International Scripted Buyers

BANFF's Buyers Series is an in-depth examination of what major international content buyers are looking for to fill their programming blocks in the coming year. Our scripted deep-dive will feature leading comedy and drama commissioners from broadcast networks, cable channels, and digital platforms will share the different strategies they utilize when taking pitches for new programming. You'll find out exactly what types of shows buyers are seeking out, what trends have been overdone, and how to find the right home for your content.
