Montréal, November 21, 2016 - Cécile Chevrier of Phare-Est Média, Joanne Forgues of Productions Casablanca Inc. and Marc Poulin of Avenue Productions are pleased to announce an agreement with ITV Studios Inc. in Los Angeles to adapt the series LE CLAN. Among other series, ITV has produced Meet the Parents, the BAFTA-award-winning Cold Feet, Victoria and Tutankhamun.
LE CLAN is a 12-episode series written by Joanne Arseneau and directed by Jim Donovan. It will be adapted into a 60-minute format.
LE CLAN tells the story of Yannick Moreau, a reformed ex-criminal forced to become an informant after years of working with his drug-trafficking father and brothers in New Brunswick. Having been relocated to Quebec for his own protection several years earlier, Yannick is now Jean-François Gagnon, the owner of an equestrian centre and a town councillor. No one would believe what he once was. Even the wife and two children he shares his new life with know nothing about his past.
From the very beginning of the 12-episode series, it’s clear his life is going to be turned upside down. His father and brothers are about to be released from prison after serving eight years because of him. They will do anything to get revenge. Unforeseen circumstances will pit them against each other in a battle that leaves none in the family unscathed.
ITV Studios has entrusted the development of the project to Christina Wayne of Assembly Entertainment. Christina Wayne was a network executive on Breaking Bad and Mad Men and executive producer on a series called Copper.
Such interest from ITV Studios Inc. once again proves that our creativity is a sought-after export, generating economic spinoffs and benefiting our industry as a whole. This success is a reflection of the vitality of our local drama production, which is built on the talent and imagination of writers, actors, craftspeople, directors and producers.
The series was broadcast on ICI Radio-Canada Télé.
