The premiere episodes of new Flemish TV series Clan, Deadline 14/10 and The Spiral together gathered an impressive total of 2.3 million viewers in Flanders. Never before have local broadcasters committed this strongly to original indigenous quality fiction. The increase in domestic TV production is a result of the new Media fund which also supported upcoming TV series such as Quiz Me Quick, Salamander and HBO/BBC’s Parade’s End.
