Mipcom: Global Screen’s ‘Pinocchio’ Goes East

Cast includes Mario Adorf and Ulrich Tukur

CANNES — Global Screen has sold animated-live action miniseries “Pinocchio” to the four Central and Eastern European territories.

The skein has been licensed to Czech Republic (Ceska Televize), Slovenia (RTV Slovenija) and Slovakia (Slovenska Televizia), while Russian distributor Mauris Film has picked up all rights and is considering a theatrical release in early 2014.

The series, which is in post-production, will air as this year’s Christmas highlight on German pubcaster ARD.

The original story, penned by Italian writer Carlo Collodi, has been transformed by director Anna Justice into a cute, modern adventure, which is suspenseful but always humorous and entertaining, according to Global Screen.

The cast is headed by Mario Adorf (“The Tin Drum,” “Rossini”) and Ulrich Tukur (“The White Ribbon,” “The Lives of Others”), while Pinocchio’s character is digitally animated by B Water Studios and Gradient FX.
The series is produced by FFP New Media for WDR/ARD.
