PARIS — Lagardere-owned Europe Image Intl. has closed format deals on Canal Plus’ comedy series “Bref.”

“Bref” is a vfx-packed chronicle of a single, unemployed 30-year-old French guy, played by stand-up comedian Kyan Khojandi, who co-created the series with scribe Bruno Muschio.

“Bref’s” format was optioned by Spain’s Shine, Italy’s Picomedia and Bananas, plus Canadian net TV1.

Shine, Picomedia and Bananas will shop the format adaptation to local broadcasters.

Emmanuelle Bouilhaguet, head of sales at Europe Image Intl., said, “Deals on ‘Bref’ illustrate broadcasters’ growing appetite for format acquistions, which, among other things, allow networks to limit risks.”
