Looking back at the 2019 programme

Shaping Landscapes and Moving Mountains Welcome to TV Drama Vision 2019!

Redrawing the maps of the changing TV drama landscape and tracking the swift changes in the commissioners’ wish lists, is the main focus of this year’s TV Drama Vision. What stories and business models will shape the coming changes and cut through the noise to push the limits further?

What are the TV world’s disparate commissioners currently looking for? Which shows cut through the noise and impact audiences? How can creators build sustainable businesses while challenging themselves creatively? These are some of the challenges and questions. We are looking forward to two inspiring days with the talent and key executives who are creating today’s TV drama landscape. More than 60 guests will take the stage and close to 40 upcoming series will be presented making this the best networking opportunity in the region.
