MIPCOM 2013: ORF Breaks New Grounds

Cannes / Vienna, October 10th 2013

After successful sales in Europe and Russia, the ORF crime series "Fast Forward" has now attracted US networks. CBS commissioned a pilot script. This is the first time ever that an Austrian TV-format has made it to the US.

Up to now ORF’s formats have been successfully offered in Europe; “Lonely Hearts Club" has been optioned to Finland and France. Eyeworks has signed off an agency agreement to distribute the worldwide rights of the popular scripted format “The Lottery Kings”, after having it produced for the German speaking market.

Marion Camus-Oberdorfer, Head of Content Sales International at ORF-Enterprise, says: “Mipcom is a very important market-place for ORF: this time we could again convince all our clients with a thrilling new portfolio. For the first time we could fix a deal with Discovery Channel CEE/MENA: the exceptional documentary “Sarajevo – The Assassination” will air in these territories.”

Again, new blue-chip titles from ORF’s renowned nature and wildlife-strand UNIVERSUM have been picked up by broadcasters around the world: “The Empress and the Forest” will be aired in France (ARTE), Switzerland (RTS), Germany (BR), Ireland (RTE) and Thailand (TBS). “The Return of the Hoopoe” was commissioned by Australia (SBS), Korea (EBS) and Thailand (TPBS). The two-parter “Schladming – Magic Mountains” was taken by Spain (TVE) and Thailand (TPBS).

The Iranian pubcaster IRIB will sign a 50+ hours documentary output deal with ORF-Enterprise.

More than 60 hours for Video on Demand will soon be available on Microsoft’s Xbox in the German Speaking Territories.
