CANNES: Harlan Coben, a New York Times best-selling author, brings his talents to television in The Five, which STUDIOCANAL believes will drum up strong interest among the international broadcast community.

“The story line and characters are riveting, with twists and unexpected turns that will keep audiences at the edge of their seats,” says Katrina Neylon, the executive VP of sales and marketing at STUDIOCANAL.

Meanwhile, César-nominated writer and director Olivier Marchal (Braquo) is behind the drama Section Zéro, a political, sci-fi thriller. Revenge, betrayal and political intrigue are at the center of Baron Noir, which Neylon calls a “wonderfully and wickedly woven tale.” The series follows a French politician who seeks revenge against his political enemies.

“We want our clients to become accustomed to finding exceptional content in STUDIOCANAL’s ever-expanding catalogue and to know that we are the home of the very best in international drama,” Neylon adds.
