Red Arrow International has in its catalog for NATPE Budapest the format Look Me in the Eye, a social experiment that puts the power of eye contact to the test by attempting to reunite divided friends and families.
The company is also presenting season two of the genre drama Cleverman. Henrik Pabst, Red Arrow International’s managing director, says the second season is “more action-packed and ambitious than ever before.” The show—which stars, among others, Iain Glen (Game of Thrones)—has been a hit on ABC in Australia and SundanceTV in the U.S.
There’s also the doc series Empire Builders, which brings to life ten great empires, with each episode visiting the ten most significant sites that defined their achievements and legacy. “The show features CGI, dramatic reconstructions and history experts to reveal the stories of extraordinary empires that are still shaping the way we live our lives today,” says Pabst. The stories and sites examined range from the mystery of Tutankhamun’s tomb to the majesty of the Taj Mahal to the wonders of Machu Picchu and the architecture of Sagrada Família.
“Our slate this NATPE Budapest highlights our commitment to working with some of the world’s best creative talent across all genres,” says Pabst. “From our ambitious international scripted series such as Cleverman to unique formats such as Look Me in the Eye, Red Arrow is synonymous with high-quality international content. Red Arrow International has grown over the last few years to become the home for ambitious international drama, factual shows and formats.”
