Doctor Foster” is a hit BBC One thriller drama series about a woman who suspects her husband of having an affair and starts investigating, which propels her into a downward spiral. Helene Duchateau and Baptiste Filleul are co-writing the French adaptation, which is being co-produced by BBC France. TF1 is co-developing the six-episode series. BBC Worldwide will handle international sales.
“The best thing about this show is the fact that’s a true genre-bender. It’s not just another show about adultery; it’s a thriller, a mystery and a drama,” said Thomas Anargyros, the Paris-based president and CEO of EuropaCorp TV. Anargyros said the adaptation would closely follow the original but would have a “French flavor” and take place in a provincial town.
The original British version of Doctor Foster aired its first season in the US on Lifetime.
