GK-tv presents first international screening of “Camelot” series in association with Starz Entertainment

PARIS, Jan. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — 4-7 April 2011, Palais des Festivals, Cannes — After a highly successful launch at MIPCOM 2010, the second edition of the World Premiere TV Screenings aims big again with the international premiere of Irish-Canadian major co-production “Camelot” on the opening evening of MIPTV 2011, Monday 4 April, in Cannes, France.

GK-tv President Craig Cegielski brings the new, eagerly-awaited tale of the legendary King Arthur “Camelot” to Cannes for an exclusive international presentation at MIPTV’s 2011 World Premiere TV Screenings event.

“Camelot” stars Joseph Fiennes (Elizabeth, Shakespeare in Love) and Eva Green (Kingdom of Heaven, Casino Royale) will light up the Cannes MIPTV Premiere. The first two episodes of the GK-tv and Starz Entertainment series will be screened in the Palais des Festival’s Grand Auditorium, followed by an exclusive Q&A with the cast. Immediately following that evening, the stars of “Camelot” will walk the red carpet at MIPTV’s Opening Cocktail Party at the Carlton Hotel.

The MIPTV World Premiere TV Screenings is a premium showcase for leading television and film companies to screen outstanding programmes to the most influential buyers, industry players, and international media from over 100 countries. The international premiere offers the ideal platform to preview, launch and raise awareness for the shows that audiences will be watching in the year to come. The screening of “Camelot” is open to all MIPTV delegates.

“We’re delighted to introduce the ‘Camelot’ TV series to the largest international audience of professionals at MIPTV’s World Premiere Screenings this year,” says Laurine Garaude, Director of Reed MIDEM’s Television Division. “Not only is ‘Camelot’ an exceptional programme in terms of scale and ambition, but it’s also a major co-production, quite fitting this year’s special focus on co-production at MIPTV. Furthermore, it demonstrates a growing trend of premium TV series featuring major movie stars.”

“We are proud to present GK-tv’s first series, ‘Camelot,’ at the MIPTV World Premiere TV Screenings this year,” commented Craig Cegielski. “Our partners at Reed MIDEM have devised an excellent platform for independent studios to launch premium new product.”

    On February 25th Starz will air the first episode of Camelot for promotion. Eva is expected to dominate as Morgana in the premiere. By the way her husband King Lot (James Purefoy) will participate only in the first two episodes
