Starz brings "Insomnia" to MIPCOM

The programmes include drama series Insomnia and The White Princess. The former comprises an 8-episode hour-long dramatic action series from executive producer and director Slava N. Jakovleff and executive producer Michael Ohoven, and stars Shaun Sipos, Dylan Everett and Pasha Lychnikoff. It focuses on a game forcing strangers to play with their lives at stake. Twenty contestants must kill or be killed, set against the backdrop of Moscow with all contestants having been injected with a poison – if they fall asleep, they die. This first season is a closed-book story, where the winner is decided in the final episode. In each instalment the game will be played in a different city with different characters. Starz acquired the series for all worldwide rights from Welldone Production.
