FIND ME IN PARIS centers on Lena Grisky, a young dancer (and princess) poised to become the next young star of the ballet world in 1905. When her boyfriend Henri gives her an old family necklace, it changes everything. How could he know that it was going to send Lena hurling into the twenty first century?! While a frantic Henri does everything he can to find a way to bring her home, Lena does her best to fit into her new world, and even finds herself enjoying it, loving the fashion, the music, and all the new styles of dance. She makes new friends, including her handsome dance partner Max, who also runs an underground hip hop dance crew.
The 11 million-euros series is being produced on location in the iconic streets of Paris, as well as in the world-famous Garnier Opera House. In a unique partnership, the cast will work with the Opera’s own choreographers, ensuring an authentic and unparalleled standard to the focal dance aspect of the show. With its international characters (dancers and time collectorsare from Canada, India, Germany, France, the UK and US), established showrunners Jill Girling & Lori Matter Welch (Creator of Nickelodeon series Ride), and a singularly original concept, FIND ME IN PARIS is poised to deliver some of the most exciting premium content for teen audiences everywhere.
