New talent announced and principal photography scheduled for July.
Cottonwood Media, a division of Federation Entertainment, has kicked off production on Season Three of the acclaimed live-action series FIND ME IN PARIS. With principal photography scheduled for July 22nd, the new season will include a further 26 half hours, bringing the premium tween series to a total number of 78 episodes.
Season Three will welcome two new rising stars: British actors Isabelle Allen, who features in the recent Netflix series Safe and played little ‘Cosette’ in hit film Les Misérables and Jake Swift who starred in Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism (alongside Joan Collins, Emily Watson, Celia Imrie), and the TV mini-series New Worlds.
Filmed in Paris and at the iconic Garnier Opera House, the new season will also travel to new locations including the French Riviera (where the students participate in a prestigious international dance workshop) and Brussels.
“FIND ME IN PARIS has attracted an incredible fan base in such a short space of time which has led to impressive ratings with international broadcasters and media platforms worldwide. The new season will push the boat out even further with exciting storylines, new characters, compelling dance sequences, and new locations that we have no doubt will continue to thrill and entertain viewers,” commented David Michel, President of Cottonwood Media and Managing Director of Federation Kids & Family.
FIND ME IN PARIS is a premium hit tween series that combines world-class ballet, modern dance, drama and comedy. It follows the story of Lena Grisky, a time-travelling ballet dancer from 1905 Russia trapped in modern day Paris, and the many dilemmas she faces finding her place between two worlds. In Season Three, the stakes are even higher as Lena seeks to find the answers to all the big questions about who she is and why everyone is so interested in her and her timepiece. When Lena and her friends attend a dance workshop in the South of France, they’ll have to fight for the only spot available in the Company. But how will Lena react when the Time Bureau will come for her and try to bring her back to 1905 again?
