October 07, 2015
Polish broadcaster TVN is pushing further into online with an investment in five original series. The first series, a Polish version of US comedy Web Therapy, will launch on TVN’s Player.pl service on 21 October. Speaking at the Mipcom TV market in Cannes this morning, TVN executives said the 10 episode series will cost 1 million zlotys ($266 million), a similar budget to one of its traditional linear TV series. Between Q4 this year and Q1 2016, TVN will also debut two reality series, Lip Sync Battle and Start U Up, documentary series My Love Story and drama co-production Cape Town.
