Founder / CEO

Federation, the relatively new firm behind Netflix’s first French show, “Marseille,” and the Canal Plus spy show “The Bureau,” has recently stepped into the U.S. market, with nearly a dozen English-language projects in the pipeline, including projects with Paramount TV and other American companies. The majority of its titles are niche, local shows with the potential to lure in international audiences, such as Dutch series “Undercover,” Israeli thriller “Hostages” and German financial thriller “Bad Banks.” Its current slate includes “Ibiza,” a thriller created by Ryan Engle (Dwayne Johnson’s “Rampage”) and Jaume Collet Serra, and a U.S. remake of spy thriller “The Bureau.” Breton founded production shingle Marathon and produced many famous French shows.
