German distributor Red Arrow Studios International has acquired worldwide distribution rights to the upcoming English-language remake of the French-Canadian anthology drama series. Plan B.
Produced by KOTV for CBC in Canada, the series will star Patrick J Adams (Combinations) and Karine Vanasse (Cardinal, Pan Am) and is based on the French-language series of the same name, also produced by KOTV for Séries+ and ICI Radio-Canada.
The 6 x 60 minute remake is a psychological drama following a man on a desperate and relentless quest to save his relationship – and by extension, his entire world. It will debut in the winter of 2023.
Jean-François Asselin and Jacques Drolet, who wrote the original version, return to pen this new adaptation alongside Lynne Kamm.
The CBC version marks the third remake of Plan B, which also has local versions in France on TF1 and in Belgium on Streamz. The fourth season of the original French-Canadian version is currently in production for Radio-Canada and its digital platform Tou.tv Extra.
Rodrigo Herrera Ibarguengoytia, senior director of acquisitions and scripted co-productions at Red Arrow Studios International, said the anthology series has “the flexibility to be adapted to a variety of different genres – from romance to crime to family drama – and resonates with wide audiences in any territory.
