‘Tһe Wаlkinɡ Deаd’ Mаker Skybound Bасks Indie Run By Former Frаnсe Télévisions Commissioner

Skybound has taken a minority investment in and entered into a strategic partnership with Scenario42, which was previously called 247Max. The news comes a week after Skybound entered the Japanese space for the first time as Robert Kirkman and David Alpert’s outfit continues to expand internationally.

Scenario42 produced French drama Polar Park, which launched on Arte last month. Upcoming shows include The Anomaly penned by Hervé Le Tellier, which is being adapted for TV by filmmaker Antonin Baudry, art thriller The Genius, co-produced with Laurence Fishburne’s Cinema Gypsy Productions, and The Storyteller, a French-language prestige TV movie.

Albouy launched 247 with Oscar-nominated producers Xavier Rigault and Marc-Antoine Robert of sister company 247 Films in 2019. He is a former commissioner for France Télévisions, where he was head of drama co-productions.

“I’m thrilled to dig into Skybound’s vast catalog of IP and continue its legacy of globally acclaimed work,” he said. “I love working directly with creators of all nationalities and Skybound’s library of IP across mediums presents endless opportunities for people to enjoy content however they choose.”

Skybound Linear Content Managing Partner Rick Jacobs said Albouy’s “taste, relationships and experience with co-productions make him the perfect candidate to partner with.”

The company is the first in France to have been backed by Skybound. It also owns a majority stake in Nordic outfit Sagafilm and game financing company 5th Planet Games.
