MIPCOM Spotlight: AMC Studios


The drama Unspeakable, on offer from AMC Studios, is based on the real-life tainted-blood scandal that happened in the early 1980s.

In the docuseries space, Jonestown: Terror in the Jungle examines how Jim Jones transformed from a charismatic preacher and champion of civil rights into an egomaniacal demagogue who led a mass suicide. The series “will have viewers on the edge of their seats as it paints a picture of and attempts to answer the burning questions surrounding the grim massacre,” says Valerie Cabrera, the senior VP of international content distribution at AMC Studios.

Meanwhile, the dramedy This Close is about deaf best friends. “The chemistry between the cast and their performances will draw viewers in and make them want to follow along on their unique journey through life,” Cabrera says.
