David Victori‘s “Burn Barcelona,” Guille Bandrés’ “Fuera de campo” and Pau Escribano and Oriol Jara’s “Barcelona 93” were standouts at TV Pitchbox, a pioneering pitching event for Spanish TV drama projects, organized in Madrid by online platform Filmarket Hub.
With more than 10,000 users across Europe and Latin America, Filmarket Hub aims to give visibility to film and TV projects in development stage and encourage new production deals. Filmarket Hub also organizes Sitges Pitchbox, hosted by Catalonia’s Sitges Film Festival, whose recent edition, held in October, was conducted by Guillermo del Toro.
Chosen from a total of 200 submitted TV series projects, the seven finalists were pitched to a selected group of TV executives, which included Spain-based SVOD operators Amazon Prime Video, Telefonica-Movistar+ and HBO España; top free-to-air broadcasters Mediaset España, Atresmedia and RTVE, plus global sales and rights management company Eccho Rights.
The pitching sessions at TV Pitchbox underscore TV market trends in Spain – such as that thrillers continue as the fiction genre of choice among Spanish creators, often mixed with doses of social-issue concerns, historical settings and character drama.
The lion’s share of the Pitchbox projects target potential Generation Z audiences, digital natives highly familiarized with online and SVOD TV proffered by top local and international TV players.
