Find Me in Paris Picked Up by NHK


Federation Kids & Family has lined up a deal with Japanese public broadcaster NHK for the first season of the hit tween series Find Me in Paris.

Find Me in Paris is scheduled to debut on NHK’s E-TELE channel on April 10. The series is produced by Cottonwood Media with ZDF, ZDF Enterprises, Be-Films and the Opera National de Paris and has been sold into 130 countries and currently broadcasts in over 80 territories worldwide.

“Ever since I saw the first episode, I have been captivated by the series,” said NHK’s senior producer in the global content development division, Mari Sakamaki. “In the series, we see such great dance—from classical ballet to hip-hop—by the great actors, and the program is full of entertaining and exciting elements such as time travel, mystery, love and friendship. It is our pleasure to bring this wonderful program to Japanese teenagers. I am looking forward to sharing the joy that I have experienced with our viewers very soon.”

Sarah Zarka, Federation’s international sales executive, added, “With so many young people turning to content for entertainment and escapism during this challenging period, we are delighted to see that Find Me in Paris has extended its reach to Japan. The very nature of this global hit covers so many uplifting elements such as dance, comedy, intrigue, fantasy, romance and much more, so the timing is perfect and we hope it brings in a ray of sunshine and enjoyment as it has done for other audiences worldwide.”
