Canal Plus' "Maison Close"

Music Box Films has scooped up US and Canadian rights to the first two seasons of sumptuous bodice-ripping drama "Maison Close," the French TV series set in a 19th century Parisian bordello, created by Jacques Ouaniche and a hit on Canal Plus.

Here's the official synopsis:

Jemima West, star of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, leads a cast of gorgeous characters trapped by circumstance and their societies limited options, in this dark, riveting exploration of desire and power.  By turns both erotic and political, MAISON CLOSE re-imagines age-old themes—and the world’s oldest profession—in revolutionary ways that “would make even a veteran of the 50 Shades of Grey series blush.” (The Times)  

In late 2012, it was announced that HBO took North American rights to the series, and had an English-language remake in the works.
