Cannes — Graced by enticing pre-l.A. screenings of Disney and Lionsgate shows and large excitement at sneak-peaked scenes from Adam Price’s “Ride Upon the Storm” and Tom Tykwer’s “Babylon Berlin,” 2017’s MipTV trade fair underscored why Hollywood still dominates much of global TV, as well as the new raised bar of ambition of European dramas.
Amazon’s Roy Price laid out plans for Amazon to drive into more originals, though he did not go into specifics. Both Amazon and Netflix took meetings with key content suppliers at MipTV.

By now, you’ve no doubt seen Funko Pop! Vinyls at retailers – most likely Hot Topic, where they dominate a good chunk of floor or wall space – and possibly own one yourself, or at least know somebody who can’t get enough of the cutesy interpretations of pop culture characters.
This May, thanks to publisher Idw, Funko are set to take the leap into comics as part of “Funko Universe Month.” At first, I was wondering if they’d have to create original characters before getting the full details that came with the announcement, but luckily, they’re taking full advantage of some of the many popular franchises Idw has license to.
As for which properties will get the treatment, readers can look forward to five one-shots that will give some of their favorite characters the small body, big head makeover: Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The X-Files, Strawberry Shortcake and Judge Dredd. »
