I’m glad to share this with you:
PARIS — Wild Bunch TV has scored worldwide sales on “Medici: Masters of Florence,” Frank Spotnitz and Nicholas Meyer’s upscale historical drama series starring Dustin Hoffman and Richard Madden (“Game of Thrones”).
“Medici,” directed by Sergio Mimica-Gezzan (“The Pillars of the Earth”) and produced by Lux Vide (“War and Peace”) in collaboration with Big Light Productions and Wild Bunch, has pre-sold to Sky (Germany), SBS (Australia), eOne (New Zealand), Sony Pictures Television (Latin America), DBS (Israel), VRT (Belgium), Canal Plus (Poland), LRT (Lithuania), RTV (Slovenia), RTVS (Slovakia), Canal Plus Overseas (French Speaking Africa), Hulu (Japan), Georgian Public ￼￼1 Broadcast (Georgia), and BTV (Bulgaria), among others.
