Looks Like Berlin Station Will Make It to Europe

But when?  Thanks to @Crissyinwm for the link, here.

This is the specific quote about Berlin Station. 

A bit of romance, “which seems to have completely disappeared from TV,” would be nice, said Stewart of Italy’s Mediaset. “And just how many films can we make into series, digging out old stories and franchises?” she asked, citing Lethal Weapon, Frequency and Training Day, all from Warner Bros; Emerald City and Taken from ABC and The Exorcist from Fox.

That said, she called Training Day one of her “personal possible favorites” among pilot hopefuls, along with Eyewitness (ABC), APB (Fox), Zoobiquity (Fox), The Shooter (Paramount), Berlin Station (Paramount). She’s curious to see Drew (CBS), Riverdale (WB) and Dream Team (WB).

Mediaset is an international corporation that acquires TV rights for output ( i.e. broadcast) on free TV channels in various foreign countries, including Italy and Spain. The quote above is about the Italian Mediaset director of acquisitions, and her sense that she’s going to like Berlin Station. (Also good news, that Berlin Station is among those shows being pitched, as is Epix’s other new original series, Graves).

I’m guessing that when she sees the pilot for Berlin Station, she’s going to want to acquire it. I’m also guessing that other foreign outlets will feel the same.

The not such great news for some fans, is that there is a preference for dubbing, over subtitles.

Now, if I can only find out if there are some folks from Mexico at the upfronts. I assume so. We’ve been getting, in almost real time, The Night Manager, Fear the Walking Dead, The Good Wife, and many others – mainly on AMC, A & E, and TNT.

However, it is also true that often, these series are shown a few weeks or months after they air in the U.S.

  1. I’m very glad Berlin Station was in the market and has apparently been noticed. I hope it can sell well internationally, for the sake of RA and his fans. As you said, trouble is we’ll have to wait months because of dubbing. And this is the worst thing ever. But I’ll be very happy if Italy will air BS. 🙂


  2. I have my doubts that BS will make Ito Australia. Even if it did would be next Autumn (2017)we can’t get Epix here. Shame.
