Global streamer Starzplay has partnered with French broadcaster TF1 on the upcoming anthology series A French Case.
The show, which is being produced by Cheyenne Federation, will focus on the tragic murder of four-year-old Grégory Villemin, who was abducted from his home in Lépanges-sur-Vologne in 1984.
The series has been created by Jérémie Guez and Alexandre Smia, written by Jérémie Guez and Alexandre Smia, with the collaboration of Trân-Minh Nam. Christophe Lamotte (The First Forgotten) directs, with Federation Entertainment handling global sales.
The deal will allow Starzplay to offer the series to subscribers in a second window beginning 14 days after the last episode airs on TF1 in France, Belgium, Luxembourg and French & German-speaking Switzerland. It will be available to subscribers in Germany, Spain and the Netherlands one day later.
“It’s been over two years since we brought our streaming service into France and since then we have watched Starzplay grow in this market with fantastic partners by our side,” said Superna Kalle, president of international networks for Starz, who unveiled the deal at SeriesMania in Lille.
The show joins a raft of upcoming projects for Starzplay, which has recently wrapped production on local original co-productions including the French-language All Those Things We Never Said.
Also on the slate is Express from Spain, while fellow Spanish-language show Toda La Sangre is in the works in Mexico.
