FRESH TV FICTION
Regarding the freshest TV fiction content, Virginia Mouseler pointed out that in the last MIPTV 2020, the trend was "We May Survive," and today, "we are all survivors in this tough era," affirmed Mouseler. "Now I feel that the series that defines the era is 'It's a sin' (distributed by All3Media). "I found it the most tragic and moving series this season. It tells stories of survivors but is also stories of liberation", she asserted.
