Europe Images International, a film and television distribution subsidiary of Lagardère Entertainment managed by Emmanuelle Bouilhaguet, is delighted to announce that it will now be handling the exclusive distribution on all media of the hit Canal + series airing on ‘Le Grand Journal‘.

The pitch is as short as the length of its episodes (1’45”):

You’re born, and then you die. In between, life happens. So…just the story of a guy to whom life is happening.

The hero of the series, played by Kyan Khojandi, is just your average 30-year-old unemployed bachelor living the ordinary daily grind.

This fast-paced series is produced by My Box Productions (Harry Tordjman) for Canal +. Writer/directors Kyan Khojandi and Bruno Muschio were inspired most by movies such as Snatch, Fight Club and The Rules of Attraction.

Unanimously praised by both critics and audiences, the series gave Canal + some of its biggest audiences, with over 2.5 million television viewers. On the web it’s a hit, with 1 million views a day. And soon it will have

2 million fans on Facebook. So…go on, ‘like’ it!
