In the near future, society is regulated by an citizen score determining status, job and fate. ARCADIA draws a stark picture of a dystopian setting that isn't too far removed from our current situations.

Originating from Belgian showrunner-led production company jonydepony and co-produced by VRT, WDR and SWR as a quasi-forerunner to the co-production initiative, ARCADIA exemplifies the opportunities for ambitious European projects. In the vein of genre projects that rarely get greenlit in Germany, the team-up with partners from Belgium and Netherlands spotlights the strengths of European cooperation.

Producer and commissioning editors explain how the project originated and how the creative vision was maintained with a number of partners and stakeholders involved.
