Written by X Files' Glen Morgan and based on a novel by Michael Marshall Smith, the series, which is about a secret group looking for immortality, stars John Simm and Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino.
Another essential piece of the portfolio is the eighth season of Doctor Who, a production well-known internationally, which takes the time-traveller team to Victorian London, Sherwood Forest in search of Robin Hood, and the Orient Express.
The fiction catalogue is completed by The Honourable Woman, a Drama Republic and Eight Rooks productions for BBC and Sundance TV.
In the documentaries section, BBC Worldwide will present the Discovery Channel and France Televisions' co-production Life Story; the human history series Human Universe, co-produced with Science Channel; and How To Build a Planet, also a Science Channel co-production which explains how a world is created in the Universe.
The BBC will be also bringing to MIPCOM other productions such as Katherine Mills: Mind Games; Rachel Khoo's Kitchen Notebook; Junior Doctors USA; Tumble; and comedies including Alan Carr Chatty Man and Friday Night Dinner.
