ATF Spotlight: ITV Studios Global Entertainment


SINGAPORE: The upcoming NBC series Aquarius is being presented by ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) at ATF.

The 1960s-set drama stars David Duchovny as a Los Angeles police sergeant who is tracking Charles Manson. Hyeonza Hong, the senior VP of sales for Asia at ITVS GE, believes this title will be a top draw at ATF because Duchovny is “well known to Asian audiences from his role in The X-Files.” She adds, “His talent, combined with that of the incredible writer and executive producer John McNamara (whose credits include In Plain Sight and Profit) and the very experienced executive producer Marty Adelstein (whose credits include Prison Break and Last Man Standing), make it a must-watch drama for 2015.”

The company is also bringing to the market Keep It in the Family, a game-show format that sees three generations of two families compete in various challenges. “It’s rare to find a format these days that is for families and appeals to all generations,” says Hong. “This title is exactly that.”

Then there is Thunderbirds Are Go, a reinvention of the 50-year-old classic series. “The quality of work, sound, visuals and story lines that have gone into this title is really state-of-the-art,” says Hong. “Thunderbirds Are Go features five brothers working together as a team to save the world, which is a fantastic message of heroism that today’s children can admire, not to mention their cool, high-tech craft!”
