Drama Line-up


Acquisition of the series BEYOND THE GRAVE


France tv distribution is happy to announce its acquisition of the series Beyond the grave - A new Adamsberg’s case, produced by Passion Films and directed by Josée Dayan.

Adapted by Emmanuel Carrère, based on the novel Sur la dalle by Fred Vargas, the series stars Yvan Attal, Louis-Do de Lencquesaing, Sylvie Testud, Virginie Ledoyen, Olivier De Benoist, Micha Lescot and Eric Caravaca.

Distributed worldwide by France tv distribution, the series will be launched at the MIPTV 2024.



In this new investigation, Inspector Adamsberg's attention is drawn to a murder in a village in Brittany. The main suspect is a local figure, a descendant of the famous writer Chateaubriand. Convinced of his innocence, Adamsberg takes charge of the investigation, joined by his entire Parisian team, as the death toll rises.

Faced with local legends and the eccentricity of the inhabitants, Adamsberg will have to give free rein to his spirit of deduction to succeed in solving the enigma.



 Julia Schulte (SVP International Sales at France tv distribution):

"We are really enthousiastic to announce the return of Inspector Adamsberg, with this very special case BEYOND THE GRAVE. The mini-series has all ingredients to satisfy light-crime-lovers around the globe: a mysterious case set in a remote village in Brittany, bizarre village inhabitants behaving strangely, an eccentric suspect and, in the middle of it all, the Parisian Inspector Adamsberg, played by French actor Yvan Attal."
