MIPCOM Spotlight: Entertainment One

Kristin Kreuk stars in the serialized drama Burden of Truth, on offer from Entertainment One.

The show is “in the same vein as Erin Brockovich, in that it’s big corporation against community,” says Stuart Baxter, the president of Entertainment One (eOne) Television International. The Detail is a more classic precinct procedural, led by two females, “that is nostalgic with tones of Hill Street Blues and Cagney & Lacey,” Baxter says.

Caught, meanwhile, is a high-stakes series that follows an escaped prisoner. “It’s riveting with betrayal, complex characters and an exciting twist you won’t see coming,” he notes.

MIPCOM marks eOne’s first market since combining its film and TV sales units into one global team. “We’re looking forward to meeting with clients as we take on a more holistic approach to our content business,” says Baxter. “In the last 12 months, our business has doubled in size as we’ve continued to grow and invest in creative partnerships.”
