Residence Television HBO doubles French television frenzy and buys “Laetitia” mystery miniseries

HBO is going French, baby!

The cable operator sees the hits “Call My Agent” and “Lupine” on Netflix, not to mention “Emily in Paris”. So it’s time to get into the game.

On August 30, they will launch the limited French mystery series, “Laetitia”, about a girl who has gone missing and may be dead. It is written by Antoine Lacomblez, and written and directed by Oscar-winning director Jean-Xavier de Lestrade. We don’t know anything about these people, but they may soon become our obsession.

HBO is really doubling down on these limited series. At the moment, “White Lotus” occupies a lot of time in our heads.
