MIPCOM Debut for Alice & Jack


MIPCOM is hosting a premiere for Alice & Jack, the new drama series created and written by Victor Levin (Mad Men, Mad About You) and starring Andrea Riseborough (To Leslie, Birdman) and Domhnall Gleeson (Brooklyn, The Revenant).

The premiere will be staged on Monday, October 16, at 6 p.m. in the Grand Auditorium in Cannes’ Palais des Festivals. Open to all market delegates, it will be followed by a Q&A session with the team behind the project.

Finnish film director and screenwriter Juho Kuosmanen (Compartment 6) is the lead director on the series, and Hong Khaou (Lilting) directs the second block. Executive producers on the project include Levin, Riseborough, Gleeson, Kuosmanen, Richard Yee and Krishnendu Majumdar for Me + You Productions; Michael London and Shannon Gaulding for Groundswell; Lorenzo De Maio for De Maio Entertainment; and Rebecca Dundon and Hilary Martin for Fremantle. Tracy O’Riordan produces for Me + You Productions.

Alice & Jack promises to be very special,” said Lucy Smith, director of MIPCOM CANNES and MIPJunior. “An extraordinary lineup of international talent in front of and behind the camera, collaborating on a story about the most universal of themes and (rightly) highly anticipated. It bears all the hallmarks of a premiere we are proud to present to the global industry in Cannes.”

Jens Richter, CEO of commercial and international at Fremantle, said: “We’re thrilled to premiere Alice & Jack to the international market in the headline slot at MIPCOM. This is an ambitious, emotive and cinematic series that features mesmerizing performances from leading global actors Andrea Riseborough and Domhnall Gleeson. From a talented creative team, including award-winning writer Victor Levin, this seminal series is reflective of the caliber of dramas that we are excited to present at this year’s market.”
