Robert Gillings Productions went up in arms at MipTV 2023 Cannes. RGP showed off their new TV series Paper Empire at the events market for the whole world to see in one of the world’s most fantastic city.

Paper Empire follows crypto into its dark universe. Laurence Fintch, played by Robert Davi, wants to be the planet’s savior and will stop at nothing till he sits on this throne. However, he soon learns that he is the centerpiece of an international conspiracy and that his digital technology has been unleashed. His attempt to corner the world banks spirals out of control, bringing forth a Financial Armageddon.

At Annex Beach in Cannes, the flashy event celebrating Paper Empire was a brilliant sight. Magnificent marquee letters spelled out the show’s name in the sand, with the backdrop of the sea and stars. The trailer played on the big screens, and the DJ played a combination of hits and original music from the show. Gold Bitcoin coins filled jars around the room, and shiny gold nuggets decorated the tables, giving the event an even more abundant feeling. A dramatic red carpet led the celebrity cast and guests down the stairs of the entrance to a grand red carpet where the press had gathered to capture the cast celebrating the show.

The show’s creator, director, and star, Robert Gillings, was surrounded by his supportive cast, who had come to Cannes from Los Angeles, Tampa, and Italy to be there with him as Paper Empire debuted at the MipTV 2023 market. Robert Gillings Productions set up its booth at the Palais des Festivals, Cannes, where it welcomed buyers and press to look at the show’s trailer and discuss with the show’s producer, William Heming, the inner workings of the show and some sales.

The women on the cast stunned the guests and cameras, standing tall in all-black dresses with gold, diamond, and eye-catching ruby gemstone accessories. The women successfully walked across the beautiful Annex Beach, very impressively, might we add, in six-inch Valentinos and Louboutins. The men dazzled their guests as well in carefully tailored suits that you couldn’t take your eyes off of.

The international cast was closer than ever on the red carpet, hand-in-hand helping each other across the beach decks for photo opportunities. The cast in attendance included Robert Davi (The Goonies, License To Kill, Die Hard), Denise Richards (Wild Things, The Bold and The Beautiful, The World Is Not Enough), Bleona Qereti (Albanian singer and award-winning recording artist), and Carol Alt (Vogue and Sports-Illustrated supermodel and author). Also In tow was the shows producer, William Heming, and the songwriting duo Inbal Samuel Litvak and Yuval Bilgorai.

In his speech, Robert Gillings thanked each cast member in turn, elaborating on their fabulous filmographies and highlighting their individual accomplishments and contributions to the TV show. From Dubai to Sweden, guests were elated to be a part of the moment and Paper Empire’s history.

The show follows Laurence Fintch, who wants to be the world’s financial savior. However, in his attempt to create the only dominant cryptocurrency, he developed an algorithm that inadvertently opened a digital black hole called “digital limbo.” Eventually, his attempt to merge all currencies and corner the world banks spiraled out of control bringing forth a Financial Armageddon.

After his arrest, his technology is being investigated by the CIA and the FBI, who uncovers a web of deceit and corruption far beyond his actions.

With the help of his inequitable team, banker Damon Moore (Wesley Snipes), and behind-the-scenes business and life partner Bentley (Denise Richards). Even in jail, Laurence remains the mastermind behind the global financial conspiracy. However, as the investigation unfolds, the digital breadcrumbs lead to Swiss Banker Oliver London (Kelsey Grammer). In addition, Laurence discovers that he has been set up by his longtime friend and firm accountant Saul Burnstein (Steve Guttenberg), who harbors his own agenda.

Meantime influential individuals within organized crime networks seek to use his technology for their nefarious purposes. With his reputation in tatters and his company collapsed, Laurence must navigate a dangerous world of high-stakes finance and cutthroat politics to conquer all that get in his way. When the stakes get higher and the danger more intense, Laurence must make difficult choices and take bold actions to stay one step ahead of his many enemies. With twists and turns at every corner, Paper Empire is a thrilling universal roller coaster ride that keeps audiences on the edge of their seats until the end.

Undoubtedly, the world’s media and the world of Television were focused on Paper Empire, and we look forward to seeing where the show eventually chooses to land. Whatever the distribution, Paper Empire will surely be a roaring success and give viewers a wild ride through the world of Cryptocurrency and its sexy dark underground action.
