German Broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 Casts Global Net for Scripted Fare

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

Before broadcasting giants even consider pitches, they tend to create hurdles for creative types to clear. But Germany’s ProSiebenSat.1 is taking the opposite approach, issuing an open invitation to writers and producers from around the world to submit proposals for series and miniseries for development.

It’s a first for the broadcaster, and the brainchild of Koby Gal-Raday, the senior VP of international co-production and documentaries, who was hired in 2014 to boost the company’s English-language and foreign productions. (The shingle he co-founded, July August Prods., was acquired in 2012 by ProSiebenSat.1’s Red Arrow production arm.) While the strategy is aimed at bringing new voices and fresh talent to the network, it also provides equal opportunity to international filmmakers, production companies and showrunners-in-the-making.

Gal-Raday, a former exec at Israel’s Reshet Broadcasting, says the idea for the open call stems from his successful experience working with global collaborators on theatrical co-productions. »

Producer and co-creator of Fox’s “24,” Cochran is attached to “Lionshearts,” which turns on the most famous crusade of all, the Third Crusade of 1191-92. English-language and almost certainly a big epic BBC primetime series,

“Lionhearts: The Crusade” looks a firm candidate for a U.S. deal of some sorts. As Tandem prexy Bauer pointed out last month, made over the last 15 years, »

It was a very good night for TV actors at the 2015 Academy Awards — with Patricia Arquette (Medium, CSI: Cyber), J.K. Simmons (Oz, The Closer, Law & Order) and even Julianne Moore (As the World Turns) and Eddie Redmayne (The Pillars of the Earth) snagging the four major acting prizes.
