TIFF tunes in to Primetime for its second year, tapping five high-quality television premieres from countries including the United Kingdom, South Africa, Kenya, the United States, the Czech Republic, and Canada.

The Primetime programme channels the best international television fit for the silver screen, focusing on powerful, small-screen storytelling that pushes the boundaries of original scripted series and episodic programming. The 2016 lineup showcases works created by Charlie Brooker, Jill Soloway, Jim Chuchu, Štěpán Hulík, and Matt Johnson and Jay McCarrol. The programme includes Q&A sessions with show creators following the screenings.
