Apple has moved forward with its first French-language original series entitled Liaison, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The thriller series will explore the significance of acknowledging how one’s past mistakes have the ability to shape their future. The story of passionate and unpredictable love will feature a combination of English and French dialogue.
Liaison stars Vincent Cassel (Black Swan) and Eva Green (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children). The action series was created and written by Virginie Brac (Engrenages), and will be directed by Stephen Hopkins (24). Other castmembers will include Peter Mullan (Ozark), Gerard Lanvin (Call My Agent!), Daniel Francis (Small Axe), Stanislas Merhar (The Black Book), Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu (Call My Agent!), Laetitia Eido (Fauda), Eriq Ebouaney (Rogue City), Bukky Bukray (Rocks), and Thierry Fremont (Murder in Mind).
With the sudden success of Netflix shows such as Call My Agent! and Lupin, the series order for Liaison highlights the growing appetite for a more diverse stretch of language content on television platforms.
