Canal Plus, RAI buy ‘Dresden’

ZDF miniseries recounts wartime inferno

BERLIN — Jan Mojto’s Beta Film has sold the ZDF miniseries “Dresden — The Inferno” to France’s Canal Plus and Italy’s RAI, company said Monday (Oct. 17), the first day of the Mipcom TV mart in Cannes.

Produced by Germany’s TeamWorx and Mojto’s production company EOS, the $12 million “Dresden” recounts the devastating Allied bombing of the German city in 1945, just weeks before the end of the war, through the eyes of a German nurse and the British bomber pilot she loves.

Directed by Roland Suso Richter (“The I Inside”), “Dresden” is in post and will air in Germany next year.

Beta sales exec Dirk Schuerhoff said the early sales were made on the basis of the pic’s “quality and huge emotional value,” adding that Beta expected to close further sales for the pic during Mipcom.
