Sales for French-Canadian Crime Series The Sketch Artist


Attraction Distribution has lined up new broadcast partners for the crime series The Sketch Artist from ALSO Productions.

The French-Canadian series has sold to SBS in Australia, Lumière in Benelux, BookMyShow in India, Globo in Brazil and GSN for multiple territories.

The series, which is presented through the lens of a young forensic sketch artist, debuted last spring on the Club Illico VOD platform. It is produced in collaboration with Quebecor Content.

“We are thrilled by the high caliber of these initial champions of the show,” said Xiaojuan Zhou, president of Attraction Distribution. “We can say that the series will be seen on at least four continents, which reflects its universal appeal. We hope that it’s nothing but the beginning of a wonderful journey for all of us and that more territories will board in the coming months.”

Alexis Durand-Brault, co-creator and co-director, added, “With great delight and gratitude, we take note of the initial embrace of our production by these prestigious companies around the world. We have made the series with international audiences in mind, and hope they will enjoy it as much as we did when creating it.”
