While the first two episodes of season 2 of HIP were unveiled last week in a preview showing at the 2022 Séries Mania Festival, season 1 is currently breaking records with nearly 175 million views worldwide.
Produced by Pierre Laugier and Anthony Lancret of Itinéraire Productions and Jean Nainchrik and Bérengère Legrand of Septembre Productions, the TV show is distributed by Newen Connect.
Broadcast last April on the television channel TF1, HIP is the most-watched fiction program by the French viewers in 2021. The show became the third most-watched French TV show in TV history (after Dolmen and The Count of Monte Cristo) and the first most-watched of the past 15 years. Starring Audrey Fleurot and Mehdi Nebbou, the show follows the adventures of a vibrant duo of investigators.
This audience success has allowed original French creations to spread throughout the world. To this day, HIP has been sold in more than 90 territories including Japan (AXN Mystery), Canada (Quebecor), Australia and New Zealand (Acorn), Germany (ARD Channels - Studio Hamburg), Italy (Rai), Spain and Andorra (Antena 3), Portugal and Portuguese-speaking African countries (AXN Sony), Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg (Disney+, NPO), Switzerland (RTS), Poland, Slovakia, the Baltic and Balkan countries (Disney Channels, OTE, NOVA, Marzika, NBCU, Sia All Media, Lifetime).
Before the upcoming broadcast of season 2 on TF1 channel, new exclusive images are currently being unveiled at the MipTv in Cannes. "With nearly 175 million views already, season 1 of HIP has established itself as one of the biggest tv show of 2021. Our ambition with season 2 is to conquer new fans of Morgane/Audrey Fleurot throughout the world and to contribute to the influence of French creation internationally", Rodolphe Buet, CEO of Newen Connect.
