Netflix set for new French comedy

Netflix newNetflix is set to launch its next French original comedy, which will be available exclusively to worldwide members in 2018.

The unnamed series is an eight episode romantic comedy set in modern day Paris. It follows a group of friends who rally around their perpetually single girlfriend.

The half-hour series is directed by Noémie Saglio and executive produced by Anne Thomopoulos and François Florentiny. British writer Chris Lang is the creator and he will also serve as executive producer and writer, along with Julien Teisseire.

Saglio said: “I’m very happy to present my vision of French humour on such an innovative platform. Netflix gives creative freedom to writers and directors to express themselves from beginning to end — with this show in particular, the freedom to showcase people in their thirties as realistic and sweet as they are funny.”

Erik Barmack, vice president of international originals at Netflix, said: “This show is a fun and modern romantic story that will bring viewers into the energy of today’s Paris.

The new series continues Netflix’s investment in French content, having already brought in originals such as The Eddy, Osmosis, Marseille and Gad Elmaleh’s stand up comedies.
