MIPCOM Spotlight: CBS Studios International


CANNES: The action-adventure drama MacGyver recently premiered on CBS’s fall schedule and, thanks to CBS Studios International (CBSSI), international buyers can license this reimagining of an ’80s classic for their local territories.

MacGyver is a household name with a great legacy, so buyers will be excited to see this series rebooted for 2016,” says Barry Chamberlain, the president of sales at CBSSI. The series Bull also recently had its U.S. debut. “Bull is a fresh take on a legal drama with an internationally renowned lead actor, Michael Weatherly,” Chamberlain says.

The return of Twin Peaks marks another highlight for CBSSI. “Twin Peaks struck a chord with viewers when it first premiered, so the whole world is looking forward to seeing David Lynch’s vision of the show 25 years later,” says Chamberlain.

He adds: “We continue to offer the best American content to the international marketplace.”
