ORF-Enterprise is back in Cannes for MIPCOM 2021 to present fresh titles from the brand-new line-up. “Our absolute priority this year is getting back to in-person business. ORF-Enterprise continues to offer high-quality content from various genres in a colorful program catalog. We are delighted to further guarantee an exceptional content output and are looking forward to finally meeting our long-standing clients and business partners face-to-face in Cannes again,” emphasizes CEO of ORF-Enterprise, Oliver Böhm.
ORF UNIVERSUM Nature, led by Gernot Lecher, adds four new Wildlife & Nature documentaries to the autumn line-up; “Hudson River - Journey into the Wild”, “Sardinia - Ship of Stone”, “Austria's Wild Heritage - One Country Six National Parks”, and the two-parter “Colombia – Wild and Free”. The documentaries show with visually stunning Ultra HD images the dazzling and extraordinary variety of wildlife on three continents.
The editorial team of UNIVERSUM History, headed by Caroline Haidacher, presents the highlights “1278 - Battle for Europe”, “Emperor Augustus - Tyrant and Peacemaker”, as well as “The Rothschild Legacy”. The productions are devoted to a battle that represents a turning point in world history, they explore the life of an emperor with two names and two faces, and lastly, the compelling docudrama sheds light on the history of the Rothschild Family through the eyes of Miriam Rothschild, a renowned scientist of the 20th century.
“Conspiracy” is the latest addition to the successful TATORT crime-movie brand, consisting of 26 thrilling movies where detectives Moritz Eisner and Bibi Fellner embark on an exciting search for clues in criminal cases. And, in the upcoming and final season 20 of the popular detective series “Soko Kitzbuehel”, the Alpine cops are again kept on their toes by baffling cases. A witty and long-running hit-show, not only in living rooms at its home market, but also beyond Austria’s borders.
In the brand-new ORF comedy series “We are Family”, by head writer Mischa Zickler (“Walking on Sunshine”), everything revolves around Daniela and Andreas, who make regular visits to their couples’ therapist and always have astonishing stories to tell. Together with 11 new episodes of “Suburbia – Women on the Edge”, the newly released 3rd season of the comedy series “Walking on Sunshine”, and the 7th season of the internationally successful crime series “Fast Forward”, entertainment is provided at its best and the colorful fiction portfolio complemented well.
Armin Luttenberger, Head of Content Sales International at ORF-Enterprise, adds that: “At MIPCOM we will celebrate Blue-Chip Documentaries from ORF’s award-winning UNIVERSUM strand, with a dedicated History slate added in 2013. 'Colombia - Wild and Free' and 'Emperor Augustus - Tyrant and Peacemaker' are only two out of nine brand-new hours adding to ORF’s Blue-Chip factual slate this season. Scripted content ‘Made in Austria’ has been a success in the past seasons, as 'Soko Kitzbuehel' made a name for being a long-running and best-selling crime series in recent sales records. We are proud to present this final 20th season in the grand series finale, alongside the brand-new comedy series 'We are Family' and further scripted highlights kicking off this autumn that offer great entertainment for audiences globally.”
