Federation Entertainment and So Press’s media production division, So In Love, have sealed a deal to work on “MH370.” “This marks one of the most important investigative reports in the history of So Press," Franck Annese and Brieux Férot, Producers at SO IN LOVE jointly commented. "We have been considering a TV adaptation for several years now but wanted to take our time and ensure everything was aligned. 

Catherine Alvaresse, Head of Documentaries for France Télévisions revealed the project during a press conference at Sunny Side of the Doc. The series is co-developed with France Télévisions.  “France Télévisions documentaries intend to make sense of the world in all its nuances and complexities," Catherine Alvaresse, Head of Documentaries, France Télévisions said. "Based on this extensive investigation by So Press, we are developing a truly unique docu-series about the tragic disappearance of flight 'MH370,' and we are delighted to be collaborating with So In Love and Federation Entertainment on this special production.”

Federation is in charge of the global distribution sales for the show. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Catherine Alvaresse and the France Télévisions team, as well as our continued collaboration with Federation Entertainment which is just going from strength to strength,” Annese and Brieux Férot said.

The five-part docu-series explores the tragic and sudden disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 flight in 2014 and how to this day there are still no tangible explanations as to what actually happened. The mystery of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, containing 239 passengers, continues to disturb the public seven years later. “Since its inception, Society magazine has been producing original stand-out and in-depth reports, leaving no stone unturned,” Myriam Weil, Head of Documentaries, Federation Entertainment, said.  “Working in collaboration with this super editorial team and France Télévisions is stimulating from both a content and narrative perspective.”

This marks one of the most important investigative reports in the history of So Press. We have been considering a TV adaptation for several years now but wanted to take our time and ensure everything was aligned. ” Franck Annese and Brieux Férot Producers, So In Love
