Each year, the leading television producers from around the world showcase their programs and compete to be recognized at the prestigious International Emmy® Awards, traditionally held in New York City.
The International Emmys celebrate the best in international television. This year, among 56 nominees across 14 categories and spanning 20 countries, France will be represented by four TV series and films.
Discover the eight French nominees:
“Le Flambeau : Les Aventuriers de Chupacabra” (Entre 2 & 4 / Making Prod / STUDIOCANAL)
In the first season of LA FLAMME, our bachelor Marc had to choose his heart’s desire out of many contestants. He was (almost) the only man and the focus of it all… Season 2 shakes it all up – with the suits and gowns swapped for swimwear! This is more than just a new season, this is a whole new show – with Marc becoming as much a contestant as the others this time around, as he joins a team of adventurers trying to survive on the idyllic island of Chupacabra…
Genre: Comedy, Adventure
“The Time Hotel: Dalida” (Mediawan / Ardimages)
Thirty-five years after her death, Dalida remains ever-present in French hearts and minds. With the help of cutting-edge technology, enabling actors to be given the faces and voices of celebrities who are no longer with us, Thierry Ardisson paints her portrait from the famous Hotel Meurice, Paris.
Type: TV programme
“A Very Ordinary World” by Ovidie (Magneto Prod. / STUDIOCANAL)
Romain is a 18-year-old student who wants to become a porn actor, in a dystopian alternative world where women hold all the power. Romain will have to make a place for himself in this world, which is exceedingly difficult for men: a world of twisted auteurs, mistreatment by female colleagues, and where you become out-of-date as soon as you turn 35. A VERY ORDINARY WORLD puts a high-concept twist on the porn industry to deliver a scathing critique of the macho world we live in – as Romain tries to break through by confronting the gaze of others.
Type: TV movie
Genre: Comedy, Drama
“Infiniti” (Empreinte Digitale / Federation Studios)
The ISS, the International Space Station has gone silent. The crew is in distress. Simultaneously, a wax-covered decapitated body is found on a roof in Kazakhstan. Positive identification leaves no room for doubt: the body belongs to an American astronaut currently on a mission on the ISS. A French astronaut, Anna Zarathi, dismissed from the space program, and a Kazakh cop, Isaak Turgun, cast aside by his superiors, set out to solve this mysterious paradox…
Genre: Thriller, Science fiction
