IP Studios, a new multi-channel production house from Abu Dhabi, was launched at the recently concluded MIPTV in Cannes. With offices in Abu Dhabi and London, the production house offers a wide array of content including feature films, series, drama, kids entertainment, sports programming and digital content.

Founded by director, producer and media consultant, Mohamed Yehya, IP Studios announced a suite of productions at Cannes, including a big-budget action series called SEVEN, which features Hollywood and Arab stars.

Commenting on the type of content trending these days, Yehya said: “Overall there is a growing appetite within the market for smart, adrenaline induced and action-packed series, the main reason why we chose this subject.

“By bringing together some of the best talent in both acting and production, we are aiming to produce a high-calibre show that adheres to international standards.”

Some of the other content offerings that were showcased at MIPTV include The Jihadi Hunter, a feature film about a decorated English ex-soldier returning from war-torn Syria; The Crimsons, a documentary chronicling the history of Iran from the 16th century; and cartoon series Captain Khalfan.

Following the soft launches at MIPTV, MIPCOM in October will see more announcements from the production house as well as releases of some of the shows and films.
