It's certainly not news that American TV shows travel, and air in other countries, whether dubbed or subtitled in each individualy country's national language (if it's not English).

But I thought this was worth mentioning, since this was a series that got lots of interest here on S&A, so I figured it was news you could use; but also for our readers in France, if you weren't already aware that season 1 and the upcoming season 2 of Shonda Rhimes' Scandal (starring Kerry Washington) was coming to your neck of the woods (assuming you haven't already watched it on some other format, whether legal or not)!

French premium pay TV channel Canal Plus has picked up the series for its 2013 slate.

Also acquired by Canal Plus is the 4-part BBC serial Inside Men (another series we've covered), which stars Ashley Walters

The series focuses on four men connected to one bank, who must decide if they are willing to take a risk that could either leave them set for life, or doing life sentences.

Scandal is said to be one of very few USA shows that Canal Plus picked up.

Other notable pickups include HBO's Game of Thrones, and Showtime's Homeland.

    Nice, especially after that "Think Like A Man" supposed debacle when the film went to France.
