Entertainment One has sold dramatic thriller series Cardinal to Canal+ in France. The Billy Campbell and Karine Vanasse-starrer is produced by Sienna Films and eOne in association with Bell Media’s CTV, which has already greenlit the second and third seasons of the series for broadcast in 2017/18. Toby Melling, VP Sales, eOne Television International, brokered the deal. Cardinal’s first season is adapted from the novel Forty Words For Sorrow by Giles Blunt and follows detectives John Cardinal (Campbell) and Lise Delorme (Vanasse) as they attempt to uncover the mystery of what happened to a young girl who is found dead. Season one recently aired on C More in Scandinavia where it became the network’s biggest foreign drama series. It’s set to premiere in the UK on BBC later this year. Season two of the show is set to begin filming this summer, while the third season will shoot this fall.
