Cannes – Transatlantic marriages between talent and biz partners were lauded at the presentations of major drama series at content mart MipTV Monday.
U.S. showrunner Ed Bernero (“Criminal Minds”) presenting crime series “Crossing Lines,” and stressed that he was keen to include thesps from several territories, including William Fichtner (“Prison Break”) and Tom Wlaschiha (“Game of Thrones”), as the series follows a pan-European detective agency – modelled on the FBI — so the multinational cast was integral to the show.
He added that the issue of having actors with a range of foreign accents wasn’t an issue for NBC, which has U.S. rights.
“It is going to be part of what they sell as the show. The notion that Americans don’t like accents is getting less and less all the time. People are pretty used to international productions,” Bernero said.
The skein is a multi-national creation, as it was »
