” The banner, which is headquartered in the Parisian start-up campus Station F, was founded by Valérie Billaut, Stéphane Cadoch and Hugues Laigneau. Billaut, the banner’s CEO, spent 20 years working at Canal Plus and M6; Cadoch previously headed TF1 Distribution; and Laigneau also worked at the TF1 Group in the advertising sales division. Now with VIS Social Impact, we will harness the power of storytelling to challenge stereotypes, shift perceptions and create meaningful change in the critical areas of climate, equity and health,” said Raffaele Annecchino, president and CEO of ViacomCBS Networks International. The series is being penned by Clement Marchand and Milan Mauger, who recently partnered up on the script of “Tous pourris” and “La professionelle” for Pathé. I did a way better job at it but, balancing going after her dreams and having to raise a young daughter, that is something that I can relate to and I just loved it. Marchand has worked for Canal Plus’s popular talk show Le Grand Journal and the satirical program les Guignols.” JC Acosta, president of ViacomCBS International Studios and ViacomCBS Networks Americas, lauded Georgia Arnold as “a leader in the social responsibility space with a proven track record of driving groundbreaking social-impact initiatives for our brand,” adding: “Creating this division is a natural evolution for ViacomCBS and further strengthens our commitment to producing best-in-class content that addresses the issues that matter most to our audiences around the world. Mauger is an actor-turned-scribe who notably starred in “Sans Rancune” with Thierry Lhermitte and directed the short “L’adjoint avait une barbe. “Will your husband like to have you give the horse away?” Fletcher recalled asking the woman, shocked.
” Laigneau said “Mousquetaires” will be different from other projects adapted by Dumas’ masterpiece because it will be a modern tale grounded in today’s France. In three hourlong episodes, it will see Harriman travel around the world to “uncover the stories behind some of the most powerful images and art forms that have defined a moment and a movement,” the company said."It was something that I've never experienced, reading a pilot that just felt so good you know what I mean? It read so good, it felt so good, I could see it, I was inspired by it, I was gitty about it, and I couldn't even believe that it was being presented to me," she said. “We’re adapting the story to today’s society and looking at the values of loyalty and friendship are coming through nowadays,” said the executive. “Mouquetaires” is set in a near future, where the president of France, a woman, has just been murdered.” “It is an honor to be among the first commissions for VIS Social Impact and to have an opportunity to present the power of photography and art to a global audience on Paramount+,” said Harriman, who took the black-and-white. The four musketeers, who are an elite squad, set off to uncover the conspiracy which led to the assassination and handle the ensuing crisis."We talked about it first, then I read the script and I was like 'How did he do this?' It was so good and I loved my character so much that I was like, I want to be a part of this," she recalled. Although the series will have a political backdrop, Laigneau said the idea was to create an entertaining series with some depth. In fact, married white women had no legal right to their own possessions or property in most states, but that was just the tip of the iceberg.
“Mousquetaires” will also boast a diverse cast to reflect French society, said Laigneau. DNA of Dumas’ classic will be reflected through the emphasis on the values shared by the musketeers and the enthronement’s ritual of new members. "I was actually just talking about how organic it was [at] our very first dance rehearsal. The project will be put together collectively by the Marchand and Mauger who will likely collaborate with other writers. Speaking of the project’s tone and genre, Laigneau said it will be a mix of “Kingsman” and “Charlotte” with “lots of epic James Bond-style action scenes.” Taleseed is currently developing a dozen of other projects and recently delivered the short format series “Damoiselle” for TV5Mondeplus. I've always admired [Brandy's] music so I was like, I want to be down for real! And obviously Nadine came into this without a musical background but she's killing it and so I felt really organically connected with these women. Yet for most women, getting married was the only way to support oneself.
