HULU Picks up Cottonwood’s FIND ME IN PARIS for US

Cottonwood Media is proud to announce a major new deal with leading American streaming service Hulu for FIND ME IN PARIS, a premium drama series produced by Cottonwood, ZDF and ZDF Enterprises, featuring a time-traveling ballerina.

HULU has acquired the exclusive U.S. streaming rights to the tween half hour drama, joining an A-list global network of broadcasters including France Télévisions (France), Disney (France and Italy), ZDF (Germany), ABC (Australia), and VRT (Belgium).

David Michel, President of Cottonwood Media commented, “We are delighted to start a new relationship with Hulu which has been so original and distinctive in its programming choices. We are confident that FIND ME IN PARIS will be a part of Hulu’s explosive growth in the SVOD industry, while also finding the perfect place to connect with and inspire American kids.

Arne Lohmann, VP ZDFE.junior at ZDF Enterprises adds, “We have been very successful with our teenage live action series on international VoD services, also with dance and ballet-related productions, such as DANCE ACADEMY. Therefore we are convinced that FIND ME IN PARIS will enjoy the same popularity with Hulu’s audiences.

Nicole Keeb, Head of International Co-productions and Acquisitions of ZDF, stated, “We are very excited to be part of this excellent project! We were looking for a ballet show which differs from existing dancing shows, for a long time. FIND ME IN PARIS has that special twist thanks to the time-travel element. It will be exciting and romantic, a perfect mix.

In a TV series first, FIND ME IN PARIS will take place against the backdrop, and with the participation, of the world-renowned Garnier Opera House in Paris. Featuring mainly ballet as well as hip hop, the cast will work with both the choreographers from the Garnier, and a world-renowned hip hop collective, ensuring that the dance sequences – central to the heart of the show – will be both authentic and of extremely high standards.

The creators and Executive Producers of FIND ME IN PARIS are Jill Girling & Lori Mather-Welch, creators of Nickelodeon’s hit series RIDE. The show is produced by industry veterans David Michel, Zoé Carrera Allaix, Cecile Lauritano and Pascal Breton, along with line producer Leila Smith. The show is being distributed by Cottonwood Media’s sister company Federation Kids & Family and ZDF Enterprises.
