MIPCOM Spotlight: Lionsgate


The supernatural spy thriller The Rook, about a woman who wakes up in London with no memory of who she is and no way to explain the circle of dead bodies around her, makes its debut at MIPCOM with Lionsgate.

Also launching at the market is The Spanish Princess, a new story in the dynastic saga of Tudor England drawn from the best-selling novels by Philippa Gregory. It is a “powerful, epic story that not only returns the audience to the world of royal-court intrigue as seen uniquely through the perspective of the women, but also sheds light on a previously untold corner of history: the lives of people of color living and working in 16th-century London,” says Peter Iacono, the president of international television and digital distribution at Lionsgate. The comedy BoJack Horseman rounds out the slate.

“These exciting shows will resonate with global audiences as they marry great stories with impressive creative teams and brilliant, well-known talent,” Iacono says.
