Granada, RTL team on drama

Deal includes drama series, TV movie, sitcom

Granada Germany, part of Blighty’s ITV Studios, has been commissioned by RTL Germany to develop three original scripted projects for the web.

The deal coincides with the Cologne-based producer’s beefed-up activities in scripted and factual entertainment programming.

The partnership will incorporate a primetime drama, family TV movie and family sitcom.

Granada Germany has appointed Gerda Mueller to develop the drama project as full-time senior producer.

Mueller recently exec produced the Granada Germany crime drama “Der Letzte Bulle” for the Sat.1 web.

“In the past three years, there has been a significant recovery for scripted formats, especially among homegrown sitcoms and series, which have been receiving superb ratings,” said Granada Germany’s managing director Jan Kromschroeder.

At the Mip TV sales mart, ITV Studios also announced that Italy’s Rete 4, owned by Mediaset, is to make its own version of international reality hit “Four Weddings.”

RTI Prods. will produce four two-hour episodes of the show, to premiere in the fall, for Rete 4 with ITV Studios. Agreement is the fifth format deal for the skein.
