Some cool news out of France: Deadline International Editor Nancy Tartaglione will moderate a panel featuring Amy Poehler and the stars/creators of Comedy Central’s “Broad City” at the Mip-TV conference in Cannes, France.
If you happen to be hanging around in the south of France in early April, maybe you can, you know, drop by and say hi to the Divine Ms. T., who does a weekly podcast with me for Deadline called “Global Showbiz Watch.”
(Go here to listen to the latest episode, where Nancy previews Mip-TV: http://www.deadline.com/2014/03/global-showbiz-watch-29-the-mip-tv-preview-podcast/).
If you go, though, no heckling allowed. She’s too nice, and Poehler will get you for doing it.
Given the participants, this should be a most interesting and entertaining panel about taking an online property and translating it to traditional TV (and given the setting, to international TV syndication markets).
Here’s the top of the release that Comedy Central put out:
Executive producer Amy Poehler to join the creators, writers, exec producers & stars of Comedy Central’s brand new series ‘Broad City’ at MIPTV 2014
Golden Globe award winner Amy Poehler to be joined by Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer (‘Broad City’), Kent Alterman, President, Content Development & Original Programming, Comedy Central and Caroline Beaton, SVP, International Programme Sales, Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) to explore the series’ success and new opportunities created by the web impacting today’s comedy development process for TV.

Ten years after Mel Gibson made “The Passion of the Christ” the biggest ever independent film, a journalist who covered him argues it’s time for Hollywood to bring the former superstar in from the cold.
His vicious anti-Semitic and misogynist comments in some heavily publicized altercations built up strong revulsion in the community, but now, writes Allison Hope Weiner for Deadline, it’s time to end the effective blacklist that’s kept him from any mainstream projects.
What do you think? Should Gibson be allowed back in to making mainstream projects?
