Starlings Television’s Alexander the Great Series to Be Shot in Greece

LOS ANGELES – Starlings Entertainment’s Television division has several upcoming projects in the works, including a series about Alexander the Great to be co-produced with Greece’s Antenna Group and shot in Greece, Deadline reported on January 12.

“Two years after the launch of Starlings Television, Starlings Entertainment’s TV division led by Chris Philip saw its first two series, Pandora on the CW and Departure on Peacock in the U.S., both go to a second season,” Deadline reported, noting that “Starlings TV has two high-profile series projects in advanced stages of development, Alexander the Great, a collaboration with Ben Silverman/Propagate, whose pilot is being written by Vikings and The Tudors creator Michael Hirst; and a Romanovs spy thriller Red Winter, written by Stephen Kronish (24, The Kennedys).”

“Alexander the Great will be shot in Greece with Greece’s Antenna Group as co-producer,” Deadline reported, adding that “G5 Fiction and ZDF Enterprises also are involved in the project, which reunites Silverman and Hirst following their collaboration on The Tudors.”

Philip, “a former longtime distribution executive,” spoke with Deadline about “how the indie startup is navigating the challenging TV landscape, from working with streamers who take a project’s all worldwide rights to selling to a myriad of local broadcasters around the globe.”

Philip told Deadline, “The strategy is to, of course, do what everyone else is doing by packaging the best possible package and trying to sell to the U.S. networks, and whatever the deals look like depends on who we go with, whether it’s a global deal with a streamer or if it’s the U.S. and then distribution takes it, but there is another model that I’ve always stuck to it, and it’s piecing together everything and making (the project) anyway, not relying on any one voice or company to decide our fate on something we worked so hard on over the development process.”

At press time, further details concerning the production and the eventual broadcast dates of the Alexander the Great series had yet to be released.
