Having reached over ten million people when it aired in France, TF1's TV movie Woman Under Influence (L'Emprise) has been acquired by Atresmedia for broadcast in Spain.

The deal, inked at MIPTV, enables Atresmedia to dub the French 90-minute production and air it through one of its free-to-air DTT channels - Antena 3, laSexta, Neox or Nova.

The movie gained a 35% share in France and became the most watched TV movie of the last eight years.

Directed by Claude-Michel Rome, Women Under Influence tells the real story of a woman who, after living 17 years with a man who mistreats her, faces trial for murder. The movie stars Odile Vuillemin, Fred Testot, Marc Lavoine, Lolita Chammah, Sam Karmann and Micky Sebastian.

Following its success in France, the production has achieved great sales at MIPTV, which ends today (16 April).
