Mip 2015: High-End Dramas Replace Reality TV

8 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the 1990s, after “Survivor,” “Pop Idol” and “Big Brother” galvanized Europe’s TV biz, the Next Big Thing was assumed to be a juggernaut reality format.

Now, for Europe, it’s the next high-end drama. All over Europe, as Cannes’ Mip TV market will underscore, pay TV operators (Canal Plus and Sky), broadcasters (Italy’s Mediaset, Spain’s Atresmedia), and some of its mightiest film-tv production companies (France’s Studiocanal, Germany’s Constantin) are either moving into English-language drama or amping up production.

Several market factors are at work. “There’s a highly competitive U.S. market for drama in premium and basic cable,” says Tim Westcott, analyst at Ihs Technology. “In international, premium pay TV operators are looking to invest in original series to protect their core business from Svod operators who are offering content more cheaply.”

The result: A near feeding frenzy for the production and acquisition of ambitious, »

29 March 2015 11:16 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Masi Oka's Hiro Nakamura will return for Heroes: Reborn

27 March 2015 5:14 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The Av Club reports that Masi Oka will reprise his fan-favourite role of Hiro Nakamura for this year's Heroes: Reborn. The time-travelling, teleporting geek Hiro played a key role throughout all four seasons of Heroes' original run from 2006 to 2010, so it's only fitting that he should return for the show's upcoming 13-episode limited-run series revival.

The dynamic between Hiro and his (mostly non-superpowered) best friend Ando Masahashi (James Kyson Lee) was hilarious, lending the show a much-needed humorous side to balance out the gripping arc-based storytelling drama. Not only that, but their friendship also provided some added emotional resonance. So hopefully James Kyson Lee will also return to complete the double act.

Hiro's relationships with some of the other characters also made for some brilliant storylines. For instance, there's his awkward, doomed romance with the adorable waitress Charlene 'Charlie' Andrews (Jayma Mays), continued in the amazing spin-off novel »
