Founder / CEO

Federation, the relatively new Paris-based production and distribution firm behind the Canal Plus spy show “The Bureau,” has recently stepped into the U.S. market, with nearly a dozen English-language projects planned, including “Ibiza,” a thriller created by Ryan Engle and Jaume Collet Serra, and “The Banker’s Wife,” the series adaptation of Cristina Alger’s book.

The banner is kicking off with the production of Christian Jacq’s “Ramses,” an epic saga of the formidable Ancient Egyptian pharaoh, and “Sisi,” a period series about Empress Elisabeth of Austria.
