Zodiak Rights has signed a raft of deals in Asia for the 2013 International Emmy award-winning drama series, The Returned (aka Rebound), produced by Haut et Court for Canal+.

In Thailand, True Vision Group has acquired the series which will be the first French drama broadcast in the country. Zodiak Rights struck a similar deal with Hong-Kong's Now TV and Taiwan's public broadcaster PTS, and South Korea's AXN has also committed to the series.

Known as Les Revenants in France, the series became the highest-rated original drama of all time on Canal+. In the UK, it became the highest rated subtitled drama since 2006, attracting an average audience of 1.8 million viewers in its prime time slot on Channel 4.

The series is currently airing on USA's Sundance Channel.

The Returned has already sold in over 40 territories.
