Created by award-winning film director Eric Rochant (The Patriots, Love Without Pity, The Bureau), Maui Entertainment focuses on supporting talent and showrunners in the creation of international series, benefiting from Rochant and his team's unparalleled expertise, as well as Federation's extensive global reach.

Maui Entertainment's first series, "Tout Va Bien" (Everything is Fine), created by Camille de Castelnau, will launch on Disney+ on November 15. The stellar cast features Virginie Efira, Sara Giraudeau, Nicole Garcia, Aliocha Schneider, Bernard Le Coq, Eduardo Noriega, and Yannik Landrein. The 8-part series is directed by Eric Rochant, Xavier Legrand, Cathy Verney, and Audrey Estrougo. This week, Disney+ released the first trailer for the series. And the screenplay for Season Two of "Tout Va Bien" is also underway.

Further, Maui Entertainment is in production on Eric Rochant's latest projects, including a gripping spy series (an ambitious international co-production). The prodco is also developing "Someone Should Ban Sunday Afternoons," a modern-day French series set in Paris, created by Isabel Coixet for Arte. The Spanish screenwriter and director who created the series Foodie Love for HBO and directed more than fifteen feature films in Spain and the U.S. has rarely been out of the news, having recently helmed "Un Amor" currently screening in many international film festivals before its release.

Eric Rochant, President of Maui Entertainment, said: "Establishing Maui Entertainment with Pascal Breton marked the start of a new adventure – where I can share my expertise with writers to help them on their journey to become great showrunners while nurturing their creativity. For me, this next phase is also about exploring a broad range of even more ambitious projects beyond 'The Bureau.'"

"Following the extraordinary success of our hit series 'The Bureau' created by Eric Rochant, our relationship has gone from strength to strength. Our association also creates a strong basis for Eric to continue producing several series and films while preparing his next ambitious international spy series and other genres," Pascal Breton, President of Federation Studios, added.
