Adrian Wootton, chief executive of Film London and British Film Commission, commented: “The initiative represents a snapshot of Film London’s work to boost business, proactively create positive opportunities for our screen industries and sell the capital as a first-class city in which to do business. I hope to see this trip result in some exciting new co-productions.”

“The French public love British series, and after the success of The Returned on Chanel 4 the British public is ready for new discoveries,” added Olivier-René Veillon, CEO of Ile de France Film Commission.

A Tale Of Two Cities is for producers developing projects suitable for a UK-French co-production that would capitalise on the UK tax relief for high-end television drama and the French Tax Rebate for International Production (TRIP).

It is presented by Film London with funding from the Mayor of London and Ile de France Film Commission with funding from Ile de France Region. The event is also supported by The Langham, London, Hôtel Scribe Paris and Eurostar.
