MIPCOM Spotlight: BBC Studios


Among BBC Studios’ MIPCOM highlights is Sherwood, centering on two killings that shatter an already-fractured mining community.

As antipathy builds between neighbors and toward police during the investigation, divisions sparked by a miners’ strike are inflamed.

Another crime drama on BBC Studios’ slate, Ragdoll focuses on the killing of six people, who were then dismembered and sewn together into one body. The killer sends police a list of his next victims, including a London Met policeman.

The Chelsea Detective follows the detective son of a local bookshop owner who is a far cry from the affluent elite whose crimes he’ll help solve.

“Covering various parts of the U.K. and different aspects to the detective teams out solving the crimes featured, these three series will…keep audiences thrilled and horrified at the same time,” says Caroline Stone, director of independent drama.

Stone adds, “I am looking forward to bringing such a full and strong slate of programs to our international customers.”
