The independent French producer and distributor will sell the show internationally excluding Belgium and France where the series producer, Ella Prods, retains the rights.
The ten-part show was commissioned by Belgian broadcaster RTBF.
The series follows an investigation into the death of a professional footballer. RTBF has ordered a second season, which is currently in development.
Lionel Uzan, managing director and co-founder, Federation, said: “The Break is a riveting crime series, and a great title to add to our growing catalogue.
“This acquisition marks our continued desire to acquire high-end productions from a broad range of international producers and showcase the incredible talent coming out of European territories.”
Federation is building a slate of European drama. The Break will join French series The Bureau and Scandi show Bordertown in its drama line-up.
