FIND ME IN PARIS is a premium hit tween series that combines world-class ballet, modern dance, drama and comedy. It follows the story of Lena Grisky, a time-travelling ballet dancer from 1905 Russia trapped in modern day Paris, and the many dilemmas she faces finding her place between two worlds. In Season 3, the stakes are even higher as Lena seeks to find the answers to all the big questions about who she is and why everyone is so interested in her and her timepiece. When Lena and her friends attend a dance workshop in the South of France, they’ll have to fight for the only spot available in the Company. But how will Lena react when the ‘Time Bureau’ will come for her and try to bring her back to 1905 again?
FIND ME IN PARIS is produced by David Michel, Zoé Carrera Allaix, Cecile Lauritano.
