Hi everyone, we found a small interview with Liz, Goran, Frank and Rola from MIPTV and more pictures from the event. Enjoy!
Studiocanal – backed producer Tandem Communications in Cannes with series three of Crossing Lines, a fast-paced thriller based around a fictional European police unit tackling cross-border crime. The new series is penned by Frank Spotnitz and features two new cast members: Goran Visnjic (ER) and Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost).
Visnjic told MIPTV News: “It was really appealing for to work with Frank and (Tandem president) Rola Bauer. It was also an opportunity to work alongside the great Donald Sutherland, who plays Michel Dorn of the International Criminal Court in all three series.”
Mitchell’s work to date has mostly been based in the US. But the prospect of filming in Europe for four months didn’t worry her: “It was really intriguing to work in so many news places. I was also excited by the fact that my character hadn’t been fully developed when I first spoke to Rola and Frank. That was an opportunity for us to develop her beyond broad strokes.”
Spotnitz was not involved in the first two series. Explaining his decision to write series three, he said: “There are so many exciting stories to be told about crime in Europe, so it’s been a great project to work on.”
Bauer said Sony’s AXN and Sat1 were continuing to back the show. She added: “We are moving into a new era with Crossing Lines and are elated to have Goran and Elizabeth. And it was great to involve someone of Frank’s calibre.”
