MKS is a joint venture between Marvelous Productions and French prodco Kabo Family. Full Time Studio is a new venture launched by producers Thomas Lubeau, Marc Olla and Eric Gendarme.

The trio is developing an 8×45′ series based on Predateurs, the first novel in Chattam’s La Trilogie Du Mal. The story follows a military police inquiry into a series of savage killings not committed by the enemy during operations.

It will be written and adapted for the screen by Alexandre Charlot and Franck Magnier, the pair behind Welcome to the Sticks (Bienvenue Chez les Ch’tis), the highest-grossing film in French cinema history.

The TV adaptation will be set in a near future when the world is on the brink of war due to climate change and violent migration policies.

Under the deal, the partnership has also agreed to adapt another Chattam novel, La Théorie Gaïa.
