Canal+ & yes Thriller Possession Starts Filming


Possession, a new thriller from Canal+ Creation Originale and yes TV, has commenced filming in Israel in French, Hebrew and English.

Created by Shachar Magen (Sirens), who wrote the series with Valerie Zenatti (A Bottle in the Gaza Sea), and directed by Thomas Vincent (Bodyguard), Possession follows a young French expatriate in Israel named Natalie, who is accused of murdering her husband on their wedding night. A French diplomat who aids immigrants in difficulty begins to fall for Natalie—but struggles to determine if she’s deeply lost and vulnerable or dangerously manipulative. Possession stars Reda Kateb, Nadia Tereszkiewicz, Judith Chemla, Aloïse Sauvage, Dominique Valadié, Ariane Ascaride, Noa Koler, Roy Nick and Tcheky Karyo.

The six part series is produced by Caroline Benjo, Barbara Letellier, Simon Arnal and Carole Scotta for Haut et Court TV, and co-produced by Eilon Ratzkovsky, Osnat Nishri and Keren Misgav for Quiddity, for CANAL+ and yes TV Israel.
