Gaumont Teams With ‘Real Humans”s Lars Lundstrom on ‘1001’

Gaumont TV Europe, a division of the 120-year old French studio, is set to produce “1001, an English-language contempt thriller created by “Real Human'”s creator Lars Lundstrom.

The series, which comprises 12 one-hour episodes, marks Gaumont TV Europe’s second project after “Spy City,” and is produced by Matador Film and Eyeworks Scandi Fiction.

Elisabeth Dreyer, the head of international co-productions for Gaumont Television Europe, unveiled the new show at Cannes’ MIPTV on Tuesday.

“We are starting to see a huge trend into drama production, making Europe a new frontier for television,” said Gaumont’s vice CEO Christophe Riandee. “Lars, Henrik and the team at Matador Film are the perfect partners for Gaumont Television Europe and we are delighted that 1001 is the second project to be announced after Spy City.”

Added Dreyer, “1001 is emblematic of the way we see international co-productions in that we are working with proven talent in Europe to bring their storytelling to audiences worldwide”.

The series will boast fictionalization and cinematic imagery, including our own world, universe and mythology. “1001” begins with a medical research project undertaken in the 1980’s in Sweden which has calamitous consequences. The story then jumps 30 years later, as policewoman Jasmine gets involved in a murder case and receives a message from someone claiming to have committed the crime. The blackmailer has insight into something from the past that must never get out.

“1001” will be one of 12 projects presented to over 200 international and European television professionals at the upcoming Series Mania Festival’s European Co-production Forum which will run April 22 -24 in Paris.
