Zodiak cuts drama deal with former TF1 drama boss

Karine_EvrardThe French division of Zodiak Media has inked a production and development deal with Karine Evrard, the former TF1 drama exec who recently set up her own indie.

Evrard was senior VP of drama at the French commercial broadcaster before leaving to set up Blush Film.

The fledgling indie will develop scripted series with Zodiak France, which comprises production banners Marathon, Marathon Media, Tele Images, GTV, ALP, KM and Mona Lisa.

Evrard is currently developing projects with Marathon’s Yann Chassard (Summer Camp). The pair are working up comedy, dramedy and cop show ideas.

Having been a producer, Evrard started out at TF1 in the kids department in 1994. She joined the broadcaster’s drama department in 2008, leaving late last year to form Blush.
