Apple TV+ has expanded its European originals with its first Anglo-French drama, which has been written by Spiral’s Virginie Brac.
Liaison is being co-produced by Newen-owned Ringside Studios and Leonis Productions, with Stephen Hopkins (24) attached to direct.
Brac is writing, while the cast includes Black Swan’s Vincent Cassel, Eva Green (Proxima) and Ozark’s Peter Mullan.
The story involves “espionage and political intrigue”, with Apple describing the show as a “high-stakes, contemporary thriller exploring how the mistakes of our past have the potential to destroy our future.”
It joins other European-originating shows such as Spanish- and English-language half-hour comedy series Acapulco, espionage thriller Slow Horses.
