Global Showbiz Watch ep 24In this week’s podcast, Deadline International Editor Nancy Tartaglione reports from the Berlin Film Festival opening today, previewing the Berlinale with host David Bloom. They also take a look at China’s new plan to crack down on box-office fraud and what it means for Hollywood’s products in the No. 2 film market; detail the UK’s big jump in film production from overseas; and plumb the surprising overlap of real-world political scandal and fictional drama that made the Cesar Award nomination announcements far more titillating than usual.
