MIPTV Spotlight: APT Worldwide


The top program highlights from APT Worldwide include Confluence, a three-part series exploring the ways art, science and technology come together to spark creativity.

It spotlights engineer and artist Zoe Laughlin, fashion designer Iris van Herpen and violinist Joshua Bell, among others.

Beneath the Polar Sun, another APT Worldwide title, follows an Arctic expedition that gets caught in collapsing ice, revealing the disasters that can occur when the planet’s global cooling system doesn’t work properly, “an aspect of climate change that isn’t often explored but impacts us all,” says Judy Barlow, executive VP of international sales.

America the Bountiful, meanwhile, “is a feast for the eyes, giving international viewers a look at the food and traditions in the heartland of America instead of the typical tourist destinations,” Barlow says.

Barlow notes that “APT Worldwide is bringing a strong slate of new science, art, nature, history, food and travel programs to MIPTV.”
