Federation has acquired the world distribution rights to "Good People," and will present the dark comedy series at Series Mania 2022. 

The show, produced by Hélicotronc and Unité for ARTE and the Series Fund of the French Community of Belgium (FWB) / RTBF, can be found at the event's International Panorama section. It will be presented in Lille on Wednesday March 23rd at 8:30 PM at the UGC Ciné-Cité alongside the film’s talent with a second screening set for March 24th at 4:30 PM at the same theater.

Created and directed by Stéphane Bergmans, Benjamin Aoust and Matthieu Donck and produced by Julie Esparbes and Anthony Rey for Hélicotronc and Caroline Nataf for Unité, in coproduction with RTBF, Proximus and ARTE France, the show was released following the global success of "The Break,"which sold its two seasons to 45 countries including the United States, Germany, Spain and Scandinavian territories among others.

The cast includes Lucas Meister, Bérangère McNeese, Peter Van den Begin, India Hair, Gwen Berrou, Michaël Abiteboul, Lucile Vignolles and Dominique Pinon, plus special appearances by local stars on both sides of the Franco-Belgian border, François Damiens and Corinne Masiero. Shooting took place in the summer of 2021 in Belgium and the Ardennes region of France.

The comedy highlights people's ability to go good, while doing bad things, but still having good intentions. The story follows a couple of thirtysomethings Tom and Linda, a policeman and a beautician respectively. They live in Belgium along the French border and are on the verge of bankruptcy. Caught between a rock and a hard place, they embark on a get-rich-quick life insurance scam in an attempt to give themselves a fresh start someplace sunny.
