TWC Closes Deal for U.S. Rights to Italy’s ‘Gomorrah’ Skein

7 April 2014 1:52 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rome — The Weinstein Company has closed a deal with Beta Film to acquire U.S. rights to “Gomorrah,” the hot Italo TV series that depicts the real Neapolitan mob with a degree of authenticity never seen before.

The deal marks the first time an Italian TV skein gets potential access to millions of U.S. TV homes. Though it is not known yet what U.S. outlet will carry the show, Netflix, with which TWC has a multiyear pact, seems like a good fit.

Shot in Naples and its crime-ridden environs, “Gomorrah” is a TV spinoff of the gritty eponymous Matteo Garrone movie that was based on Roberto Saviano’s bestselling investigative tome.

The first series of the skein, consisting of 12 one-hour episodes, is co-produced by Rupert Murdoch’s Sky Italia paybox with Rome’s Cattleya, Domenico Procacci’s Fandango – which produced the film – Italo free TV La 7 and Germany’s Beta Film. »

Exclusive: Marguerite Buy, John Turturro and Nanni Moretti lead cast in film currently shooting in Rome.

Films Distribution has acquired worldwide rights to Nanni Moretti’s upcoming dramedy Mia Madre about a film director juggling her contrasting public and private lives.

Marguerite Buy, John Turturro and Nanni Moretti lead the cast in the film, which is currently shooting in Rome.

Buy plays a successful film director whose powerful on-set persona is at odds with her private self.

On set, Buy’s character takes command. Back home, she is at the mercy of her ailing mother and taciturn adolescent son.

John Turturro plays an American actor in a film she is shooting. Moretti is also in the cast in the role of the filmmaker’s brother.

“Moretti never under estimates the audience’s intelligence. The characters are as smart as you want them to be, or as they should be,” said Films Distribution co-chief Nicolas Brigaud-Robert.

“It’s a dramedy »
