Prexy pushes drama formats

HOLLYWOOD — Carlton America, the U.S.-based TV arm of Britain’s Carlton Intl. Media Group, is developing Carlton-made drama “Soldier, Soldier” and sci-fi series “UFO” for the American market.

Carlton America is partnered with writer/producer/director John Sacret Young (“The West Wing”) on “Soldier, Soldier” and with Pen Densham, Neil Kaplan and John Watson of Trilogy Entertainment (“The Outer Limits,” “The Twilight Zone”) on “UFO.”

“In our view, drama formats will be the next big trend in the global programming business,” Carlton America prexy-CEO Stephen Davis said Monday.

“Soldier, Soldier” chronicles the ups and downs of army life. Some 82 one-hour episodes were produced between 1991 and 1997 in the U.K.

“UFO,” created by sci-fi visionary Gerry Anderson (“Thunderbirds”), is a live-action series about the Supreme Headquarters Alien Defence Organisation, an elite group designed to protect Earth from alien invasion.

Housed in Carlton’s ITC library, 26 hourlong episodes of “UFO” have been produced. Densham, Kaplan and Watson will exec produce the program under the Trilogy banner.
