This was announced on the inaguration of company’s new offices in Paris, as the American platform has announced that it will increase its production of series and films in France.

As FranceInfo reports, among the new projects unveiled, there is Bigbug, a film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. This futuristic comedy will count in its casting Elsa Zylberstein, Isabelle Nanty and Manu Payet.

The fantasy series Mortal will have a second season. And Julien Leclercq (Braqueurs, La terre et le sang) will direct an action film, Sentinelle, with Olga Kurylenko.

In addition, the platform will strengthen its partnerships in training in the audiovisual and cinema professions, with establishments such as the École des Gobelins and la Fémis, or the 1000 Faces association.

The boss of Netflix revealed in an interview published by the weekly L’Express that Netflix now had 6.7 million subscribers in France (and many more users, accounts being very often shared by several), on a total of 158 million worldwide. This encourages him to strengthen his production of French content, to meet the requirements of the local public, FranceInfo reports.
