LE Rights has sold “bref.” to Pivot in the United States. One of the first television programs to be aired in French in the U.S!
LER, distribution subsidiary of Lagardère Entertainment is glad to announce the sale of TV series “bref.” in the United States, to the brand new network Pivot, which is brought by Participant Media (The Help, Contagion and Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln) and targeting the Millennials (18-34).
The innovative series “bref.” which was a true success on Canal + and online (more than 3 million fans on Facebook) completely fits into the context of Pivot which is available on pay TV, VOD and Live Streaming.
“”bref.” is perfect for our network at so many levels. It is a series our audience will truly relate to and lends itself to binge and repeat viewing. Airing it in French with English subtitles preserves its authenticity and we’re excited to share it with American audiences."
Jennie Morris – Senior Vice President of Acquisitions at Pivot
“ We are so proud of this new collaboration, which gives the opportunity to quality innovative French programs to be broadcast by a bold channel in America. “
Eléonore de Prunelé – Director of Sales at LE Rights
“We grew up with a lot of American standards and a few French exceptions as models. So we’re really proud that "bref." is going to be the very first French series broadcast in its original version on a US channel. The destiny of this show – two years after its launching – never ceases to surprise us, and it’s very encouraging in light of the path we’ve chosen to take: to do what we love to the best of our ability, so we can be worthy of the luck we’ve been given. Thanks to all those who made this show such a turning point in our lives.”
