World Screen is presenting the eighth annual Trendsetter Awards in partnership with MIPCOM, celebrating Eric Newman (Narcos), Lorenzo Mieli (The Young Pope, My Brilliant Friend) and Álex Pina (Money Heist/La Casa de Papel).
This year’s Trendsetter Awards honor gifted individuals who are driving today’s golden age of television. The honorees are Newman, executive producer and showrunner for Narcos; Mieli, producer of The Young Pope and My Brilliant Friend; and Álex Pina, creator, executive producer and writer for Money Heist (La Casa de Papel). They will receive the Trendsetter Award at the end of the Talent Behind the Camera session at MIPCOM on Tuesday, October 16.
Taking place at the Grand Auditorium in the Palais, this must-attend panel will see the honorees engage in a lively discussion about their many responsibilities as they write and/or executive produce, supervise other writers, manage talent and maintain relationships with studios, channels and platforms, in conversation with Anna Carugati, World Screen’s group editorial director.
