Spotlight: Banijay Rights


Leading Banijay Rights’ drama highlights, Stonehouse tells the true story of disgraced Labour minister John Stonehouse.

Meanwhile, the prison drama Screw is set to return for a second season in 2023.

In Signora Volpe, a former spy arrives in Italy for a wedding, only for the groom to disappear and a dead body to surface.

All three series have a “high-value story [told] in an engaging and warm manner,” says Simon Cox, executive VP of content and acquisitions. “This is common across these stories, [whether] set in a prison, 1950s British parliament or a sunny Italian town.”

Cox adds, “These three dramas are as diverse in their storytelling as they are in the audiences they are intended to delight.”
