CANNES: The latest projects in the Miramax catalog feature “stars and stories that resonate with audiences worldwide,” says Joe Patrick, the company’s executive VP of worldwide television sales and home entertainment.

He cites as examples Southside with You, inspired by the first date of Michelle and Barack Obama; Bridget Jones’s Baby, which marks the next chapter in the beloved franchise; The 9th Life of Louis Drax, based on an international best seller; and Bad Santa 2, featuring the holiday return of raucous Willie Soke.

On the TV side, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, based on the cult classic film, is now in its third season in the U.S. The catalog is also home to Miramax, Revolution Studios, Samuel Goldwyn and Woodfall Films libraries, which cover everything from comedy to action, drama and horror.
