04/02/2002

Marathon has filmed the pilot episode of a new drama series of 52-minute episodes for M6 (France) entitled RENDEZ-VOUS (French working title).
Shot on location in Marseilles, France, the series is set in a spacious warehouse of the Port Authority converted into a all-purpose party space for a group of young adults. In order to save their new ‘home away from home' from imminent destruction by the city, a young woman, her sister and a designer friend start a business around their new line of clothes for kids and set up shop in the warehouse.
Directed by Franck Buchter, the shoot brought together a dynamic team of actors: Philippe Bas, Mélanie Maudran, Andrey Hamm, Serge Gesquière, Samira Draa and Laurent Salsac. Regis Vallon was production manager and Marianne Chénet was artistic director.
