Reviews of the television dramas:
"While reading coverage of the festival, I was interested to see that some international TV dramas were premiered as part of the programme, and that a number of these had a pronounced crime/thriller/spying dimension. 
Alessandra Stanley’s excellent article in the New York Times provides a good overview, and also discusses how such series are beginning to be picked up in the States (and not always to be remade in English either), which is a very good sign." ~~ Mrs. Peabody Investigates

"The Berlinale always has been a seller's market, and as competition for product grows fiercer, U.S. presales are rising. "There are only a few English-language films in the official program each year, and many domestic buyers are in town with little else to distract them," says Micah Green,co-head of CAA's film-finance group.
..."It can be easier to capture a distributor's attention in Berlin," says Green. "At Sundance, Toronto and Cannes, you are competing with more movies. Berlin has a shorter supply." ~~ The Hollywood Reporter
