Pascal Breton’s Federation takes a majority stake in France’s Robin & Co

Pascal Breton’s Federation Entertainment has taken a majority stake in fellow French drama producer Robin & Co.

Pascal Breton

Robin & Co was created in 1998 by Jean-Yves Robin who has been co-director of the firm with Laetitia Recayte since 2020. It produces dramas for major networks and platforms, feature films, documentaries, magazines and live shows.

The group includes subsidiaries Calt Production (Kaamelott, Caméra Café, Vous les Femmes, Soda, Chefs…), Calt Studio headed by Xavier Matthieu (Moloch, Disparu à Jamais) and Calt Story headed by Hervé Bellech (La Dernière Partie, Or de Lui, A Mon Tour). It also includes Hope Production, Monkey Pack Film and Robin Production.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Pascal Breton, president of Federation said: ”The exceptional relationship that Jean-Yves Robin has managed to build with many actors, writers and directors, especially in comedy, is unique in France.

“He and his team of producers know how to accompany all these talents from the Festival du Rire comedy festival and small stand-up venues to the biggest popular successes, in series or cinema.

“Our association can offer them even more outlets on channels, platforms, the international market and all the derivative markets born of the digital revolution that we are exploring.”

Jean-Yves Robin, president of Robin & Co, said: “Almost 24 years after the creation of Robin & Co, I wanted to give a new impetus to the group by approaching an industry partner who understands where we come from and our way of working, namely through a very strong relationship with our talents. The project that Pascal has built with his team is a perfect fit and I felt the obvious complementarities between our two groups, both artistically and in terms of business.”

Founded in 2013, Federation is headed by Pascal Breton and co-directed by Lionel Uzan. Among the group’s top titles are The Bureau, In Treatment, Baby, Hostages, and Marseille.
