Our ambition.

Christophe Thoral

Leading French producer Lagardère Studios has embarked on a path of global expansion to reach new audiences, create synergies and develop shared content strategies. Having boosted our presence in Spanish-language countries through our Spanish subsidiary Grupo Boomerang, and in northern Europe by investing in Aito Media (Finland) and Skyhigh TV (Netherlands), today Lagardère Studios is a key player in independent production and distribution across Europe. In pursuing this dynamic strategy, our goal is to strengthen our position as an indispensable partner to content broadcasters in every country.

Everywhere, Lagardère Studios offers clients a strong partnership, with them at every step, and always one step ahead of changes in the audiovisual world by covering all production models: local productions, international coproductions, format adaptations, controlled-budget industrial films and corporate and digital creations.

Through our program distribution activity, Lagardère Studios actively brings forward high-end drama series and documentaries across the whole of Europe. The wealth and diversity of our catalogue is a major asset in these days of ever-growing demand for new content.

For all this, Lagardère Studios must draw fresh talent to offer unique, innovative creations and formats, bringing together the best professionals in the field with a single goal: to offer the very best in audiovisual production.

The society Image & Compagnie

The production company Image & Compagnie, run by Nicole Collet (Procirep Producers’ Prize 2014), mainly produces “high-quality” fictional drama.

The rigorous editorial and artistic policy that is implemented both for the quality of the screenwriting as for that of the direction, has led to Image & Compagnie being rewarded by the attribution of numerous prizes.

Most recently, we can note: five seasons of MAFIOSA (Canal+); 3xMANON and MANON 20 ANS 6x52’ (Arte)

(3xManon: Fipa d’Or 2014, Special mention Prix Europa, Prix du Syndicat Français de la Critique de Cinéma… Manon 20 ans: Fipa d’Or 2017, 5 prizes at the Festival de Luchon, Prix du Syndicat de la Critique de Cinéma…); UN FLIC 13x90’ (France 2).

One-off dramas too, on hard-hitting social questions such as RAPACE (Arte) the story of a trader; PRESQUE COMME LES AUTRES (France 2) about autism; LA CONSOLATION (France 3) based on Flavie Flament’s story of childhood rape (Best TV film at the Festival de la Fiction TV La Rochelle 2017, Prix Duo du Film Français, Prix Enfance Majuscule, Prix PFDM 2018 “For Women in Media”).

Soon to appear: UNE ILE 6x52’ series (Arte); PARIS-BREST 1x90’ (Arte) based on the novel by Tanguy Viel.

Image & Cie often chooses to work with talented screenwriters and directors from the world of cinema, such as Amos Gitaï, Eric Rochant, Jean-Xavier de Lestrade, Claire Devers, Magaly Richard-Serrano, Philippe Lioret…
