TV Drama Screenings Festival: All3Media International


The All3Media International lineup in the TV Drama Screenings Festival speaks to the diversity of the company’s scripted offering.

On the thriller front, there’s Better, which David Swetman, senior VP of content and commercial strategy, bills as a “messy, human, crime-filled story from the award-winning team at Sister, set in the atmospheric Leeds and led by gripping performances from BAFTA-nominated Leila Farzad and Andrew Buchan.”

Swetman also highlights the cast and creatives behind Mayflies, which stars Martin Compston and is produced by Synchronicity Films, adapted from Andrew O’Hagan’s best-selling novel, presenting “a powerful look at a male friendship that faces the ultimate test.”

All3Media is also showcasing the Australian crime drama Black Snow, set in two different time periods as it follows a murder investigation.

Meanwhile, the lush The Confessions of Frannie Langton is set in Georgian London and hails from the team at Drama Republic. “Adapted by author Sara Collins from her celebrated novel, this acclaimed series combines a compelling murder mystery with a searing depiction of race, class and oppression,” Swetman notes.

Rounding out the slate are two comedies: Detectorists, with three seasons available, and Plebs, with five seasons on offer.
