DRG takes Scandi drama to Mipcom

UK distributor DRG has revealed its Mipcom slate, headed by a pair of Scandi dramas including NRK’s six-parter on the Anders Breivik massacre.

My Grandparents War – Carey Mulligan

22 July (6×60’) from NRK follows the aftermath of the mass shooting committed by Anders Breivik in Oslo on that date in 2011. It is joined on the slate by For Life (8×60’), an episodic crime series produced by Monster following its main protagonist across two timelines.

DRG will also bring returning series Doc Martin to Mipcom. Produced by Buffalo Pictures for ITV and starring Martin Clunes, Doc Martin returns for a ninth, eight-hour season.

The final drama DRG is bringing to Mip is The White Wall, which will be available for pre-sales in Cannes. The sci-fi series is created by Scandinavian writers and producers, including Aleksi Salmenperä (A Man’s Job), Roope Lehtinen and Mikko Pöllä (both Black Widows).

In comedy, the fifth season of Plebs (8×30’) by Rise Films for ITV2 is available and tells the story of three young and slightly idiotic boys trying to climb the social ladder in Ancient Rome.

DRG will also bring a factual slate led by Wild Pictures’ My Grandparents’ War (4×60’), a series that follows major Hollywood stars – Helena Bonham Carter, Kristin Scott Thomas, Mark Rylance and Carey Mulligan – on personal journeys around the world as they retrace the footsteps of their grandparents during World War Two.

Killing Michael Jackson (1×60’) from Zig Zag Productions talks exclusively to the lead detectives who worked on the investigation into the star’s death, and shows how they brought Dr Conrad Murray to justice for his death.

History titles include The Last Journey of the Vikings (4×60’), a docu-drama from Mopar Studios that tells the story of how the Vikings transformed Europe, and Titans of the 20th Century (6×60’), a biographic series from WildBear Entertainment that explores the lives of those influential people that both caused and prevented trouble during the turbulent 1918-49 period.
