French production company Marathon (a Zodiak Media company) has secured remake rights to Red Arrow International’s multi-award winning dramedy “Danni Lowinski”. In Germany, the hit series is currently in its fourth season.
Jérôme Vignac, Producer at Marathon, says ‘”When I came across this format at Mipcom, I straight away secured the rights for the French market. Funny, sharp, popular, modern… ‘Danni Lowinski’ is the kind of comedy we need right now. It was clearly obvious to me!’’
Aline Avedikian, Regional Sales Manager France at Red Arrow International, says “’Danni Lowinski’ is the perfect series for a remake with its clear concept and proven success. Danni fights for what she believes in. A modern woman – I can’t wait to see her on screen in France.”
