Direct to Series 2015
Direct to Series is back in America and announces its 3rd edition . For US professionals and dedicated to French television series, the event will take place on October 27 & 28 in Los Angeles at the Pacific Design Center
Organized by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States and by the Ile-de-France Film Commission, DIRECT TO SERIES offers American television professionals (producers, screenwriters, showrunners, network buyers, and programmers) the chance to discover a panorama of the best current French TV series through a wide selection programs that are original, singular and ambitious in their creative design and methods of production.
The objective of this event is equally to encourage meetings:
- between American and French writers to foster relationships and create international connections in hopes of collaborations, enriching the creative process, and as a platform for working together and sharing methods through case study.
- between producers, French and American, to initiate new co-productions.
- between professionals from both countries, to promote film locations and shooting in France, and to display the skills and experience of these French professionals.
This year, the closing program of the Direct to Series 3rd season, will be the American premieres of two celebrated French series of the year: Versailles and Trepalium. Both series were shot in various French locations and symbolize the renewal and the diversity of French creativity in storytelling.
DIRECT TO SERIES is also proud to announce that the writer Douglas Kennedy will do us the honor of coming on October 28 at 11.30 am, to talk about his new experience as a TV writer for the television adaptation of two of his most famous novels, A special relationship and The pursuit of happiness, with French producer Sydney Gallonde.
