Federation’s French Spy Drama ‘The Bureau’ Scores More Deals

PARIS– Federation Entertainment has inked multiple sales on Eric Rochant’s “The Bureau,” the hit Canal Plus spy series, in the run-up to MipTV.

The first two seasons of “The Bureau” have been acquired by VRT (Flemish speaking Belgium), SVT (Sweden), RTP (Portugal), and Rialto Channel (New Zealand). Seasons one and two of the show were previously acquired by Germany’s RTL Crime.

“This is an extremely riveting series that has the power to engage audiences worldwide – with intricate plots, compelling characters, provocative political themes, and more,” said Lionel Uzan, co-founder and managing director of Federation Entertainment. “Since Federation’s inception, our strategy has been to focus on quality, high-end productions in order to deliver a range of premium TV series – as such, we are proud to offer broadcasters ‘The Bureau,’ which fulfils this criteria and look forward to closing even more sales over the coming months.”

Set against the backdrop of the French Secret Service, “The Bureau” explores the complex lives of agents working in hostile locations around the world under false identities, who must juggle their professional and private lives. The series stars Mathieu Kassovitz, Sara Giraudeau, Léa Drucker, Jean-Pierre Darroussin and Brad Leland.

Created by Eric Rochant for Canal Plus’ original creation division and produced by the Oligarchs Productions, the series delves into contemporary themes such as the rise of ISIS in the Middle East, counter-terrorism, counterintelligence, Iran, Syria, Libya and other war zones.
