BBC Worldwide Ups Stake in ‘Ripper Street’s’ Lookout Point to 49%

29 September 2016 5:08 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The BBC’s world sales arm, BBC Worldwide, has upped its stake in drama-show producer Lookout Point, whose credits include “War and Peace” and “Ripper Street,” to 49%. Bbcw has the option of taking full ownership of the company.

Bbcw and Lookout Point began their relationship in 2010 with a first-look distribution deal. This developed into a co-venture agreement for production financing and distribution, and Bbcw then took a 35% equity stake in Lookout Point in 2014.

The increased stake will “enable BBC Worldwide to support Lookout Point in its next phase of development, as Lookout Point expands to produce and launch a number of new high-profile productions, continuing its evolution from co-producer and arranger of finance to global producer,” Bbcw said in a statement.

Lookout Point’s chairman and joint CEO, Simon Vaughan, was joined by Faith Penhale as joint CEO earlier this year. Its 2016 productions include Mike Bartlett’s newspaper drama “Press,” co-produced »

26 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

IndieWire’s Springboard column profiles up-and-comers in the film industry worthy of your attention.

A working actress since the early ’70s, Kamala Lopez has appeared in films like “Born in East L.A.,” “I Heart Huckabees” and “Any Day Now,” as well as a lengthy list of televisions shows, from “Miami Vice” to “Walker, Texas Ranger” and “Resurrection Blvd.” Not content with the roles offered to actresses in Hollywood, Lopez began making her own films, and thereby her own opportunities.

The BBC and Weinstein TV announced that BAFTA-winning screenwriter Andrew Davies (War and Peace) has signed on to adapt Victor Hugo’s classic novel Les Miserables as a six-part drama.

Andrew Davies’ extraordinary skill for adaptation will bring the world famous Les Misérables into powerful focus for a modern audience with a multi-layered re-telling of Victor Hugo’s masterpiece”, adds Charlotte Moore, director of content at the BBC. “BBC One viewers can expect the same quality and scale from the team behind War and Peace in this epic tale of redemption and the healing power of love. »

Werner Herzog’s Way of Life: How He Makes a Living and Why He Teaches Filmmaking

15 July 2016 1:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Werner Herzog is not your average film school teacher. A self-taught director, his globe-trotting adventures and chaotic man-versus-nature dramas are not the easiest projects to transform into a curriculum, but that hasn’t stopped him from giving it a shot.

Whether it’s through his Rogue Film School or, most recently, as one of the A-list instructors featured on online learning empire MasterClass, Herzog has no interest in teaching the technical elements of moviemaking. The German-born filmmaker, whose career includes epics like “Fitzcarraldo” as well as idiosyncratic documentaries such as “Cave of Forgotten Dreams”  wants to create what he calls “soldiers of cinema,” and the path to victory can be stoking his students’ appetites for experiencing life.
