We also heard from Banijay Rights’ Caroline Torrance on how the distributor has weathered the pandemic with series from less affected territories; Guy Bisson of Ampere Analysis spoke of a US$160bn hit to the entertainment biz; and Gary R Benz outlined LA-based GRB Studios’ plans to resume production.

The C21FM Weekly Review Show also includes this week’s interviews with NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises’ Peter Blacker about how the US Hispanic network is adapting to the pandemic and contributing to new streamer Peacock; former Gaumont exec Vanessa Shapiro on launching Nicely Entertainment during a pandemic; and Anke Greifeneder of Germany’s TNT discusses a darkly comic drama commissioned under lockdown to support the local creative industries.

Rounding out this week’s C21FM interviews are Dave Clarke, exec VP of content at NENT Studios UK, about the recently rebranded distributor’s post-lockdown plans; S4C’s Elen Rhys and Boom Cymru series producer Catrin Honeybill, about their fast-turnaround special Lockdown Wedding; and Eli Lehrer, exec VP and head of programming at History, who spoke about the impact of lockdown on the A+E Networks-owned US cablenet and what he is looking to commission as restrictions ease.

All of this, together with a mix of music to keep you sane. Thanks for listening.
