As we blogged last week, BBC America has joined the list of co-producers – BBC Worldwide / ARTE France /Apple Film for TV Poland – for the new mini-series The Spies of Warsaw starring David Tennant and Janet Montgomery.
What has been interesting is the amount of media interest generated by this announcement has generated overseas. The list includes Variety, Deadline Hollywood, Hollywood Report, MTV Geek News and slew of major US papers. We are hoping this is an indication of great success for all involved.
Here is a sample of the articles.
