8 June 2016 1:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Driving hard to build its TV content business, Studiocanal, owned by Vivendi’s Canal Plus Group, has initiated international sales on three of its latest TV series: Harlan Coben’s “The Five,” (pictured) futuristic thriller “Section Zero” from Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp TV, and political drama “Baron Noir,” which, like “Section Zero,” is a Canal Plus Original Series.

In the series’ biggest deal to date outside Europe, Australian broadcast network Sbs has acquired all three titles.

Produced for the U.K.’s Sky 1 by Nicola Shindler’s London-based Red Production Company (“Happy Valley”), “The Five” has also been picked up by the Prime network in New Zealand, Yes Dbs in Israel and Npo in the Netherlands. It world-premiered on Sky 1 on April 15, and has aired on France’s Canal Plus.

A Studiocanal sale to Sbs Australia was always on the cards. “Australians love high-quality drama series, and we’re committed »

Paris — Perched high up in his towering armchair, the excitable Seriesmaniac – Series Mania’s new festival trophy, as created by Parisian design studio Hartland Villa – certainly seemed to have his extremely wide eyes on shows from all over the globe.

Voted for by an eclectic jury led by “The Sopranos” showrunner David Chase and comprising Israeli actress Yaël Abecassis, Anglo-Irish-French actress Amira Casar, British screenwriter Tony Grisoni and French screenwriter Fanny Herrero, Series Mania’s top Grand Prix went to gritty crime series “El Marginal” from Argentina, created by Sebastian Ortega and produced by Underground Producciones, in which an ex-cop goes undercover at a California jail to infiltrate a gang that was responsible for the kidnapping of the daughter of a senior judge.

“El Marginal’s” top Series Mania adds to the statute trove of Underground, the company behind some of Telefe’s biggest critical and ratings hits, such as »

Series Mania: ‘Midnight Sun’ World Premieres in Paris to Warm Applause

19 April 2016 2:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paris: Taking control of Mediaset’s pay-tv operation on April 8, France’s Vivendi is not just looking to Southern Europe for growth. “Midnight Sun,” the first fruit of Vivendi-owned Canal Plus’ drive into Scandinavian co-production, world premiered Tuesday evening at Series Mania, a fast-building Paris TV fest.

Backed by Canal Plus and Svt, in what is billed as the first France-Sweden co-production, and produced by Lagardère Studios’ Paris-based Atlantique Productions and Stockholm’s Nice Drama, part of the Modern Times Group, it played to hearty and heartfelt applause at the end of its first two episodes at a jam-packed Series Mania world premiere screening.

That is more than a passing detail. One large question raised by Vivendi’s buy-up of Mediaset Premium, the Italian broadcaster’s pay TV operation – or indeed Sky’s integration of its pay TV operations in the U.K., Germany and Italy – is if Canal Plus »

Goteborg: Nordic Noir Powers On

7 February 2016 1:24 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Goteborg — At TV Drama Vision, the Göteborg International Film Festival’s 10th seminar on TV drama, Swedish directors Björn Stein and Måns Mårlind presented the $10.9 million, eight hour series, “Midnight Sun,” which is based on an original idea by Swedish writer-producer Henrik Jansson-Schweizer and Swedish-French producer Patrick Nebout.

Starring French actress Leïla Bekhti (”The Prophet”) and Swedish actor Gustaf Hammersten, the Nice Drama-Atlantique Productions serial follows a French police officer (Bekti), who is dispatched to Sweden to investigate the brital murder of a French citizen in Kiruna, in Sweden’s Arctic region, in collaboration with a Swedish prosecutor of Sami origin. More killing starts to happen – the victims seemingly have nothing in common, except they are eliminated in a well-planned and vicious manner.

“It is interesting, but most Scandinavian broadcasters made Nordic Noir for several years, before we were aware it was a wave,” said TV drama chief Ivar Køhn, »
