The Honourable Woman is met with acclaim at MipTV ahead of UK TX this Summer

Drama Republic’s first production The Honourable Woman, written and directed by Hugo Blick and starring Maggie Gyllenhaal caused a stir at this year’s MipTV in Cannes, racking up several pre-sales as it approaches a summer TX on BBC Two and the Sundance channel in the US. As well as these UK and US transmissions, the show has also been acquired by Netflix, and sold to HBO Nordic and Canal Plus at this year’s festival with further sales pending.
