Paris-based Federation Entertainment will this week make its debut at the Asia Television Forum with a timely lineup of scripted entertainment.

Topping its Singapore Media Festival slate is “The Bureau” (aka “Le Bureau des Legendes”,) a drama series about the operations of the French secret service, starring Mathieu Kassovitz.

The series begins with the return to the DGSE headquarters of the lead officer, after a six-year mission in Syria. But his return to normal life is complicated when he learns that a woman he was in love with in Damascus is actually now in Paris.

In addition to its market debut at ATF, the 20-part show gets a screening this week (Thursday, Dec 3) at the Singapore branch of the Alliance Francaise.

Other shows on Federation’s lineup include a 22-part action drama “Hostages,” medical drama “Replacements,” and live action teen drama “The Greenhouse.”

The company was founded two years ago by industry veteran Pascal Breton. It describes itself as a “fully-integrated television production and distribution studio comprised of exclusive partnerships with highly experienced executives, producers and show runners in global entertainment.”
