    A leading group of London-based international distributors – namely All3Media International, Banijay Rights, eOne, Fremantle and ITV Studios – today announced they are working together again to bring back the highly-successful London TV Screenings from 28 February – 4 March 2022.

    Following an inaugural virtual event earlier this year, the major distributors will band together for a second year in a row to offer partners a series of in-person events from the individual companies in Spring 2022, packed with exclusive content, bespoke sessions and chances to connect with world-class programme-makers.

    A London TV Screenings spokesperson said: “The London TV Screenings are back having already carved out a significant reputation as a key destination for buyers worldwide.

    “It makes perfect sense that we can work collaboratively to curate quality shows and avoid in-person screening conflicts to showcase all the latest scripted, non-scripted and formats programmes.

    “We very much expect more distributors to join too and look forward to coming together to present the very best these distributors have to offer at a number of venues, in the heart of the capital, and to a wider digital audience. We’ve no doubt this evolving London TV Screenings week will provide an unforgettable experience for buyers across the globe.”
