I was wondering how come Richard Armitage and cast and crew of Berlin Station were at Berlinale as a group – since they’re making a TV series, and not a film.
Thanks to the Richard Armitage Bulgaria Facebook Page, I have my answer.
Screen Daily announced
Paramount Television’s Berlin Station is set to become the first international TV series to benefit from the recently created German Motion Picture Fund (GMPF).
The fund provides financial grants to Berlin productions helping to defray German costs.
The announcement was made in connection with EFM’s (European Film Market) and Berlinale Co-production Market’s second annual Drama Series Days. See here, For more about EFM’s Drama Series Days,
It’s going to be big, IMO.
