Series Mania: ‘Section Zero,’ ‘Frozen Dead,’ ’Contact’ Underscore France’s New TV Ambitions

Paris – Three high-profile Gallic series – “Section Zero,” “The Frozen Dead” and “Contact” – feature at Coming Next From France, a Series Mania/Tvfi showcase which captures the French TV in evolution.

French broadcasters still have to think of their home markets. Of the six-scripted dramas, three are procedurals made in large part for France, where murder mysteries have a long tradition. All, however, show an ambition to also sell outside their country of origin, while others capture a burgeoning attempt at diversification of France’s scripted-tv offer.

Produced by the Luc Besson-owned EuropaCorp TV’s Bad Company, and a Canal Plus original series co-financed by Studiocanal, which sells world rights, and Belgium’s UMedia, tapping into Belgian tax breaks, “Section Zero” is budgeted at €2 million ($2.3 million) an episode, per Edouard de Vesinne.

NBC Orders Taken TV Show To Series

Writer-director-producer Luc Besson has a habit of creating popular cinematic characters that migrate to television. In 1997, La Femme Nikita brought the premise of his 1990 film Nikita to the small screen (and again, with Nikita in 2010), while 2012 saw the television arrival of Transporter: The Series. The latest to join this elite club is the character of Bryan Mills from the Taken franchise, as NBC have just ordered Besson’s latest TV pitch straight to series.

The Taken movie franchise spans three films, and gave the career of Liam Neeson a new lease of life in the action genre. Written by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, it told the story of a former CIA operative who must re-engage his training in order to retrieve his kidnapped daughter. Thanks to Neeson’s towering display of an unflinching passion for revenge, the movies quickly became iconic, to the extent that the main character

High-End Drama Powers France to All-Time TV Export Record

Biarritz. France – The U.S. is getting the French TV touch. Pre-sales on four flagship French fiction series –“Transporter: the Series,” “Panthers,” “Versailles” and ”Taxi Brooklyn” – to the U.S. or beyond helped power up Gallic TV exports to an all-time record last year of €210.3 million ($231.3 million).

A muscular 17.1% up on 2013, figure reps the fifth year of consecutive growth for French TV programs and is near 30% up on international French TV levels in pre-crisis years of 2005-08, TV France International and French agency Cnc announced Tuesday at Tvfi’s annual Biarritz Rendez-Vous. Drama pre-sales soared an extraordinary 449% year-on-year in 2014.

If any figures were needed to demonstrate that it is not only the U.S. that is benefitting from a fiction feeding frenzy, Tuesday’s Gallic stats announcement was conclusive.

“There’s been a crisis but exports have really picked up,” said Mathieu Bejot, Tvfi head.
