Beyond the occasional title, such as Belgium’s “The Twelve” which Federation Entertainment brought onto the market at Mipcom, the Canneseries competition looks to have a strong line in comedy, and also be, as artist director Albin Lewi put it – presenting 2019’s Canneseries

“All the world will be your enemy,” one rabbit warns in the first trailer released Tuesday. “And when they catch you, they will kill you — but first, they must catch you.”
“This isn’t about cute rabbits,” Boyega, who voices Bigwig, warned on Instagram last week.
Arnold Bristow, played by Roy Kinnear, who was reaching the twilight years of an acting career spanning three decades, believed that he had psychic powers and could provide his family and friends with clairvoyant readings, which is a skill that allows individuals to visualise images or pictures in their mind’s eye and is an additional sensory awareness to the five traditional senses of smell, touch, sight, sound and taste. There are many clairvoyants in the off-screen world
His family has confirmed to multiple media outlets that Lewis passed away on Wednesday (August 12) at a nursing home in East London.
Lewis's niece Rebecca told the press that the actor remained in "high spirits" in his last days, adding: "He was always singing and joking."
Through more 50 years in front of the camera, Lewis was best known for portraying Cyril 'Blakey' Blake in the ITV comedy On the Buses and its three spinoff films.
Lewis would later become a regular presence on UK television on The Generation Game, Oh, Doctor Beeching! and more recently Last of the Summer Wine from the 1970s through to the 2000s.
The London-born actor was also an accomplished screenwriter, having penned the Barbara Windsor and Roy Kinnear-starring 1963 film Sparrers Can't Sing.

Michael Armstrong, the writer and star of Eskimo Nell,once said, "It's hard to wank and laugh at the same time". In the 1970s filmmakers gave it a very good try however, and the British sex comedy was virtually the only kind of film being funded. The problem is that the majority of them were neither funny or sexy. They were generally grubby and embarrassing for the actors and the audience. One of the pioneers of the British sex film was director and producer Stanley Long, responsible for The Wife Swappers (1969) and Adventures of a Taxi Driver (1975) and many others. An occasional cinematographer on prestigious films like Roman Polanski's Repulsion (1965), Long often recognised and nurtured new talent, particularly if he could see a financial reward.
Michael Armstrong had written The Sex Thief for Martin Campbell (1975), a film that Stanley Long admired,
The mining of television properties of yesterday continues. We've got a new Danger Mouse coming, a film of Bananaman. And now? The fickle finger of reboot fate has landed at the door of SuperTed.
Remember SuperTed? Accompanied by his faithful sidekick Spotty, he did battle against Texas Pete with the help of a 'flamboyant' skeleton, accompanied by a theme tune that scores 6/10 on our vintage children's TV theme tune rating system of doom.
It also featured a character who carried a bit of extra timber, helpfully entitled Bulk. And one of the girls was called Blotch. These edges of the show that you wouldn't describe as 'politically correct' are unlikely to make it to the new version.
As creator Mike Young told the Radio Times, "in SuperTed we had a gun-slinging cowboy, a
I do wonder sometimes whether the fanboys realise what an important, highly influential and iconoclastic director they’re dismissing when they’re kicking sand into Lester’s face. Martin Scorsese would certainly correct them (sternly,
Digital Spy got on the phone to Jason for a frank chat about The Musketeers, why he's a lucky charm for Doctor Who actors and why he won't talk about Star Wars.
The Musketeers was devised by Adrian Hodges, who you previously worked with on Primeval...
"Yeah, he's a lovely guy - we've always got on really well. When I left Primeval, it was my choice - the contract came up [so I left, but] I went back and did one episode to get me out of the show.
"It was something that I was proud of but I missed doing my movies. I think that's really where my heart lies - not jobs that go on for years and years. I'm too nomadic to do that.
And they all lived happily ever after. Well, not all happily. Nor, actually, did they all live, let alone ever after. But anyway, several stories came to an end.
Top of the Lake (BBC2, Saturday) suddenly realised it had a date to keep with its own conclusion and picked up momentum. Tui gives birth – in the woods, naturally, alone, the right way – to a son (and not, thankfully, a half-brother too; well, I don't think so).
The deep, icy lake gives birth too. After a difficult but beautiful five-hour labour (push!), its secrets emerge, gasping and screaming, at the surface. Secrets from the past and the present about abuse and cruelty and rape.
Robin's own secret – she gains a father no one would want as a father,
Directed by Richard Lester, who also directed the band’s debut feature film, 1964’s A Hard Day’s Night, Help! follows The Beatles as they become passive recipients of an outside plot that revolves around Ringo’s possession of a sacrificial ring, which he cannot remove from his finger. As a result, he and his bandmates John, Paul and George are chased from London to the Austrian Alps and the Bahamas by religious cult members, a mad scientist and the London police.
