Music Box Films Checks Into Canal Plus’ ‘Maison Close’

24 January 2014 8:54 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paris– Chicago-based Music Box Films has acquired U.S. and Canadian rights to Mabrouk El Mechri’s “Maison Close,” a provocative period drama series co-produced by Gaul’s Canal Plus.

The North American distributor has picked the first two seasons of the erotic drama series. Set in the 19th century in Paris, “Maison Close” toplines Jemima West, star of “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” as an innocent young woman who gets trapped into an exclusive bordello and meets other women who struggle to regain their independence.

Series was produced by Jacques Ouaniche at Noe Productions International and was a ratings hit on Canal Plus, which commissioned and co-produced it.

The series is not a traditional period drama as El Mechri attempted to give it a modern edge with an eclectic and contempo musical score and a stylized mise-en-scene.

“The perfect mix of style and substance, ‘Maison Close’ offers up »
