ALP bosses launch Banijay France-backed scripted label Screen Line Productions

L-R: Alexia Laroche-Joubert & Frédéric Lussato

Survivor producer ALP’s CEO Alexia Laroche-Joubert, and MD Frédéric Lussato have set up Screen Line Productions, a new French scripted label backed by Banijay France.

The duo, who run French non-scripted firm ALP, which is behind shows such as Fort Boyard and Koh Lanta (Survivor), have also appointed Lavinia Jullien as development executive at Screen Line.

The new firm will focus on “character-driven content” and is developing original ideas as well as book adaptations, with a focus on youth-orientated themes.

Screen Line joins Banijay France’s stable of scripted labels including Banijay Studios France, Shine Fiction, Terence Films, Marathon and Montmartre.

“Together, Frédéric and I are eager to develop our know-how in a new creative field, and with the launch of Screen Line we are set to announce our first original series soon,” said Laroche-Joubert.

François de Brugada, CEO of Banijay France, added that: “The launch of Screen Line confirms Banijay France’s ambition to further grow in the field of scripted.”

The new label launch comes just one day after Banijay announced its acquisition of Italian live events firm Balich Wonder Studio.
