Israel’s Yes Studios has been back in production for several months, with the third season of Netflix drama Shtisel and new period series The Beauty Queen of Israel both among the titles filming. Danna Stern, MD of the producer-distributor spoke with Michael Pickard about how the coronavirus pandemic has affected the business, the challenge of getting back to work without insurance and why there are more questions than answers facing the industry moving forwards.

UK broadcaster ITV recently aired a series of short films commissioned in response to rising racial tensions in the US and around the world. Four-part anthology series Unsaid Stories came from independent producer Greenacre Films and starred, among others, Nicholas Pinnock, Joe Cole and Yasmin Monet Prince. Greenacre co-founders and exec producers Nadine Marsh-Edwards and Amanda Jenks spoke with Inigo Alexander ahead of transmission about the show, which is still available via the ITV Hub on-demand service.

US industry veteran Gene George established and led the worldwide distribution arm at Starz for almost a decade, continuing with the business after its merger with Lionsgate. Last year, however, he launched his own firm, Tesera Entertainment, with a focus on distributing TV movies and series. He spoke with Karolina Kaminska about strategy and how he hopes to expand the business.
