CROSSING LINES Season Three – New Leads Goran Visnjic & Elizabeth Mitchell Join Donald Sutherland – Executive Producers Frank Spotnitz & Rola Bauer

13.02.2015

Munich, Germany, 20 Feb – Actors Goran Visnjic and Elizabeth Mitchell join Donald Sutherland in the production of CROSSING LINES season three, green-lit for 12 new episodes. The series also ushers in a new, creative team under Golden Globe® Award-winning, Emmy®-nominated writer and producer, Frank Spotnitz, who together with Emmy® Award-winning and Golden Globe® nominated Rola Bauer, are the series executive producers.

New series leads, Visnjic, known for his leading role on ER, and Mitchell, the Emmy® nominated star of the hit series, Lost, join the ensemble cast that includes Golden Globe® Award-winner Donald Sutherland (The Hunger Games, The Pillars of the Earth) and Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones, Brideshead Revisited). Also returning for season three is Lara Rossi (Life of Crime, Murder: Joint Enterprise). Additional new series regulars for season three: Stuart Martin (Game of Thrones, Babylon), and Naomi Battrick (Waterloo Road, Some Girls). Co-executive producer is Wendy Battles (Unforgettable, The Glades). Producing for Film United in Prague is Rick McCallum, producer of the global blockbuster Star Wars prequels: The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.
Crossing Lines season three is produced by TANDEM Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television Networks (AXN) and SAT.1 (Germany).


Goran Visnjic first came to international attention upon successfully stepping in for George Clooney, headlining the cast on the hit series, ER. Most recently, he starred in the TV series, Extant, as well as the critically acclaimed film sensation, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

 

Elizabeth Mitchell's starring role on the series, Lost, which became a cult favorite, established her appeal with audiences worldwide. Her breakthrough performance was playing opposite Angelina Jolie in the HBO telefilm, Gia. Once Upon a Time and Revolution are among the recent TV series in which she appeared.

"We're moving into a new era with Crossing Lines and are elated to have Goran and Elizabeth whose talents will bring a freshness to the new season's storylines," says Bauer. "Frank is a such a respected and sought after creative executive – what an honor to welcome someone of his caliber to reinvigorate Crossing Lines Season three. This was made possible by the support and belief from our partners, Sony AXN and SAT.1, as well as our shareholder, STUDIOCANAL."

 

"I am thrilled to be joining the incredible creative team TANDEM has assembled at Crossing Lines," says Spotnitz. "There are countless interesting and important stories to be told about crime in Europe, and we have a spectacular cast to take us through them. It's a really unique opportunity to create some pretty terrific television."

 

CROSSING LINES returns for an explosive season three, beginning six months after the heart-stopping conclusion of Season two, in which the cross-border unit's leader, Louis Daniel, was killed. After one of his top prosecutors vanishes, Dorn (Sutherland) must reactivate the ICC team. Marco Corazza (Visnjic), Carine Strand (Mitchell), Luke Wilkinson (Martin) and Ellie Delfont-Bogard (Battrick) are new ICC team members joining Sebastian Berger (Wlaschiha) and Arabela Seeger (Rossi). The third season of the series promises to be its most ambitious, with a new emphasis on relevant and contemporary cross-border crime, gut-wrenching character drama, and a reunited team of underdogs struggling to re-establish their battered identity.


CROSSING LINES taps into the charter of the International Criminal Court (ICC), to mandate a special crime unit, creating an organization functioning as a European FBI, to investigate serialized crimes that cross over European borders and to hunt down criminals to bring them to justice. The series was originally created by Edward Allen Bernero.

MIPCOM BREAKING NEWS: Haut et Court TV and July-August Productions Partnering on RUBBER DUCKS, a New One-hour Thriller/Drama Series Co-developed and Distributed by Tandem...

13.10.2014

Cannes, France, 13 Oct. – Haut et Court TV and July-August Productions to develop a new, 10x1-hr ecological & psychological thriller/drama series, Rubber Ducks, co-developed with Tandem, it was announced today by Caroline Benjo, Managing Director, Haut et Court TV (Les Revenants). Exclusive worldwide distribution will also be handled by Tandem.

A fictionalized story based on an actual experiment undertaken by NASA, Rubber Ducks explores ideas of ecological change not only on the environment but also on human behavior. In 2008, NASA embarked on a low-tech experiment, dropping 90 rubber duck toys through holes in a Greenland glacier, trying to track how the Arctic icecap is melting. Hoping the rubber ducks would find their way into channels beneath the hard-packed surface, scientists planned to track the flow of melting water into the ocean. Lost without a trace, the ducks pop up ten years later in unlikely isolated communities where the inhabitants are directly affected, in unexpected ways. Everything starts to change: emotions, relationships, love, sex, how we live and how we die. Could the impending catastrophe be more than climactic?

Says Caroline Benjo, "Following the path of The Returned's new take on a genre, we are thrilled to be producing this amazing high concept/ character-driven series, playing with the viewers expectations like any great modern TV storytelling -- entertaining, complex, frightening and funny at the same time, while scrutinizing our modern world's intimate idiosyncrasies through the most fascinating events."

July-August Productions' Eilon Ratzkovsky added, "Yael Hedaya's ability to merge our innermost thoughts and feelings with global scale environmental disorders will surely bring something fresh to our TV screens. The more we dig into this concept, the more fascinated we get."

"We have great admiration and respect for the incredible success and critical acclaim Haut et Court and July-August Productions have achieved with their remarkable projects and are very excited to be co-developing and distributing this thrilling and unique show with them," says Tandem's Executive VP / Partner Jonas Bauer. "Rubber Ducks -- with such a tantalizing storyline, it will surely appeal to audiences worldwide."

Rubber Ducks is written by Yael Hedaya, a novelist and screenwriter known for her work on the successful and highly acclaimed, award-winning Israeli drama series In Treatment, which HBO in the U.S. produced as an English-language version. Producers are Haut et Court's Caroline Benjo, Jimmy Desmarais, Carole Scotta and Simon Arnal and July-August Productions' Eilon Ratzkovsky, Lisa and Yossi Uzrad and Guy Jacuel.

EMMY® Award win for Event series World Without End...

16.09.2013

Munich, Germany/Los Angeles, CA, Sept 16 -- Mychael Danna was honored last night, Sun., Sept. 15, at the 2013 Primetime Creative Arts Emmy® Awards for Outstanding Music Composition for his score for the 8-hour adaptation of Ken Follett's bestselling novel, World Without End, produced by Tandem Communications and Take5 Productions in co-production with Galafilm in association with Ridley Scott and Tony Scott's Scott Free Films. Mychael Danna was also honored this year with the Golden Globe® and Oscar® for his score for the film, Life of Pi.

"We are thrilled for Mychael," says Rola Bauer, President / Partner Tandem Communications (a STUDIOCANAL company). "Mychael's incredible musical talent added rich layers and depth to our show. It wouldn't have been the same without his insightful score."

Mychael Danna is an Academy Award®-winning film composer recognized for his evocative blending of non-western traditions with orchestral and electronic music. He composed the trans-culturally inspired 2013 Oscar and Golden Globe-winning score for Ang Lee's Life of Pi, as well as many award-winning scores for his longtime collaborator, Atom Egoyan. Danna has composed for all of Egoyan's films since 1987's Family Viewing, winning the Genie for their films Exotica, Felicia's Journey, Ararat and The Sweet Hereafter. Other noted credits include Oscar-winning and Oscar-nominated films such as Moneyball, Capote, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Monsoon Wedding, Shattered Glass, Little Miss Sunshine, (500) Days of Summer, Surf's Up, Water, Antwone Fisher, Being Julia and Girl, Interrupted. "The most gratifying filmmaking experiences are ones that take effort to unpeel the layers surrounding the heart of the story and to find the best musical expression of that heart," says Danna. "Those are always the film scores I am most proud of."

World Without End stars Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City, The Big C), two-time Oscar-nominee, Golden Globe and BAFTA-winner Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, The Young Victoria), Olivier® and Tony®-nominee Ben Chaplin (The Thin Red Line, Me and Orson Welles), Oscar-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Peter Firth (MI5, The Hunt for Red October), BAFTA®-nominee Charlotte Riley (The Duchess, Wuthering Heights), Rupert Evans (Hellboy, Agora), Nora von Waldstaetten (Carlos, The Countess), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (What's Your Number?, The Raven) and Tom Weston-Jones (Copper, MI5).

World Without End is the rousing epic tale of 'Caris,' a feisty young woman, who inspires her medieval town of Kingsbridge to confront the most powerful forces of her time, namely the Church and Crown, as they fight to save their town from ruin and, ultimately, usher in a new era of freedom, innovation and enlightenment.

Sutherland will be honored during the Opening Ceremony with the inaugural Crystal Nymph Award for his lifelong achievements in film and television. "Crossing Lines is an ideal project for the Opening Ceremony premiere screening because it is a truly global production, and a prototype for what we believe will be the future of the television business model," Laurent Puons commented.

Ed Bernero
"International crime has historically been a problem very difficult to overcome," says Ed Bernero. "The volume of these crimes has expanded in a world in which we're all wired, giving criminals increasing access to high tech illegal activities. But the laws do not support cross border investigations, often giving criminals the edge. The unique team in Crossing Lines WOULD have the authority to pursue these crimes, giving our international audience a fresh and powerful drama. We couldn't be happier to see it open this year's Monte-Carlo Television Festival."
Rola Bauer
"We are honored and thrilled to see Crossing Lines given the first-ever distinction of a drama SERIES opening the Monte-Carlo Television Festival," says Rola Bauer. "Ed Bernero's brilliant stories, our gifted cast, the extraordinary locations we've shot in Europe, all combine to make a truly international drama series that literally and figuratively transcends boundaries. With the support of STUDIOCANAL, we have completed the first 10 hours and we are extremely proud to show the results at Monte-Carlo."




Crossing Lines is produced by Tandem Communications (The Pillars of the Earth, World Without End) and Bernero Productions (Criminal Minds, Third Watch) in co-production with TF1 Production/TF1 Network and in association with Sony Pictures Television Networks. The series was created and developed by Edward Allen Bernero and Tandem President Rola Bauer, who both serve as Executive Producers.

Alice had never been to this part of France, but she is driven by an inexplicable compulsion to find out the secrets of the past and of a mysterious woman who lived 800 years ago, ALAÏS. What is Alaïs trying to lead her to? Why can't she shake the feeling that something monumental is at stake?

Alice knows that there are people willing to kill for whatever is behind the meaning of the labyrinth she found carved into the wall of a cave. But she must now race to find out what happened to Alaïs and how she can prevent the past from recurring.

Based on Kate Mosse's New York Times Bestseller and multi-million selling international hit novel, Labyrinth will take you on a ride through the here and now and the crusades of medieval times. Two very different heroines, living in different times must somehow work together in order to save a 4,000-year-old secret from getting into the wrong hands.

World Without End picks up with a new cast of characters, including Caris, a feisty young woman played by Charlotte Riley (The Duchess, Wuthering Heights), who inspires her medieval town of Kingsbridge to confront the most powerful forces of her time, namely the Church and the Crown, as they fight to save their town from ruin and, ultimately, usher in a new era of freedom, innovation and enlightenment.
As the network showcased its TV About Movies approach with The Kennedys, REELZ' all-absorbing presentation of World Without End will take viewers behind the scenes of the spectacular mini-series, into the careers of the cast and creators and deep into the vast world of movies that derive from best-selling books, depict the Middle Ages and explore the timeless intrigue of politics and religion.

"World Without End is a monumental mini-series, told in a way that's as big as the author himself. With The Kennedys we conditioned our audience to know that our network is home to the biggest mini-series and World Without End is exactly that," said Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of ReelzChannel. "We're proud to take our viewers inside Ken Follett's intriguing and magnificent world through a story that is cinematic in scope with an award-winning cast, crew and creators."

"Given their impressive marketing and promotion campaign for The Kennedys, REELZ emerged as an exciting and compelling partner to present World Without End to the U.S. audience. This project is more than a labor of passion; it was conceived and produced as an eight-hour feature film with a team of talent that possesses the craftsmanship to bring that goal home. We look forward now to partnering with Stan Hubbard and REELZ to go for the gold with World Without End," said Rola Bauer, President and Partner of TANDEM COMMUNICATIONS (a STUDIOCANAL company).
