Paris based Atlantique Productions has signed an exclusive development deal with Berlin based LUPA Film GmbH in order to develop and coproduce high-end TV series initiated by LUPA’s Felix von Boehm. The partnership will cover international TV series and German local originals.
Focused on the international market, Atlantique produces creative driven series conceived at an early stage with international talents and partners.
«Partnering with Felix von Boehm and LUPA enhances an already strong cooperation in order to grow a development slate of German originated projects aimed for the local and global market . After our first development deal with Patafilm in France, this second partnership in Germany with LUPA aims at fostering a strong network of talented European producers sharing our DNA for drama with an international appeal. We aim at doing more in the near future», say Olivier Bibas & Jimmy Desmarais.
«Entering this partnership with a highly experienced and non-domestic production house is a great consequence of our thrilling collaboration in the development of our coproduction EDEN. Building on this first experience we aspire to coproduce more serial projects in partnership with Atlantique in the near future. We’re convinced that the internationalization of the television landscape does not only allow access to new financial opportunities but most importantly inspires an intercultural creative dialogue. And why shouldn’t we think of our potential audience abroad already in the early stage of development?» says Felix von Boehm.
