Mafiosa - American remake in development

Mafiosa joins Engrenages (Spiral), Braquo and Pigalle, la nuit in the pile of american remakes of Canal+ series in development. What's next : Scalp (about traders) ? Hard (about the porn industry) ? La Commune (about gangs) ? Maison Close (about a brothel) ? Reporters (about journalists) ? Airing the original series instead of remaking them ?

Helion Pictures takes US remake rights to French TV series Mafiosa.

Steven Bawol’s company will create an English-language version of the show that has had a successful 4-season run on Canal+.

Steven Bawol’s Helion Pictures has bought the US remake rights to the French-made crime drama Mafiosa about the Corsican mafia from Image et Compagnie.

Mafiosa’s four seasons have aired on Gallic TV channel Canal Plus since December 2006.

Mafiosa stars Hélène Fillières and Thierry Neuvic in the drama about the inner workings of a Corsican mob family after its patriarch dies and his young niece takes over as heir to the family business.

Helion also snagged the rights to another of Canal Plus’ crime drama’s Pigalle, la nuit in March. Dexter’s James Manos Jr., who won an Emmy for his work on The Sopranos, is writing a pilot for a US series and will exec produce if the series is picked up by a US network.

Image et Compagnie was founded in 1985 by Serge Moati and produces fiction, documentary and magazines for several major TV networks in France.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
