SWISS HIGH END TV SERIES
After South America yesterday, we are flying today over to Swiss Alps where we have a series pitch that will also be presented at Conecta Fiction and
Entertainment festival in Spain - WINTER PALACE from Swiss Radio and Television and Lindsay Shapero. The Swiss Alps, 1899. André Morel, an ambitious Swiss hotelier, has a daring vision:
a five star hotel that will stay open throughout the winter season. It’s never been
done before. Can his risky idea survive extreme weather, untrained staff and
demanding guests? This eight part series, inspired by real events, depicts the
birth of White Winter holidays. It combines a lavish period drama with compelling,
character driven stories full of hidden desires, ambition and love, alongside ashes
of modern music for a contemporary twist. Shapero previously wrote Judi Dench's Red Joan.
