Mipcom: Beta Inks ‘Gomorrah’ Deals

CANNES — Beta Film has inked a number of deals on crime skein “Gomorrah” on the eve of its launch at TV mart Mipcom.

The Sky Italia series has been picked up by Sky Germany, HBO Nordic in Scandinavia and HBO Latin America. Arrow Film acquired the rights for U.K. and Lumiere for the Netherlands. Negotiations with a major French partner and a number of other international broadcasters are underway.

“Gomorrah,” which is based on the book by Roberto Saviano, is focused on Naples’ organized crime network the Camorra. When Pietro Savastano (Fortunato Cerlino), one of Naples’ most-feared Camorra bosses, is captured and sent to jail, his right-hand man Ciro Di Marzio (Marco D’Amore, “A Quiet Life”) sees an opportunity to become the new leader, which sparks a battle for control of the crime org.

The series is produced by Sky Italia, Cattleya and Fandango, in collaboration with La7 and Beta Film.

Stefano Sollima, helmer of the Sky Italia series “Romanzo Criminale,” serves as artistic director and directed six episodes. Directors Claudio Cupellini (“A Quiet Life”) and Francesca Comencini (“The White Space”) directed the remaining episodes. The series shot on location over 30 weeks in Naples, Rome, Milan, Ferrara, Ventimiglia and Barcelona.
