International collaborations continue to define the global scripted drama business, and ZDF Studios has several in its offering, including the thriller The Window. “Created and written by BAFTA- and Emmy Award-winning screenwriter James Payne (The Musketeers, Hooten & the Lady, Mr. Selfridge), The Window is a dramatic thriller that explores the complex and dark off-field machinations of the soccer world,” says Robert Franke, VP Drama. “It is particularly pertinent in light of the upcoming major soccer events.”

While The Window is set in the difficult world of soccer, All3Media International is offering a look at showbiz with The Kardashians: Billion Dollar Dynasty. “The Kardashians are one of the most recognizable brands in the world, so I’m thrilled to offer this documentary throughout the region, which offers nostalgic entertainment and a fascinating new look at the world’s most famous family,” comments Yari Torres, VP for Latin America. Torres also highlights Black Snow, Gordon’s Future Food Stars, The Man Who Played with Fire, The Messenger and The Traitors.

Estudios RCN also has a portfolio of productions that have crossed borders with human and dramatic stories. Among them is Rigo, To Fall and Rise Again, the story of one of the most beloved and important cyclists that the Colombian mountains have produced. “Rigo is undoubtedly one of the most important productions because he is a layered character, genuine and original, full of attributes that make him universal despite being very Colombian,” explains Alexander Marín, VP of distribution. He also highlights Simply Ana, Tia Alison, Until Money Drives Us Apart and Leandro Diaz – The Eyes of the Soul.

ZDF Studios is complementing its portfolio with a range of suspense stories from Europe, including Dear Vivi, written and produced by Natalie Scharf. “Dear Vivi is a riveting thriller, an emotional mix of family drama and thriller that unravels the mystery behind the shocking murder of a wife and mother,” says Sebastian Krekeler, Director Drama.

Volver a caer, inspired by Leo Tolstoy’s masterpiece, tells the story of Anna, a retired Olympic diver who has come of age in the prime of her life. “The series delves into the difficulty of finding happiness through the story of three couples who represent three very different ways of living love,” explains Jerry Rodriguez, senior VP of scripted.

From ZDF Studios, Clean Sweep stars award-winning Irish actress Charlene McKenna (Bloodlands, Peaky Blinders, Vienna Blood). “Co-produced in Ireland by one of the country’s most successful independent production companies, ShinAwiL (Dancing with the Stars Ireland, Miss Scarlet and the Duke) and Canada’s Incendo (Be Mine Valentine, Terror Train), the thriller series Clean Sweep will premiere on Sundance Now in the U.S. and RTÉ in Ireland,” says Yi Qiao, Director Drama.
