After a successful international festival adventure (Audience Award at Séries Mania) and outstanding rating in our country, Hotel Beau Sejour will be streamed outside our national borders on Netflix starting the 16thof March. The series will first be made available outside West-Europe and added later on to the gamma of Netflix in, among others, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, and Germany.
The streaming giant already made an offer last year on Hotel Beau Sejour by De Mensen, long before the first episode was broadcasted here.
France and Germany
Hotel Beau Sejour will also be broadcasted starting March the 2nd 2017 in France and Germany at ARTE. In both countries, the series will be dubbed, in Germany by the name of Zimmer 108. It marks the first time a Flemish series will be broadcasted on the renowned channel, which is known for purchasing qualitative fiction (The Killing, Borgen).
Hotel Beau Sejour
The series follows Kato Hoeven, a young girl who sets out to solve her own murder case. Her biggest obstacle: she’s dead. But if she’s dead, how come she still walks around? Nobody can see or hear her. Along the way she discovers 5 people still can see and hear her. Some of them she knows, others she doesn’t. What exactly happened on the night of her death? And why are there 5 seers, why them specifically? This raw, whodunit flirts with the barriers of reality and is set in a small village where a lot of secrets lie dormant under the surface. Lynn Van Royen (Marsman, Brothers United) plays the leading role as Kato. Other roles are filled by Johan Van Assche, Kris Cuppens, Inge Paulussen, Jan Hammenecker, Joren Seldeslachts, Barbara Sarafian, Reinhilde Decleir, Roel Vanderstukken and Maarten Nulens. Hotel Beau Sejour is written by Bert Van Dael (Clan, Rotkop), Benjamin Sprengers (Connie & Clyde) and Sanne Nuyens (De Vijfhoek, Dura Lex), and was directed by Nathalie Basteyns (Jes, Clan) and Kaat Beels (Swooni, Clan).
This Sunday Eén will broadcast the second last episode of the series.Hotel Beau Sejour can also be seen on streaming service vrtnu.
