NMV takes French-Canadian format south

London-based producer and distributor New Media Vision (NMV) has picked up the US rights to a French-Canadian scripted format from Encore Television.

Les Beaux Malaises aired on TVA in Canada

Les Beaux Malaises (The Beautiful Discomforts) first aired in 2014 on TVA in Canada produced by Encore, and picked up 33 awards during its three years on air.

The series chronicles the personal life of celebrity stand-up comedian Martin who has to be funny for his day job but cuts an awkward and unsure figure as a husband and father.

NMV will now adapt the series for the US market where it has previously produced two seasons of The Mysteries of Laura, adapted from Spanish format Los Misterios De Laura, for NBC.

NMV was founded by CEO Todd Lituchy.
