This new report has just been published by the European Audiovisual Observatory, part of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg. Its publication coincides with the French Series Mania Festival in Lille, where report author, Gilles Fontaine, the Observatory’s Head of Department for Market Information, will present his findings on 2 and 3 May. The data was collected for 2015 and 2016 and covers 102 different services: 52 private channels, 45 public channels and 5 SVOD services.

l.  Formats and length

The EU produces mostly short formats, including a significant number of TV films: A total of 44% of all fiction titles are TV films (1 or 2 episodes), and 90% of all fiction titles produced have 26 episodes or fewer produced per year.

lll.  Top five series producing countries in Europe

Germany is, by far, the leading country for production of TV fiction in the EU, in terms both of number of titles and number of hours. Germany produces 2156 hours of TV fiction a year. Next in line are Spain, Portugal, Britain and France.

lV.  The role of public and private broadcasters

Public broadcasters are involved in the production of the vast majority (73%) of TV fiction titles. However, private audiovisual groups[1], generally speaking, tend to focus their investments on a more limited number of long-running projects. Private broadcasters therefore account for 56% of the number of hours produced, vs. 44% for public broadcasters.
