“It is such an exciting time to be part of Studiocanal TV as the business continues to evolve and expand," Francoise Guyonnet, Executive Managing Director, TV Series at Studiocanal said. "We could not be more focused when selecting the right production partner – as well as having a European DNA that works internationally, they need to share our ambition to create the most inclusive, diverse and entertaining content for global audiences. We are delighted to welcome an amazing talent such as Annamaria Morelli and her team to our growing roster of partners across Europe.” 

Both fiction and non-fiction series created within the new partnership will be distributed internationally by Studiocanal. Other programming in the works includes a scripted comedy series and an episodic female-led period drama, as well as a number of high-end, unscripted docu-series with announcements to follow.  Elsinore Film is overseen by Annamaria Morelli (SKAM Italia; Amanda), former head of production at TimVision and well-known for scouting new talent and trends. A 100% affiliate of CANAL+ Group held by Vivendi - as well as financing and producing 30 and distributing 50 feature films annually - STUDIOCANAL produces more than 200 hours of international TV content each year.    

The extensive partnership will begin with a multiple project slate including a series based on the graphic novel "Sadboi" by Berliac. Set in Venice, SADBOI is a teen drama merging heist and the contemporary art world and featuring uniquely conceived and complex characters.   “We at Elisnore Film are proud and thrilled to partner with such a prestigious company like STUDIOCANAL, known worldwide for the quality and success of its contents," Annamaria Morelli, CEO at Elsinore Film said. "Our partnership relies on a common vision and on common goals: discovering the most talented, innovative and inclusive Italian storytelling and bringing it to the national and international audiences.
