Canal+ Picks Up French-Canadian Whodunit for CEE


Oble has shored up a round of sales that includes the French-Canadian murder mystery No Return being picked up by Canal+ for Poland and CEE markets.

Produced by Sphere Media, No Return originally premiered on Bell Media’s Noovo linear channel and its SVOD service Crave. Canal+ Luxembourg will introduce the six-parter to European audiences for the first time. Canal+ Polska will air the title on its Ale Kino+ channel and OTT service Canal+ online.

Canal+ Luxembourg also went for two seasons of the Ukrainian young adult series Early Birds. The two-parter, produced by Starlight Media, will reach audiences in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Romania as part of the company’s local SVOD offerings.

Meanwhile, the Swiss family dramedy Life Goes On, originally produced by Point Prod and broadcast on RTS, has been picked up by TV5MONDE.

Stories that educate, entertain and inspire. We are convinced that great storytelling knows no boundaries, and these three shows are a perfect example of the engaging content we strive to share with the world.”
