CBC & Radio-Canada secures option deal with Banijay’s Terence Films for "Après"

The French title explores the aftermath of a tragic event in a small rural town in Quebec and will be adapted for France and French territories.




CBC & Radio-Canada Distribution announces that Banijay's producer Terence Films has picked up the option rights for France and French territories to adapt the award-winning French language drama series, "APRÈS" ("AFTER") produced by Duo Productions.

"AFTER" (6x60’) explores the aftermath of a tragic event in a small rural town in Quebec. The story begins within seconds of a fatal event and depicts the physical, psychological, and social consequences of a tragedy that is far too common today, but often unforeseen and unavoidable. The series, produced by Duo Productions, stars Karine Vanasse ("Pan Am, Revenge") and is directed by Louis Choquette ("Les Honorables").

“'AFTER' tells a powerful story about facing trauma, grief and resilience,” says Mia Desroches, Director of Global Distribution, Scripted and Kids Content. “We are extremely proud of this high impact and compelling limited series; it is a great property, and we are very excited to be working with Banijay and Terence Films to adapt it for new international audiences.”

Denis Leroy, Head of Scripted Formats at Banijay France adds “French-speaking Canada has always been a place for strong and innovative drama, and we are so happy to be partnering again with Radio Canada on this latest series. Trauma and resilience are very much universal themes, and we look forward to seeing audiences connect with the narrative.”
