MIPTV Spotlight: Dick Clark Productions


The user-generated clip series Fail Army hits 100 episodes this year, and Dick Clark Productions is bringing the show to MIPTV this year.

Fail Army continues to surpass even our highest expectations,” says Bob Kennedy, the senior VP of sales and acquisitions at Dick Clark Productions. “Fail Army integrates amazing brand awareness with the successful production of an internet sensation that has the look and feel of a quality television show.”

The company also has in its catalog awards programming such as the Golden Globes. “The Globes keeps growing in stature, as well as audience, year on year, thanks in part to our production values and the increased high quality now seen in scripted television,” Kennedy says.

Another company highlight is Virtuosos, a format based on the hit Hungarian classical-music competition featuring highly talented children and young adults.

“We have some great series currently in development that we look forward to sharing soon,” Kennedy adds.
