French TV group TF1 and Luc Besson’s company EuropaCorp Television have signed a partnership agreement to develop and produce English-speaking international series.

This announcement is designed to complement TF1’s French drama offer and strengthen a previously announced partnership with Luc Besson in the movie sector.

Headed by Thomas Anargyros and Edouard de Vésine, EuropaCorp Television has already produced series XIII (Canal+, M6) and is coproducing with Atlantique Production (Lagardčre) the TV adaptation of The Transporter for M6.

“The international drama market has become a strategic orientation that fits the channels’s appetite for exclusive and premium contents,” adds EuropaCorp TV.
