French Political Thriller Les Hommes de l'Ombre being Adapted for US Television

Les Hommes de l'Ombre

Endemol Studios is adapting the French political thriller Les Hommes de l'Ombre ("The Men of Shadows" or maybe "The Shadow Men") for US television under the working title of Kingmakers. The 6-episode series aired earlier this year on France 2, with a second season having already been commissioned.

The storyline follows the aftermath of the assassination of the President of France. An early election is scheduled, and two men are vying for the position. But the key roles are the men behind the men, the "shadow men", who will do anything to get their respective candidate elected.

"Les Hommes de l'Ombre offers a unique and ambitious format to develop a relevant, timeless and compelling American drama with original characters that bring the audience behind the scenes of high-stakes politics, starting with a presidential political campaign," said Endemol's CEO Philippe Maigret.
