MIPTV Spotlight: Gaumont Television


CANNES: The atmospheric thriller The Frozen Dead, one of Gaumont Television’s latest projects, is a six-part murder-mystery series set in an exotic location.

The show is currently in production in the Pyrenees mountains. The company is highlighting that title, along with Spy City, which Erik Pack, president of international distribution, describes as “an epic spy tale from the mind of William Boyd, the world-renowned master of the spy story.”

There is also Narcos, a Netflix series focused on the infamous Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. “Narcos has proven to be a global hit, really resonating with viewers all over the world,” says Pack, who adds that Gaumont Television is currently negotiating home-entertainment agreements for the show’s first and second seasons.

Pack adds: “We are continuing to develop big series ideas with big talent attached.”
