Studiocanal Sells Tandem-Produced ‘Spotless’ to Australia’s SBS

Skein premiered on NBCUniversal’s Esquire Network

Studiocanal has sold rights on the dark crime series “Spotless” to SBS Australia. It is scheduled to air there in 2016, Studiocanal, the European production-distribution-sales company, announced Monday.

Studiocanal is handling worldwide sales for “Spotless.” Produced by Tandem Productions, the skein is also a Canal Plus original series in France. “Spotless” is co-created and written by BAFTA winner Ed McCardie (“Shameless”) and Oscar winning producer-writer Corinne Marrinan (“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”).

Cesar Award winner Marc-Andre Grondin (“C.R.A.Z.Y.”), Denis Menochet (“Inglorious Basterds”), Miranda Raison (“24: Live Another Day”) and Brendan Coyle (“Downton Abbey”) star in the series, which was shot in London.

“’Spotless’ is dark, dangerous, sexy and hilarious with fantastic and daring story-telling in a pan-European setting. This is an edgy, premium content series that will appeal and connect with viewers of SBS Australia programming,” said Robert Slaviero, Studiocanal CEO, Australia & New Zealand.

“Spotless” world premiered on France’s Canal Plus this year and got its U.S. debut at NBCUniversal’s Esquire Network last Saturday.

An acid London-set dramedy, “Spotless” follows outlaw brothers Jean and Martin Bastiere. The fairly quiet life of Jean, who runs a crime scene cleansing business, is turned upside down when Martin crash-lands into his world. Both will have to face their childhood misdemeanors in addition to current challenges, such as corruption, drugs and the mob.
