ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) is set to launch a number of new scripted titles at MIPCOM 2014, led by US drama Aquarius, comedy Schitt’s Creek, period drama Poldark and Scandinavian mystery thriller Jordskott.
Maria Kyriacou, MD of ITV Studios Global Entertainment and ROW said, “Our MIPCOM 2014 scripted slate is truly international, coming from the territories associated with the best scripted content: major North American drama and comedy in Aquarius and Schitt’s Creek, prestigious British period drama in Poldark and Jordskott, a crime thriller from the region that does it best, Scandinavia. There’s something to appeal to everyone and we can’t wait to launch these titles at MIPCOM.”
Aquarius (Tomorrow Studios for NBC; 13 x 60’) stars two-time Golden Globe Award winner David Duchovny in his return to broadcast television. In this gripping event drama series set in the late 1960s, Duchovny stars as a Los Angeles police sergeant with a complicated personal life who starts tracking a small time criminal when he discovers that he is seeking out vulnerable women to join his “cause”. The name of that man is Charles Manson. The twists and turns of a complicated undercover operation draw Duchovny’s character and his young partner deeper into Manson’s sinister realm, trailing him on a path that will eventually lead to the Tate-LaBianca murders in subsequent seasons.
Schitt’s Creek (Not A Real Company Productions for CBC; 13 x 30’) – When filthy-rich video store magnate Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy), his soap star wife Moira (Catherine O’Hara), and their two kids – über-hipster son David (Daniel Levy) and socialite daughter Alexis (Annie Murphy) – suddenly find themselves broke, they are forced to live in a small, depressing town they once bought as a joke. With their pampered lives now abandoned, they must confront their newfound poverty and discover what it means to be a family, all within the rural city limits of Schitt’s Creek, their new home. Schitt’s Creek is a character-driven, half-hour single-camera comedy created by Eugene Levy and Daniel Levy.
