Sony Pictures Television is inviting delegates at MIPCOM2016 to an exclusive screening of its highly-anticipated, new period drama series, “The Halcyon.” The global entertainment content market, MIPCOM takes place in Cannes, France, from 17-20 October.
The Halcyon screening will take place at the Palais des Festivals on Sunday 16 October at 6.30pm, and will be open to all delegates. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the producers of the show.
Produced by Left Bank Pictures and commissioned by ITV in the UK, the eight-part drama is set in 1940, and tells the story of a bustling and glamorous five-star hotel at the centre of London society at the start of World War Two. It shows life in the capital through the prism of war, and the impact it has on families, politics, relationships and work across all social strata, set to a soundtrack of the music of the era.
