The new original scripted drama series “The Returned” is in development by A&E Network.

Details, provided by A&E, are as follows:

“The Returned” is based on the popular French suspense series adapted by Fabrice Gobert and inspired by the feature film, Les Revenants, directed by Robin Campillo.  “The Returned” focuses on a small town that is turned upside down when several local people, who have been long presumed dead suddenly reappear, having not aged and unaware of their own fatality. As they attempt to resume their lives, strange phenomena and gruesome murders begin to occur.

“The Returned” is co-produced by A+E Studios (“Houdini”) and FremantleMedia North America (“American Idol,” “The X Factor”) in association with Haut et Court TV SAS, the producer of the French series, for A&E Network.  FremantleMedia will distribute the series internationally, excluding the U.S. and Canada, which will be distributed by A+E Studios. The executives overseeing the project for FremantleMedia North America are Thom Beers and Craig Cegielski and Bob DeBitetto for A+E Studios.
