Stars of the big screen and lots from the little screen turned out en masse for the 56th Monte Carlo TV Festival.
During five days, Monaco surfed a TV wave. It was an occasion to meet actors from an array of global television series, including some of the classics. While TV watching habits are changing, series are becoming more and more popular. So what’s the view from within the industry? Actor and director Thomas Gibson says TV is luring top talent.
“It’s true that there is definitely a sort of renaissance of interesting television and I think it’s attracting some of the best writing, and the fact that the format has been adapted and you can take a season of a serie and make four episodes or eight or 12. We are still doing the old model which is 22 or 24, so it’s a factory.”
