***CREDITS NOT CONTRACTUAL***
Set in the year 2510, The Lost Future is a post-apocalyptic story that takes place within the exotic and dangerous world of jungles and trackless forests - jungles that have reclaimed the world as we know it today. An isolated band of hunters fights for survival in a landscape overrun by terrible beasts and by the specter of a mysterious and deadly illness.
The Lost Future is the first of three productions for TANDEM’s newly-created Action Pack(ed) genre label, featuring event action/adventure programming for the international market.
“The Lost Future is the ideal first title of our new Action Pack(ed) label”, says Jonas Bauer. “It’s an action/adventure with an exciting and surprising story that unfolds in many layers. Just when the audience thinks they know what’s happening, they’ll be thrown for a loop. We are thrilled to have RTL Television and SyFy Channel as our commissioning broadcast partners”.
TANDEM COMMUNICATIONS is located in Munich, Germany and was started in 1999 by Rola Bauer and Tim Halkin. In 2007 Jonas Bauer became a partner in the company and in 2009 Malisa Scott became a partner and Chief Operating Officer. From the beginning, their strategy was to build a vertically-integrated media company whose core business is international production and worldwide distribution. From the ground-breaking series The Pillars of the Earth, now in post-production, to the Emmy® Award winner Frank Herbert’s Dune to the Emmy® nominated Dragons’ World to the Golden Globe® nominated The Company to the Nora Roberts Franchise, TANDEM continues to develop, produce and distribute high-quality projects.
TANDEM produced the DIVA Award-winning Ring of the Nibelungs and garnered excellent ratings on the SyFy Channel in the U.S., as well as internationally for its event movie, Lost City Raiders. Impact premiered successfully in the U.S. on ABC Network.
In 2009, TANDEM launched internationally the new Patricia Cornwell movie franchise with At Risk and The Front, based on her worldwide bestselling crime novels.
