Benjamin (“Marie Antoinette”) stars in “The Disappeared of the Black Forest,” a gritty French thriller starring Hélène de Vaugerolles (“Balthazar”), Gregory Vitosi (“St. Tropez,” “Spiral”) and Chiqui Carrillo (“The Lost Baptist”).
Commissioned by TF1, The Black Forest Disappeared was co-produced by Banijay Studios France, Fiction’Air, Belga Productions and RTBF. The outstanding drama will be distributed internationally by Banijay Rights.
“The Black Forest Disappeared” is set in the heart of the Black Forest, at a bi-national military base near the Franco-German border, where 12 bodies, all men, are found in a mass grave. The victims are both French and German, with the murders taking place over a period of three decades. Judge Camille Hartmann, played by Hélène de Vaugerolles, is involved in the case, as her memory has been damaged after a car accident. However, this shocking discovery brings back memories that Hartmann thought were buried. Meanwhile, veteran French officer Franz Agerland (Chiki Carrillo) teams up with young German police officer Eric Maes (Gregory Vitosi) to investigate the case.
“The Disappeared of the Black Forest” is a thriller, said Carole Della Valle, executive producer at Banijay Studios France, with excellent production values that give the drama a cinematic feel.
Dela Vella continued, “With a big and well-known name here in France and internationally, we are confident that the drama will engage audiences on TF1 and beyond with the support of Banijay Rights. »
Fiction’ Air, part of Banijay, is the production facility founded by Nagui, one of France’s most popular television hosts and producers. Nagy said “Disappeared from the Black Forest” underscores “Fiction’Air’s ambition to present new series both nationally and internationally”.
