Israeli Drama ‘In A Heartbeat’ & Irish Crime Thriller ‘Costigan’ Lead Berlin Co-Pro Lineup

Beta Film

The Berlin Film Festival has revealed eight television projects that are searching for co-production funding as it searches for the next Babylon Berlin.

The organisers will launch the Berlinale Co-Production Market for the fourth time and has invited a slew of producers, commissioning editors, distributors, and other drama series financiers to the Zoo Palast as part of its Drama Series Days event between February 19 – 21.

This comes after projects including Sky Atlantic’s German period drama Babylon Berlin, created by Tom Tykwer, and Norwegian drama Valkyrien, created by Erik Richter Strand, that launched at the co-pro market.

This year’s projects include In A Heartbeat, the latest project from Israeli writers Shani Melamed Nitzan and Gaya Wildman, and Irish crime series Costigan.
