Shine France Films Gives Hit Canuck Series a Gallic Makoever

Evolution Ent.'s TV division is developing an English-language remake of the series

Shine France Films, the Paris-based fiction division of the U.K. powerhouse, has nabbed the Gallic makeover rights to Canadian comedy series “Adam & Eve.”

Evolution Entertainment’s TV division, the production outfit behind “Anger Management,” optioned English-language remake rights in February.

Repped by Avanti Cine Video, the popular series, helmed by Claude Meunier, started airing on pubcaster Radio-Canada in 2012.

The series follows the ins and outs of a married couple at three stages of their relationship — at 25, when they fall in love, at 40 when they’re dealing with work and parenting responsibilities, and at 80.

Since bowing last year, Shine France Films, headed by former Endemol exec Nora Mehli, has developed and produced “The Tunnel,” a U.K./French adaptation of the hit Scandi series, in association with Canal Plus and Sky Atlantic. Helmed by Dominik Moll and Ben Richards, “The Tunnel” will premiere next month at Mipcom in Cannes. Meanwhile, Shine France has garnered hit ratings with its game formats, notably “The Voice,” MasterChef” and “BabyBoom.”
