Produced by Nora Melhli (“The Tunnel”)’s new outfit Alef One, the six-part drama has been ordered by the French public broadcaster France Televisions.
The predominantly English-langauge show is based on a novel by Ghyslain Wattrelos, who lost his wife and two of his three children in the tragedy in 2014, and another book by the investigative journalist Florence de Changy.
The show is driven by a strong creative team, including the showrunner Gilles Bannier (“Spiral”), and writers Tim Loan (“Versailles”) and Laurent Mercier (“Eden”). Nadine Nohr, whose credits include “The Bridge” and “Broadchurch” is executive producing alongside Melhli.
Unfolding across seven countries, “Flight MH370″ is told from multiple perspectives of characters who are based on real people,
