RTL2 picks up Gallic mini ‘Dolmen’

Murder mystery also sold to Mediaset and La Forta

PARIS — France’s hit miniseries “Dolmen” will air in primetime next month on Germany’s RTL2, among a number of broadcasters in Europe and further afield to have acquired the show, Gallic producer distribber Marathon said Friday.

Six-part murder mystery set in Brittany has also sold to Italy’s Mediaset, Spain’s La Forta, and broadcasters right across Eastern Europe.

Japan’s Mystery is the latest channel to buy the series, which was France’s top rated show in 2005, delivering commercial web TF1 some 12 million viewers.

Marathon has seen a significant jump in business with Germany, the company said Friday, with Teuton deals repping 20% of total sales so far this year, up from a recent low of 5-6%.

Company’s teen series “15 Love” aired on Kika earlier this year, and will air on ZDF later this year, “Totally Spies” season four has sold to Super RTL and negotiations are advanced with German broadcasters on the animated shows “Team Galaxy” — which sold to the UK’s GMTV, among others, at Mipcom — “Monster Buster Club” and the docu series “Final Days of an Icon,” about Sharon Tate.

New German pay-per-view channel RTL Passion acquired seven seasons, 182 x 52 episodes, of the daily soap “St. Tropez.”
