This week we pitched Cognition – our crime thriller set between the US and the Far East and being made in partnership with John Woo’s newly-branded Los Angeles banner A Better Tomorrow Films – to a packed auditorium of 300 co-producers, distributors, and other potential investors as part of the EFM Drama Series Days, now in its third year and growing steadily.
As Variety announced “this year’s featured TV shows include neo-noir thriller Cognition, created by Alex Garcia Lopez, director of cult British TV dramas Utopia and Misfits” which took its place among a line of up 7 prestige shows currently in development that were selected from over 100 projects.
As outlined by Screen International – “It was obvious that producers, distributors and sales agents at the EFM were becoming more and more interested in TV drama.”
“Last year Susanne Bier’s John Le Carré thriller The Night Manager had its world premiere in Berlin and went on to become a major international hit.”
The Drama Series Days event at the EFM has been described as “a secret hotspot” of the market, with streaming giants Netflix and Amazon attending the event.
Safe to say, after Executive Producer Lori Tilkin (A Better Films Tomorrow) and our very own originating producer Charlotte Walls had descended from the stage, the series had already won over some exciting new fans.
For now, watch this space.
