Just as French fiction reaches a new high with two international Emmy noms, the Ile de France Commission is joining forces with the French embassy in Los Angeles to bow Direct To Series, a two-day confab showcasing “la creme de la creme” of original Gallic skeins.
The initiative was unveiled on Tuesday at Mipcom, during a press luncheon hosted at the French Club, a new networking lounge located off of the Palais.
Set to take place in the run-up to the American Film Market, on Nov. 1-2 at the Pacific Design Center, Direct To Series will present “Candice Renoir,” produced by Boxer de Lune; “The Returned,” produced by Haut et Court ; period epic “Odysseus,” produced by Making Prod and GMT Prods.; “No Limit,” produced by EuropaCorp TV; “The Church Men,” produced by Arte France and Zadig Prods.; “Les Hommes de l’ombre,” produced by Macondo and Tetra Media Fiction; “Un Village Francais,” produced by Tetra Media Fiction. “The Tunnel,” co-produced by Canal Plus, SkyAtlantic HD, Shine France Films and Kudos, might also be added to the lineup.
