NATPE sees deals for ‘Stars,’ ‘Cloudstreet’

BBC dancing format goes to Panama

Tuesday saw plenty of deals made at NATPE, which runs through Wednesday afternoon.

Among them was BBC Worldwide Content & Production landing its much-recreated format ”Dancing With the Stars” in yet another country: Panama.

In a reversal of the now-established rules at the new NATPE — American content sold to distributors abroad — Ovation inked a deal for Aussie shingle Screentime Pty’s period mini ”Cloudstreet,” based on the novel by Tim Winton. The book had already been adapted into a critically acclaimed production at the National Theater with a running time roughly equal to the upcoming mini’s five hours.
