Planet Norfolk - a ten part reality series about the county, produced by a tiny local team, has claimed a major breakthrough, being selected by a major international distribution company and showcased at the £2000 a ticket event.
Series Director Nik Coleman:
"We're thrilled to have Planet Norfolk in the lineup for MiP - it's an incredible coup for us, and repays the faith that so many local companies have had in us, backing the series. We're still filming so its even more remarkable that a major distributor has taken an option at this stage. It's a great chance for Norfolk folks to prove we're not just carrot crunchers and we don't all have six toes!"
The show has already gained a transmission slot for 2013 on a SKY multiplex Channel - but the Producers are hoping to catch the eye of a major terrestrial broadcaster at the show.
Businesses and individuals featured in the show so far are drawn from Norwich, Diss, Long Stratton, Gorleston, Dereham, North Norfolk, Gt Plumstead, Downham Market, Wells, Eye and of course, the Producers in downtown Forncett St Mary!

2012. The Olympics. London. Across the world millions watched every step of the way.
Not so in Norfolk. (It's a County. In England. Nearer to Holland than London!). They were a bit too busy with the "Dwile Flonking" to be watching the Olympics on telly.
They "do different".
Plus, it might come on to rain. Then they’ll be "lolloping along" down the pub to see if that "slummocking great mawther" is in there.
Telly programmes? They "craze" Norfolk folks. So they've made ten of our their own, all about "Naarfuk".
They like those London folks, especially when they bring their wallets on holiday, and the other tourists, but they're not as stupid as they're painted.
No it's not another language. The UK's most laughed at and derided county is striking back. During 2012 our film crews have trawled the county looking for weird and unusual characters, but also the bright young things and savvy entrepreneurs, at the heart of a region that thinks it's in a galaxy of its own.
A frequently hilarious, but also touching and fascinating, wholly unscripted reality series that lays bare the lives loves and businesses of some of the stand out residents of the much maligned county of Norfolk, England. Also includes dramatic flight sequences with a selection of WW2 fighters!
Narrated in a tongue in cheek style this engaging and compelling series brings back a healthy dose of genuine reality... to reality TV.
