Paris — Rene Bastian’s New York-based Belladonna Productions, producer of Michael Haneke’s “Funny Games Us” and Abel Ferrara’s “Welcome to New York,” is teaming with Germany’s Zdf Enterprises, the expanding commercial arm of the German broadcast network, to develop “Genesis,” an English-language sci-fi thriller.

“Genesis” is created by Narina Jabari, a young Canadian scientist-turned-screenwriter. Zdfe is handling sales rights to the series.

A film company with a distinguished pedigree, Belladonna moved into TV series production with the Sundance Channel-aired “Hap & Leonard,” now in its second season, executive produced by Belladonna principal Linda Moran. For Zdfe, “Genesis” represents one of its earliest series in English and linkup with a U.S. production company as Zdfe acquires world sales rights not only to Zdf drama but third-party productions drawn from Europe and beyond.

“Genesis” also joins a fast-growing cannon of sci-fi drama – think “Stranger Things,” “Westworld,” “Humans” – as the genre returns towards the mainstream, diversifies »
