George Clooney will adapt the French series The Office of Legends in the USA

New consecration for Éric Rochant – if one more was needed – the creator of the series Le bureau des legendes, his series completed in 2020 after five seasons broadcast on Canal + will be adapted by actor George Clooney. It will be called The Department.

Best French series for AVCesar (with Ten percent) and third best series of the decade for the New York Times in 2019, The Legends Office could well become the new Homeland for the US channel Showtime. It is in any case the wish of George Clooney, who will be both director and producer of the remake The Department.

Who to replace Malotru?

Launched in 2015, the series, a hyper-documented and tense incursion into the professional and private lives of the “clandestines” piloted remotely by the BDL (the “Legends Office”, see The Legends Office seasons 1 to 5, ultimate season directed by Jacques Audiard), will also be produced by the original French studios, The Originals Production and Federation Studios. It is hard to imagine the meticulous Éric Rochant letting his secret agents slip away internationally without close supervision…

We don't yet know who the new US version agents will be, but after Mathieu Kassovitz (code name Malotru), Sara Giraudeau, Florence Loiret-Caille, Jonathan Zaccaï, Mathieu Amalric, Artus, Jean-Pierre Darroussin and Léa Drucker, you'll have to hit hard. Source: Deadline
