With short online formats enjoying a surge in popularity, especially with younger audiences, the MIPTV Digital Short Form Series Pitch sets out to find the best creative talent and to provide a unique opportunity for creators to meet key international decision-makers looking for innovative content. This inaugural event is poised to become a unique, must-attend marketplace for the digital short form content ecosystem. Time to pitch for of our six selected finalists!

A New Breed
A New Breed is a sci-fi take on the Frankenstein myth, with 3-D bio-printing, artificial intelligence, and genetic engineering as the technologies exploited by a modern day “mad scientist” to give life to a new breed of human.
In an underground lab at an undisclosed location, the first artificial humanoid, named JANUS, becomes self-aware. After a promising start, Janus rejects the commands of his creators and attempts to escape from the facility.
Presented by: Trevor Sands, Writer/Director/Producer, Rocket Entertainment, USA

Caught in the Web
Set inside the Internet, Caught in the Web is a behind-the-screens comedy that explores the inner workings of the World Wide Web through the eyes of Finn, a second-rate search engine worker trying to make a name for himself in the shadow of tech powerhouse, Doodle.

From the creative minds of the YouTube sensation PistolShrimps (Stian Hafstad and Christer Larsen), Caught In the Web is a satirical web comedy that puts a spotlight on our internet usage, and explores what it means to be a human in the 21st century.
Presented by: Stian Hafstad, Writer/Director, Flimmer Film, USA

En Voiture Simone
En Voiture Simone is a digital series about Simone and Raoul a glamorous french couple. They argue, they cheat, they love each other but most of all they can travel back and forth in time. En Voiture Simone is a comedy that plays on anachronism and very sharp dialogues.

Lauriane Gilliéron (Miss "George Clooney is inside » in the famous Nespresso TVC, Miss Switzerland in 2005…) is playing Simone Nicky Naudé (Bourne Identity, Hitman…) is playing Raoul.

En Voiture Simone is inspired by a blog that has won the Golden Blog Awards in 2013. 3 pilot episodes of En Voiture Simone were produced, and its trailer was selected at the « spotlight on trailer » during the famous Série Séries Festival 2016. The series is written by Frank Pelé, produced by RR3 FILMS and directed by Nicolas Fogliarini.
Presented by: Nicolas Fogliarini, Producer/Director, RR3 FILMS, France

Les Princes
Tom and Sami, born and raised true Parisians, try to escape the harsh realities of the city and adulthood by setting up a concept-store while enjoying their lives in one of the greatest cities in the world. Les Princes follows the assorted humiliations, disasters and rare triumphs on their very uncertain path to success.

Les Princes offers an original and present-day take on Paris and its multicultural dwellers, far away from the usual city clichés. Through Tom and Sami’s family troubles, romances, fights, laughs, tears and surprises, the series paints a unique generational portrait of young Parisians full of joy and humour.
Presented by: Mathieu Van de Velde, Producer, Black Sheep Films, France

Must Be Karma
‘Must Be Karma’ is a german webseries concept in between sitcom and soap. In season 1 Karma (33) gets fired. Her reputation is gone for now, just like her dreams to be a journalist and TV host. And so we start to follow the unsuccessful blogger’s odd odyssey of self-discovery, pursuing happiness, love and the question - who the hell am I? MBK portraits quirky Karma in today’s digital world with tempo and a colorful style, aiming at a universal conflict these days: being raised believing you can reach anything without greater effort and the crash with a tougher reality.
Presented by: Dirk Rosenloecher, Director, Producer, Dirk Rosenloecher Media Service / diro.tv, Germany

Patricia Moore 
The Moore’s, a family of cannibals, travel the Australian outback in a customized bus they call home. Town to town they drive, running from Teo Lorn, an ancient cult they’ve escaped from. After being ambushed by a cult member, the family is forced to stay in an idyllic lakeside town to repair their home.

As hunger strikes, daughter Patricia, 16, goes hunting and meets local boy Toby who ignites her desire to live a normal teenage life. As her love for Toby grows, Patricia is challenged by the family’s number one rule - Never fall in love with the ‘food’.
Presented by: Brian Cobb, Creative Producer, Cobbstar Productions, Australia
