”.

Marie de Lerena, singer, writer and composer, for her unique tone, notably in our collaboration on Marion Sarraut’s film “La sainte famille”.
Julien Joly, instrumental composer, for his incredible synthesisers and his top class drumming.
Brice Delage, composer-guitarist, for his virtuosity along with his exceptional live performance.
Emma Piettre, cellist/arranger, who is part of the “Les Parisiennes” quartet.
Yann Dupuis, sound engineer. Touring the whole world, he does sound for Timber Timbre, Black Emperor, Andy Shauf, Lou Doillon, Yann Tiersen….
On the 27th June, these 6 will take to the Fontainebleau Theatre stage for a concert conceived as a musical interlude around current and iconic series themes such as Broadchurch, Les Revenants, Real Humans, Twin Peaks….”

Martel is a dangerous man. Despite working a nine to five without grumbling, taking care of his mother and selflessly helping his friends he is a dangerous man. The day he loses his job and ends up alone facing his debts, anything is possible. “Aux animaux la guerre” is the story of a man who refuses to go under and a work inspector who specialises in lost causes. It’s also the story of Bruce, a body builder who thinks he’s Tony Montana, Tokarev, a pimp undergoing chemotherapy and Jordan, a teenage biker who would do anything for his beloved Lydie. Lastly, it’s the story of a handful of workers who refuse to die and want to save their factory.
“Aux animaux la guerre” tells the tale of a world ending in the heart of provincial France, where social violence becomes physical.

Thursday 28 June Cinéma Ermitage Screenings Open to the public

ANGELO RULES follows 11 year old Angelo, a sweet-talking genius with a knack for getting out of trouble. From elaborate plans to comic strategies, the main weapons in Angelo’s arsenal are clever planning, irreverent attitude, a rebellious nature, optimism, and, most of all, charisma to make things go his way. The bigger the challenge, the bigger the plan. Angelo without a plan? Unthinkable! Combine those traits with his two best friends, Sherwood, the king of logistics and Lola whose own enthusiasm can even eclipse Angelo’s, and you’ve got a winning trio. With a knowing smile and an arched eyebrow, Angelo can give you the lowdown on how to get exactly what you want. If you know what’s good for you, you better listen closely…
