DISCOP Johannesburg Spotlight: NBCUniversal International Distribution


Two new dramas, New Amsterdam and The Enemy Within, are among the highlights from NBCUniversal International Distribution for DISCOP Johannesburg.

“Both are character-driven shows with high production values and diverse casting,” says Don McGregor, executive VP, sales liaison. “They follow a procedural storyline each week; however, they also have serialized story arcs that span across the series to keep viewers coming back. This is exactly the type of programming that African buyers and audiences are looking for.”

The company is also presenting the unscripted action competition show The Titan Games, featuring Dwayne Johnson, “who has a massive fan base across the continent,” McGregor says. “African audiences will love seeing everyday people competing in this high-stakes, fun and dramatic show.”

He adds: “Buyers are looking for stand-out programming that draws audiences in and compels them to watch every episode.”
