Content Creators Get Ambitious in Peak TV, but Face Budget Challenges

Content Creators Get Ambitious in Peak TV, but Face Budget Challenges
How do producers, broadcasters, streaming platforms and distributors best take advantage of what is commonly agreed to be a time of peak content creation for television? That is a question the keynote speakers at the Variety European TV Summit will attempt to address when they gather for a one-day conference on June 13 at London’s Royal Lancaster Hotel in Bayswater.

Gareth Neame, the executive chairman of “Downton Abbey” and “The Last Kingdom” producer at Carnival Films, says that, thanks to new platforms and rising budgets, producers are freer than ever to create ambitious and novel-like dramas rather than the artificial, low-budget shows that used to characterize scripted TV.

“There are plenty more opportunities — but competition is massive. Everyone is in this space,” says Neame, referring to the growth in the number of production companies pushing into drama. He adds that rising budgets mean the “stakes are now very high” for drama producers,

Samuel L. Jackson Dared Tim Roth to Curse on Live TV When He Lost at the Oscars

Samuel L. Jackson Dared Tim Roth to Curse on Live TV When He Lost at the Oscars
Amidst chatter about that new Quentin Tarantino film arriving later this year, one of the director’s past and future collaborators took an opportunity to reflect on a missed opportunity. Tim Roth, perhaps best known for his appearances in Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction,” was nominated for an Oscar for his role in the 1995 adaptation of “Rob Roy.” On the most recent edition of “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” Roth explained that Samuel L. Jackson dared him to react a certain way if he didn’t end up winning.

“I’m sitting there and just before it comes up, Sam Jackson turns around at me and says, ‘Now, Tim. When you lose, say ‘Motherfucker!'” Roth said. With the camera still on all five nominees, viewers would be able to see him mouth the word.

“I missed that, and I always regretted that,” Roth added.

Palanquin Offers New Business Model for East-West Productions in SVoD Era
For Westerners making movies in Asia, logistics can be problematic. And, for Asian filmmakers able to navigate local conditions, screenwriting for international audiences and access to markets can still be stumbling blocks.

Veteran producer and executive Guy Louthan is now developing a business that straddles East and West, deploys American production standards and techniques, and maximizes Asian cultural impact. It also comes at a time when global interest in Indian and Southeast Asian content is growing thanks to the aggressive local production strategies of Amazon, Netflix and HBO.

The Palanquin company that Louthan formed with British director Roland Joffe aims to bridge the gap with a slate of its own movies, close connections to local production services firms and a possible film fund once the business model has proved itself. He aims to provide full financial transparency and Asian creative involvement while delivering films that are likely to combine local and foreign locations,
