Proust work set for TV adaptation

SERIES MANIA: French producers Cinéfrance Studios, Federation Entertainment and Don’t Be Shy are adapting Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time for television.

La Recherche is being adapted by French actor and director Guillaume Gallienne who will create, direct and coproduce the series.

It is based on the seven-volume work which follows the narrator’s childhood and experiences into adulthood during the late 19th and early 20th century in France.

Gallienne will work with a team of writers from the world of drama and literature.

Federation Entertainment (Pascal Breton, Lionel Uzan) and Cinéfrance Studios (Julien Deris, David Gauquié) will handle executive production of the series. Three eight-episode seasons are planned, to be distributed internationally by Federation Entertainment.

In related news, Federation has also acquired distribution rights to original Israeli series On The Spectrum, created by Dana Idisis and Yuval Shafferman and produced by Sumayoko Productions and Yes Studios.

The series was commissioned and broadcast on Yes TV in Israel. Federation has secured distribution rights to the format and finished series in French-peaking territories.

Winner of the Grand Prize at Series Mania last year, On The Spectrum is a dramedy exploring the everyday struggles of three 20-something roommates with autism.

Amazon has recently announced a North American version of the series with Emmy-winning showrunner and writer Jason Katmis at the helm.
