Distributor FremantleMedia Enterprises has acquired rights to adapt French zombie series “Les Revenants” for the global market, with the working title of “They Came Back,” reports Variety.
The English-language version will be produced by Brit screenwriter Paul Abbott, whose credits include “State of Play” and “Shameless,” and his shingle AbbottVision.
““Les Revenants” focuses on a group of men and women returning to their homes in an Alpine village. What they do not yet know is that they have all been dead for several years, and no one is expecting them back.”
Originally developed as a film, “Les Revenants” was adapted for TV by producers Haut et Court for pay TV company Canal Plus.
The series bowed last fall when, according to FME, it averaged 1.4 million viewers across eight 60-minute episodes.
