MIPCOM Spotlight: NBCUniversal International Distribution


Ryan Eggold (The Blacklist) stars in the new medical drama New Amsterdam, which NBCUniversal International Distribution is showcasing this MIPCOM.

The new drama series is about a doctor at one of the largest hospitals in the U.S. who is determined to cut through the bureaucracy and put patients first. “The show has been given one of the best time slots on NBC this fall, following This Is Us,” says Belinda Menendez, the president and chief revenue officer for global distribution and international at NBCUniversal. “We feel that New Amsterdam really has everything: the medical genre, which travels so well internationally, a unique point of view and a stand-out lead actor.”

Jay Hernandez takes the lead as Thomas Magnum in Magnum P.I. “We believe this show will stand out as the Magnum brand is extremely well-known globally,” says Menendez.

In the drama The Enemy Within, an FBI agent enlists a former CIA operative (turned traitor) to help track down an elusive criminal. The show features a procedural story each week as well as a larger serialized arc involving the lead character.
