The global studios based in France, Mediawan Rights, announced a showcase event for the series "The Count of Monte Cristo," a title produced by Palomar (Italy) in collaboration with Demand Productions (France), both Mediawan companies. It is distributed worldwide by Mediawan Rights in cooperation with CAA (for North America) and with the participation of Entourage. 

The exclusive event will take place during the Series Mania Forum on March 19, from 5:00 PM at the Louis Pasteur auditorium, in the presence of the Oscar® winning director Bille August, the Golden Globes nominee actor Sam Claflin and the Oscar® winning actor Jeremy Irons.

This showcase offers an opportunity to see the first exclusive images of this show, for which post-production has just begun. Rebecca Lefler from Screen International will moderate it, and it promises to be an exceptional discussion on how Nicolas Serra, Bille August, Sam Claflin, and Jeremy Irons have approached Alexandre Dumas's novel.

Valérie Vleeschhouwer, Managing Director of Mediawan Rights, referred to the importance of those who will be part of the showcase. "It's a privilege to showcase 'The Count of Monte Cristo' Series Mania alongside the incredible talents of Billie August, Sam Claflin, and Jeremy Irons. With its universal appeal, the IP embodies a level of creativity and storytelling that truly sets it apart, breathing new life into one of the timeless masterpieces of literature, 'The Count of Monte Cristo,'" noted Vleeschhouwer.

On the other hand, Francesco Capurro, Director of Series Mania Forum, expressed himself in the same way: "It is a great honor that Mediawan has chosen Series Mania Forum for the unveiling of its highly anticipated event series 'The Count of Monte Cristo.' The exceptional presence in Lille of director Bille August, alongside acclaimed actors Sam Claflin and Jeremy Irons, promises to captivate industry professionals, international buyers, and press attending the event, who won't miss such an exclusive content showcase!"
