Oble extends its relationship with leading Swiss drama producer Point Prod, by inking a deal for the international distribution of Point Prod’s heartwarming, witty, family drama series La Vie Devant (aka ‘Life Goes On’), which premiered at the TV Drama Festival at La Rochelle last month (Sept 2022).
The 6 x 52' series is a co-production between Point Prod (Jean Marc Fröhle) and Les Films du Cygne for Swiss broadcaster RTS. Directed by Klaudia Reynicke and Kristina Wagenbauer, and written by Frederic Recrosio, La Vie Devant stars Audrey Dana (French Women, If I Were a Boy, Roman de Gare) as Valeria, a heavily pregnant ‘superwoman’.
“In a poignant, non-reductionist way La Vie Devant, strips life down to ‘what it means to be human, what it means to be loved’. Frederic Recrosio’s script brings warmth and a deft lightness to the series without compromising its emotional impact, and the cast performances elevate it to something truly special. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Point Prod again to introduce La Vie Devant to international audiences", Said Hugo Brisbois, CEO & co-founder of Oble.
“La Vie Devant is an uplifting look at how life can throw us a curveball, and change us forever, but change is often rewarding in the most unexpected ways. We’re delighted to be extending our existing relationship with Oble to take La Vie Devant to the international market”, said Jean Marc Fröhle, CEO of Point Prod.
