Les revenants (Rebound) - Picked up by Channel 4



Channel 4 has picked up hit French-language drama Rebound. It marks the first time in over two decades that the UK free-to-air broadcaster will have shown a subtitled drama and follows the success of non-English language offerings such as Spiral on BBC Four, Braquo on FX and Maison Close on Sky Arts.

The eight-part French fantasy drama follows a group of people trying to return to their homes in an Alpine village – without realising that they are actually dead.

Gil Hay, head of acquisitions at Channel 4 said: "The first fully subtitled drama that we have broadcast in 20 years, everything about Rebound feels very Channel 4: visceral, compelling and incredibly contemporary, the creators have taken the supernatural genre and re-written the rules."

Les revenants performed well on French premium channel Canal+, which commissioned the series from French producer Haut & Court. Channel 4 bought the series from Zodiak Rights, which sells it globally.

The distributor has also sold it to broadcasters SVT in Sweden, Hot in Israel, Hong Kong's Now TV & Viasat in Hungary. It is in advanced negotiations for deals in the US, Canada, Japan, Australia, Italy & Latin Am.

Rebound is a hot property at the moment with international sales taking off and FremantleMedia also inking a deal for English-language remake rights. The English version will be made by AbbottVision, State of Play and Shameless creator Paul Abbott’s production company, with which FremantleMedia has a first-look deal.
