Haut Et Cout TV Teams With July-August Prods. And Tandem For Yael Hedaya-Penned ‘Rubber Ducks’

France’s Haut et Court TV, the company behind hit supernatural drama “The Returned,” is set to team up with Israel’s July-August Productions to develop “Rubber Ducks,” a psychological thriller series penned by Yael Hedaya (“In Treatment”). 

Studiocanal-owned Tandem is co-developing and will handle worldwide distribution of the series, which was unveiled at Mipcom by Caroline Benjo, managing director of Haut et Court TV.

“Rubber Ducks” tells a fictionalized story based on an actual experiment undertaken by NASA in 2008.  During the low-tech experiment, NASA dropped 90 rubber duck toys through holes in a Greenland glacier, trying to track how the Arctic icecap is melting. 

Following the path of ‘The Returned’’s (pictured above) new take on a genre, we are thrilled to be producing this amazing high concept/ character-driven series, playing with the viewers expectations like any great modern TV storytelling — entertaining, complex, frightening and funny at the same time, while scrutinizing our modern worlds intimate idiosyncrasies through the most fascinating events,” said Benjo. 

July-August Productions’ Eilon Ratzkovsky added, “Yael Hedaya’s ability to merge our innermost thoughts and feelings with global scale environmental disorders will surely bring something fresh to our TV screens. The more we dig into this concept, the more fascinated we get.”

“We have great admiration and respect for the incredible success and critical acclaim Haut et Court and July-August Productions have achieved with their remarkable projects and are very excited to be co-developing and distributing this thrilling and unique show with them,” says Tandem’s Executive vice president and partner Jonas Bauer.  “Rubber Ducks — with such a tantalizing storyline, it will surely appeal to audiences worldwide.”
