CANNES — The $30 million mini-series “Titanic — Blood and Steel,” about building the doomed ocean liner, is to set sail in mainland Europe and Asia but so far lacks licensing deals in the U.S. and U.K.

The show, starring Chris Noth and Neve Campbell, has been acquired by Telenet and VMMA in Belgium, Fox in Bulgaria, DR in Denmark, Screen One in Iceland, Pro.TV in Romania and TV Joj in Slovakia. AETN has Pan Asia rights and Visionary has rights in Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia and Macedonia.

Now in post-production, De Angelis Group made the 12-part mini with RAI Italy, 3 Arts in Los Angeles, Canada’s CBC, Blighty’s Artists Studio, Tandem Communications in Germany, Epos Films in Ireland and Spain’s Antena 3. Tandem is handling worldwide distribution.
