Agnieszka Holland’s ‘Napoleon’ Among Co-Pro Series Lineup for Berlin
The producers of a new series about Napoleon Bonaparte to be helmed by Agnieszka Holland will pitch the project to potential partners in Berlin at the Co-Pro Series event, which is part of the Berlinale Co-Production Market and the Drama Series Days. The Co-Pro event has a strong pedigree, with “Babylon Berlin” and “Valkyrien” among the series pitched at earlier editions.

Holland’s latest film, “Mr. Jones,” is in competition in Berlin. Her TV credits include HBO series “House of Cards” and “Burning Bush.” The “Napoleon” project will focus on the cult of personality that the titular leader engendered, with echoes of modern-day political strong men. Writing team Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris, whose credits include “Bulletproof Monk” and “Robin Hood,” will pen the series.

The Co-Pro Series format sees scripted shows pitched to an audience of potential partners before breakout meetings and networking events.

The 2019 lineup is heavy on Scandi series.
