The series selected for the second edition of the MIPDrama Screenings event were announced, and Globo’s previously unreleased Jailers is the only Latin American production among the 12 chosen for an exclusive showing at the event, to be held on April 2. Organized by MIPTV, one of the main television content markets, the MIPDrama Screenings show major new releases from networks and producers from around the world to an audience of licensing executives and journalists. Globo’s presence among the selected networks attests to the potential and relevance of the Brazilian company as a producer and distributor of multiplatform content on a global scale.
Some of the selection criteria of the MIPDrama Screenings include plot innovations, production quality and the narrative’s ability to make an impression on audiences in different countries. In addition, the series must be previously unreleased or have not been aired before January 2017. The series are evaluated by a jury composed of market executives and MIPTV organisers.
