MIPCOM Spotlight: Sonar Entertainment


Inspired by the film and novel of the same name, Das Boot has already been sold in a number of major territories around the world and Sonar Entertainment is looking to further the reach of the 8×1-hour drama series.

“With a cinematic look and feel, it features French, German and English dialogue and characters throughout,” says David Ellender, the company’s president of global distribution and co-productions. The catalog also includes The Son, starring Pierce Brosnan, and Taboo, led by Tom Hardy.

“In addition to showcasing scripted series, we have expanded our genre offerings to include kids’, family, factual and lifestyle titles,” Ellender says. Highlights include the kids’ series Go Away, Unicorn! and the lifestyle show Kickasso, which chronicles the hustle of a custom sneaker artist.
