ITV Studios Global Entertainment brings the UK’s most successful presenters Ant and Dec to Cannes and unveils rich and diverse MIPCOM 2019 slate

Brand-Defining Drama For All Demos, Breath-Taking Blue Chip Factual and Uniquely Fun and Fast Formats

30 September, 2019 – ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) today announces it will bring the UK’s most successful TV presenters, Ant and Dec, to Cannes to share the story of their 29 years in the entertainment industry and, alongside the show’s popular host Stephen Mulhern, present the buzzy street-based gameshow In For A Penny to MIPCOM buyers. They will also discuss their dual roles as on-screen talent and creators in the panel BIG TALENT, BIGGER IDEAS with Angela Jain, MD ITV Studios Entertainment and Stephen Mulhern at 2.30 PM on Tuesday 15th October at Esterel level 5, Palais Des Festivals.

ITVS GE also unveils its MIPCOM 2019 slate which spans heart-racing UK and international drama to attention-grabbing non-scripted, and uniquely different formats - bursting with titles that are set to be the most moving, gripping and talked about TV around the world.

DRAMA

The much-anticipated Noughts + Crosses, based on the award-winning young adult novel series by Malorie Blackman, headlines the drama slate. A provocative tale of first love set in a dangerous alternate society, it is a powerful story that shines a light on societal issues of race, prejudice and identity. In contrast, the contemporary family drama Flesh and Blood weaves the complex, yet relatable, relationship dynamics of three adult siblings into a thrilling investigation and Sticks and Stones (formerly named The Man) explores the corrosive effects of workplace bullying.

As the leading international producers in the ITV Studios family deliver more new European titles, ITVS GE launches the award-winning Une Belle Histoire – the French adaptation of Big Talk and ITV’s global hit Cold Feet, alongside Masantonio and Petra two intriguing Italian procedural crime dramas. Also new is the hit revival of the iconic 90s series Seachange, which has become Australia’s number one drama of 2019.

A host of fresh character-driven comedies and comedy dramas also make their debut, including Glass Houses, a humorous yet cautionary tale about the perils of idle gossip, and Zomboat a gorily funny and unique take on the zombie apocalypse. Edgy, authentic and laugh-out-loud comedy Brassic returns with a second season commission, as does the sixth and final season of the universally-adored 2019 Emmy®-nominated Schitt’s Creek.

NON-SCRIPTED

From nature to human nature, family life to true crime, the ITVS GE non-scripted slate has the real world covered.

Signalling the company’s invigorated commitment to wildlife programming India’s Wild Karnataka. The exquisite one-hour special is narrated by Sir David Attenborough who describes it as sending “a message of hope, not just across India but across the whole world”. Another title fronted by a world-renowned star, Judi Dench’s Wild Borneo Adventure allows us a sneak peek into the celebrated actress’ lifelong passion for nature, and as the world’s media turns its attention to Tokyo for next year’s Olympics, the beautifully shot Wild Tokyo explores the vast array of wildlife that thrives alongside the city’s human residents. Meanwhile, Anatomy of a Wild Fire looks at how these increasingly frequent raging infernos begin and what those on the frontline of the fight can do to stop them.

Closer to home, The Arrival takes an up-close and personal look at one of the most intense and life-changing events for any family – the arrival of a new baby; and named after the radio call sign issued by officers who need urgent assistance, Police Code Zero: Officer Under Attack exposes, examines and empathises with the wide range of dangerous situations that police forces face every day; and Belmarsh Prison sees Ross Kemp enter HMP Belmarsh, the UK’s most notorious Category A prison, for an unflinching look at life behind bars.

FORMATS

The global record-breaking and award-winning hit Love Island, which has now been commissioned in 13 territories, once again heads a slate of new and successful returning formats, including Catchpoint, the physical gameshow which has been recommissioned by BBC One and has successfully launched in Hungary; and In For A Penny, the Saturday Night Takeaway feature now a fully-fledged show in its own right, which is returning to ITV for a second series.

Among the new formats being launched are Comedians Giving Lectures, a unique comedy format which guarantees brand new hilarious content every week as three comedians give their own take on an academic lecture, Old Wife, New Wife which examines what happens when an ex-wife moves in with newly-weds to try and resolve old issues, and The Switch a brand new fast, funny and play-along quiz show in which it’s easy to win cash but harder to keep it – and the opportunity to win is up for grabs until the very last question of every game.

Completing the new line-up are kids show Project Z, the part structured reality, part gameshow set in an imaginary world where Zombies roam the earth and Embarrassing Pets, which showcases a host of interesting owners and their cherished pets which all have something in common – embarrassing behavioural or health issues.

Ruth Berry, Managing Director of ITV Studios Global Entertainment, said “This year’s MIPCOM slate is everything you’d expect from ITVS GE and more. From young adult drama, to breath-taking nature programming and fun and fast formats, this is our richest and most diverse slate to date. We recognise that today’s audiences want us to challenge their perspectives by providing programming that is creative, memorable and thought-provoking and our new titles have these qualities in abundance. If you want conversation-starting content with the potential to grip the nation – look no further.”

DRAMA:

Noughts + Crosses

Adapted from the first book in Malorie Blackman’s bestselling series, the much-anticipated Noughts + Crosses is a gripping story of first love set in a dangerous, alternate world where racism divides society. Separated by their colour but united by forbidden love and burning injustice, Sephy Hadley (Masali Baduza) and Callum McGregor (Jack Rowan) are fighting for more than simply the right to be together. Sephy is a ‘Cross’, a member of the black ruling class and daughter of a prominent politician. Callum is a ‘Nought’, a white member of the underclass. The two have been friends since childhood, but, under the strict laws of this dystopian state, that’s as far as it can go. Their relationship grows ever more complicated as they come of age and against a backdrop of prejudice, distrust and rebellion, the passionate romance that builds between them will lead them both into terrible danger. An iconic love story of two families separated by power and prejudice but forever entwined by fate, Noughts + Crosses features an exceptional cast including Paterson Joseph, Bonnie Mbuli, Kike Brimah, Helen Baxendale, Ian Hart, Josh Dylan and Shaun Dingwall. Filmed in South Africa and produced by Mammoth Screen, the six-part drama is written by BAFTA® nominee Toby Whithouse, Lydia Adetunji, Nathaniel Price and Rachel De-Lahay.

Flesh and Blood

Original thriller Flesh and Blood is a modern story of three adult siblings, exploring universal themes of relationships, trust, loyalty and love against the backdrop of the build-up to, and aftermath of, a tragic crime. The already dysfunctional lives of Helen, Jake and Natalie are thrown into disarray when their recently widowed mother Vivien declares she’s in love with a new man. Their suspicions are heightened as retired surgeon Mark sweeps their mother off her feet, shifting her priorities away from her children. Years of secrets, lies, rivalries and betrayals come to the surface and threaten to blow apart everything they’ve held dear. And through it all, Vivien’s overly attentive neighbour Mary quietly watches on, unhealthily attached to them all. With their large family home, inheritance and happy childhood memories all at risk, the siblings attempt to find out more about Mark. But will their long-buried grudges, complex relationships and complicated personal lives allow them to pull together? After all, our brothers and sisters can be our closest allies or our sworn enemies - often in the space of a heartbeat. And how will Mary play into this fractious situation, with her ongoing attempts to subtly involve herself in Vivien’s life? Weaving together a truthful family drama and a compelling investigation that doesn’t reveal the victim until the very end, Flesh and Blood proves that we can never really know what’s going on behind closed doors.

Sticks and Stones

Mike Bartlett, creator of Doctor Foster and Trauma, explores the corrosive effects of workplace bullying in this taut three-part psychological thriller starring Ken Nwosu. Set amid the competitive world of sales, the drama centres on the personal and professional life of Thomas Benson (Nwosu), a hard-working father and husband. Reliant on bonuses and winning pitches, Thomas often finds himself leading the team when trying to secure new business. However, when he freezes during a pitch, the fall out is monumental. Determined to prove himself, Thomas goes to increasingly desperate lengths to remain successful. But, as he does, he begins to feel undermined, under attack and out of control. Has he lost his confidence and is just being paranoid or is his own team, and maybe the wider world, now out to get him? Blending dark humour with intense drama, Sticks & Stones is a timely and globally relevant exploration of the potential cruelty of commercial competition and its impact on our psychology and humanity. Directed by Julia Ford and produced by Colin Wratten, this contemporary workplace drama also stars BAFTA®-winner Ben Miller, Sean Sagar, Susannah Fielding, Ritu Arya and Alexandra Roach.

Masantonio

From the producers of Gomorrah, this intriguing procedural crime drama digs deep into the heart of missing persons investigations – uncovering the human story within. Every year, 25,000 people in Italy vanish into thin air. In Masantonio, Genoa’s response to the crisis is to establish an office, hidden in an old museum, tasked with finding these people. Elio Masantonio, a lone wolf with a complex personality, seems to be the worst possible candidate to lead this office. But Masantonio has an extraordinary ability to get inside the lives – and heads – of the disappeared. His superiors can see his potential – particularly when partnered with Riva, a profoundly honest, open and patient cop who is Masantonio’s exact opposite. With Riva, who will quickly become his guardian angel, by his side, Masantonio will need to draw on all his skills to piece together these intricate, puzzling cases while also adding pieces to the puzzle that is his own life.

Petra

Character-driven procedural crime drama Petra brings to life the iconic and unconventional detective from Alicia Giménez-Bartlett’s bestselling novels. A twice-divorced sleuth working a tiresome desk job for Genoa’s criminal investigation squad, Petra is suddenly thrust onto the front line, tasked with solving violent crimes. Her new partner is Antonio Monte – an old-school policeman, close to retirement, with years of experience, wisdom and insight. The two couldn’t be more different – ingenious and complex, Petra is a symbol of contemporary women, while Antonio clings to the traditional roles of men and women. However, despite this ongoing battle of the sexes, their shared determination to uncover the truth leads to a surprisingly successful partnership. As they grapple with the stark realities of Genoa’s squalid and violent criminal underworld, Petra and Antonio will also engage in a higher-level investigation, exploring the meaning of life, the possibility of happiness and the fragility of the human condition.

Glass Houses

Created and written by Mark Brotherhood and starring Dawn French, new comedy drama Glass Houses delves into what happens when idle gossip escalates out of control and starts to affect people’s lives. Set in a picturesque fishing village, the series centres on Maggie Cole (French), the self-appointed oracle of this close-knit community. Maggie makes it her business to know a little bit about everyone’s lives. She certainly doesn’t pay attention to the cautionary adage that ‘those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones’. When a radio journalist interviews Maggie for a small reportage piece about local life, she gives him far more detail – and embellishment – about the locals and their personal lives than he was counting on. In the days and weeks following the show’s broadcast, Maggie’s over- zealous chit-chat gets her into serious hot water, as the fallout from her very public gossip-fest disrupts the lives of her fellow residents. Packed full of comedy, intrigue and suspense, Glass Houses is a warmly humorous yet distinctly cautionary tale about the perils of passing on unfounded gossip. An ensemble cast of characters feature alongside Maggie, including Peter (Mark Heap), Maggie’s husband of 31 years and headmaster of the local school; Maggie’s best friend Jill (Julie Hesmondhalgh); school secretary Karen (Vicki Pepperdine); and handsome part-time resident Marcus (Patrick Robinson), who rents a cottage where he writes his bestselling novels.
