NEW YORK (March 31st, 2017) – A+E Networks® is partnering with Newen Studios to bring A+E’s most successful formats to French audiences. It was jointly announced today by Patrick Vien, Executive Managing Director, International, A+E Networks and Bibiane Godfroid, Managing Director of Newen.

Newen, France’s oldest and famed television production house and the country’s second most prolific content producer, will be able to produce such A+E’s acclaimed formats, Alone and Bride & Prejudice, locally.
A leader in unscripted and scripted programming, Newen’s most recent success is the historical drama series Versailles, with the first episode of Season 2 on air this week on Canal Plus gaining a very large audience success.

“Our deal with Newen demonstrates A+E Network’s commitment to continued expansion in the international marketplace through strong, long-term partnerships with the best broadcast and production players,” said Vien. “Our formats belong to a new generation of television; they are entertainment with a social purpose. After major success in the U.S.  and the U.K. we consider France’s audience to offer enormous potential for groundbreaking formats.”

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Newen to grow our collective businesses together,” added Denis Cantin, Vice President, Head of International Sales, EMEA, A+E Networks.  “As Newen becomes A+E’s production partner in France, it opens the door to our U.S. channels for Newen’s formats and their next high-end drama series.”

For Bibiane Godfroid, Managing Director of Newen: “Production Valley (Newen’s subsidiary in charge of factual and entertainment) will be highly dedicated to the promotion of A+E formats on the French market and will work with all the broadcasters to promote them.”

For Alexandra Crucq, Managing Director of Production Valley (Newen’s subsidiary in charge of factual and entertainment): “I am delighted that this agreement could be made between this great player of the US market and Production Valley. A+E formats question society and the world that surrounds us through new forms of storytelling, thus enabling them to reach a very large audience. Alone & Bride and Prejudice are already being well received on the French market.”

Le 6 septembre dernier, Newen, et Keshet International (KI), la branche distribution et production du groupe Keshet Media, s’associaient pour le développement de nouvelles séries internationales haut de gamme.

Les deux sociétés ont ainsi appelé auteurs professionnels, français et israéliens, à soumettre des propositions de projets originaux en Anglais ou en Hébreu, correspondant à des formats d’une heure ou d’une demi-heure et présentant un intérêt pour des publics Européens.

35 projets au total ont été reçus.

L’appel à projets est maintenant clos depuis le 1er novembre.

Les scénarios reçus se répartissent à parts égales entre projets provenant d’auteurs français, confirmés ou pas, et d’auteurs israéliens dont certains sont déjà crédités sur des séries à succès, comme Moshe Zonder et Leora Kamenetzky pour Fauda.

Sur les thématiques, un bon nombre de projets sont des thrillers contemporains, quelques projets autour du choc culturel franco–israélien, de l’ambition en politique, et quelques projets d’anticipation.

La lecture de ces projets par les équipes de Newen et Keshet permettra une première évaluation après confrontation des avis de part et d’autres, fin novembre à Londres. L’objectif étant de retenir 5 à 7 (max) projets qui seront alors soumis aux producteurs de fiction du Groupe.

Les finalistes seront annoncés en Janvier 2017

Ils auront l’opportunité de travailler avec un showrunner européen expérimenté, une équipe de production et de développement, et bénéficieront d’un accès inédit au marché mondial de la fiction.

Cette initiative est menée par Sandra Ouaiss, Directrice des Co-productions pour Newen et Productrice Associée et Atar Dekel, Directrice des Co-productions Fiction Internationale et Nelly Feld, Directrice des ventes Europe, pour Keshet International. Le jury inclura plus largement la Directrice Fiction de Keshet Diffusion, Karni Ziv, ainsi que certains producteurs de Telfrance et Capa Drama (Groupe Newen).

Premier projet du groupe retenu par Séries Mania dans le cadre du forum des Coproductions

Cette année, le Forum des coproductions a reçu 321 projets et en a sélectionné 15 qui seront pitchés en Avril, dont THE STEINS le projet retenu par NEWEN et KESHET International dans le cadre de l’appel à projets lancé en fin d’année dernière.

The STEINS raconte le mythe de Frankenstein adapté dans une famille française moderne écrit par un jeune auteur talentueux et prometteur Nils Antoine Sambuc. La série mêle habilement le drame familial et le mystère avec un humour sombre et acide. Servie par un concept solide et original, les personnages sont contrastés, riches et attachants.

Le projet sera pitché par les équipes de Keshet International et Sandra Ouaiss pour Newen
le 18 avril prochain.
L’objectif est de trouver des chaines françaises et étrangères et d’autres partenaires pour financer le développement de ce projet.
