MIPCOM Spotlight: Escapade Media

A law-abiding Australian discovers she’s living in New York illegally and must make a life for herself while trying to avoid being deported in the brand-new drama series Undocumented, from Escapade Media.

“The series explores the theme of privilege, the need for family versus the drive of ambition, and how Skype literally does allow you to attend births, deaths and marriages that are thousands of miles away—via a computer anyway,” says Natalie Lawley, the managing director of Escapade Media.

The company is also presenting The Art of Killing, which tells the story of a retired cop who sets out to avenge his son’s murder. Escapade holds Asian rights for Tomorrow When the War Began, which Lawley says addresses “some of the very real fears of the world we are facing today.”

She notes, “When Escapade formed, we wanted to work with partners and creative teams developing dramas with strong and diverse characters at their core.”
