The Politician's Husband To Launch At MIPCOM 2012

Mentorn International’s new drama, The Politician’s Husband, starring David Tennant and Emily Watson, will be one of the must-see properties at MIPCOM 2012 next month.

The production company will include the three part drama among the titles that Managing Director David Leach and sales executives are presenting to the international market at the event that takes place in Cannes from 8th – 11th October. This follows the news that BBC Worldwide will also be offering The Spies Of Warsaw to international broadcasters.

Mentorn International on The Politician’s Husband
The Politician's Husband is a drama exploring what happens in a political marriage when the wife becomes more successful than her husband.
Aiden Hoynes, a senior Cabinet Minister, is happily married to Freya, a junior Minister who has consistently put her own career ambitions on hold for the sake of Aiden's career and their family.
When Aiden's career path to the top echelons comes to an abrupt halt, the power balance within his marriage is irrevocably shifted as he witnesses his wife's political career soar.
In his desperation to cling to power, Aiden risks destroying everything he holds most dear.

The drama is written by Paula Milne and directed by Simon Cellan Jones, and will be seen on BBC Two early next year.

MIPCOM, held every year in Cannes, is the world's leading content market for creating, co-producing, buying, selling, financing and distributing entertainment across all platforms. It is attended by worldwide entertainment distributors who aim to launch and sell programmes and expand them to new platforms.

Mentorn also ran a small ad for The Politician’s Husband in some press and we have a scan of the promo shot featuring David Tennant and Emily Watson. We’ll bring you a better quality copy as soon as we can, but in the meantime:
