MIPTV Spotlight: Global Screen


On offer from Global Screen, the thriller event movie The Joshua Profile is based on the best-selling book by writer Sebastian Fitzek.

“This nail-biting thriller deals with an explosive subject that’s already frighteningly real: predictive policing—data-based crime prevention,” says Alexandra Heidrich, the head of TV sales and acquisitions at Global Screen. “In a race against time, a law-abiding citizen and loving father is chased through the vibrant metropolis of Berlin for a crime he hasn’t committed—yet. Breathless tension is guaranteed.”

The company also has on its MIPTV roster Let It Glow: How Pauline Saved Christmas, an event series. When an impostor is chosen as the new Santa Claus, Santa’s gift bag and closest confidante, Beutolomäus, sets out to find the real one.

“Live action combined with CGI animation, in 24 short episodes of 15 minutes each, is the perfect mix for families eagerly awaiting the Christmas holidays,” says Heidrich. “The frosty elements are not the only reason friends and families draw closer around Christmas time. Although many focus more on materialistic gifts, the holiday season reminds us to make time for the important things in life such as spending time with our loved ones. This modern fairy tale for young and old—with well-known and new Christmas figures and full of magic, secrets, fantasy and a good dose of humor—is a great opportunity to bring together the whole family.”

Heidrich adds, “Global Screen always seeks to deliver high-quality entertainment for adults and kids alike.”
