Globo's Brazilian prison drama Jailers on Sunday took the top prize at the sophomore edition of MIPTV's MIPDrama Screenings competition.
The jury, presided over by The X-Files and The Man in the High Castle creator Frank Spotnitz, awarded Germany's Babylon Berlin the Work in Progress honor.
Spotnitz was joined on the jury by The Bridge executive producer Lars Blomgren, Homeland executive producer Ran Tellem, Spiral screenwriter Virginie Brac and Versailles and Yves Saint Laurent director Jalil Lespert to award prizes for the best international dramas.
The Screenings Buyers Coup de Coeur Award went to Clique, a young adult series set amongst Edinburgh's university elite.
French contemporary sci-fi series Missions took home the TV Critics' best Full Episode award. The show follows a group of astronauts as they try to make their way back to Earth from Mars in an alternative timeline.
Among the competitors in the Full Episodes category were: BBC Three's Clique, Channel 4's Gap Year and ITV's Fearless, all from the U.K.; Brazil's Globo presented Jailers, an intense prison drama; Russia offered mystery series The Territory; and Sweden's Veni Vid Vici rounded out the selection.
Babylon Berlin and Bad Banks competed in the Works in Progress category alongside Canada's Bad Blood, Russia's Better Than Us and Denmark's Ride Upon the Storm, which took home the second audience award.
The second year of MIPDrama Screenings comes as the city of Cannes is prepared to launch a full-fledged festival for series next year that will run alongside the TV industry confab.
Plans for the festival's launch in 2018 are expected to be unveiled Monday afternoon during a press conference with former culture minister Fleur Pellerin and Cannes Mayor David Lisnard.
