Canal+, C More to Air Eden


All3Media International has lined up new deals for the Stan original series and Spectrum Originals co-production Eden.

Canal+ will launch the series in France. C More has picked up rights in a pan-territory deal covering Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Sky acquired the series for New Zealand.

Eden launched in Australia this month as a Stan original series and will be available for U.S. audiences on Spectrum Originals from July 12. The contemporary thriller is produced by Every Cloud Productions’ Fiona Eagger and Deb Cox (Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries) and Balloon Entertainment (Clique, Kiss Me First). The story unfolds in an idyllic coastal town, where the disappearance of a young woman triggers a devastating chain of events, exposing the dark heart of this supposed paradise. As long-buried secrets are dragged into the open, lives and deeds intersect over one fractured summer and its aftermath.

Cox, co-founder and creative director of Every Cloud Productions, said: “Fiona and I are thrilled to showcase locations we love with a sophisticated story that speaks to diverse audiences regardless of culture or language and we feel the creative alchemy—combining the best of our local talent with the insight of our various overseas partners and broadcasters—has produced an exciting international series.”

Maartje Horchner, executive VP of content at All3Media International, added, “It is brilliant to already have such quality partners on board ahead of Eden’s launch, and we are excited to know other deals are in negotiation. With its stunning setting, talented and diverse young cast, and consistently compelling storytelling from Vanessa Gazy and an all-female writing team, we are certain other territories will soon be tempted by Eden.”

Dave Evans, executive producer for Balloon Entertainment, said: “We’ve loved working on this, our first international co-production—an eerie, unique mystery set in an extraordinary place with a phenomenal cast and crew. It’s been a wild pleasure working with our Australian partners Every Cloud and All3Media International to bring the brilliant Vanessa Gazy’s first television series to fruition with a team of writers bursting with talent and originality.”
