MIPTV Spotlight: Entertainment One


The provocative drama Mary Kills People, being presented to global buyers by Entertainment One (eOne), is set in the world of assisted suicide.

“It’s a unique idea paired with bold, complex characters and gripping story lines that brilliantly balances drama with some humor,” says Stuart Baxter, the president of Entertainment One Television International.

Gap Year, formerly known as Foreign Bodies, is a series about a motley group of travelers who embark on a three-month trip across Asia. “This charming series features a diverse cast as well as smart and witty writing that explores the pleasures and pains of traveling,” Baxter says.

The eOne slate also includes Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. Baxter calls it a “strong factual series that has taken the late-night talk shows by storm with its candid and satirical coverage of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”

“Our strategy is to partner with the best creative talent, resulting in high-end, compelling programming that will appeal to audiences globally,” Baxter says.
