French hooked on ‘Mysteries’

German sellers find takers at Mip TV mart

BERLIN — German sellers continued to rack up sales at the Mip TV mart in Cannes.

French pubcaster France 3 picked up 12 feature-length made-for-TV movies based on the popular “Commissario Guido Brunetti Mysteries” by American writer Donna Leon.

Distributed internationally by Bavaria Media Television, the movie series about the indefatigable Venetian police inspector are hugely popular in Germany and major ratings winners for pubcaster ARD, regularly attracting up to five million viewers.

Rival sales company Telepool, which handles content from pubcaster ARD as well as commercial web RTL, has seen a slew of sales, with movies, series and documentary fare going to buyers around the world.

Spain’s Forta picked up RTL’s “Black Plague”; Sweden’s STV and Taiwan’s Hollywood Channel nabbed ARD’s “Mogadishu Welcome”; and China’s Phoenix SatTV took RTL’s “The Dark Side” and ARD’s “Tatort” (Scene of the Crime).

Telepool’s hot-selling series included RTL’s “Alarm for Cobra 11” and “Medicopter 117,” which went to Spain’s Cuatro.

MTV Russia took hit ARD series “Turkish for Beginners” and “Berlin, Berlin”; and France’s NRJ 12 bought RTL’s “Law & Order” clone “Im Namen des Gesetzes” (In the Name of the Law).
