The Israeli series Kvodo by Shlomo Moshiah and Ron Ninio, was aired on television in 2017. The series is about “the life and brilliant career of a judge, Micha Alkoby, [which] was turned upside down the day his son was found guilty of a hit-and-run offence involving a member of the mafia.”
Federation Entertainment and TF1 are co-producing a French adaptation of the series. The new six-episode mini-series will be called Your Honour and feature Kad Merad as the judge Richard Altman and Jean Reno as the powerful mafia baron.
The writers include Léa Fazer (Bienvenue en Suisse), Laurent Vachaud (Munch, TF1) and Anthony Maugendre (Chefs, France 2), the director will be Julius Berg (La forêt, France 3). Filming should start in the spring.
But France is not the only country interested in Kvodo. There is also an American remake being prepared for Showtime. Michelle King and Robert King (creators of The Good Wife, The Good Fight) are writing it while the lead role has been offered to Bryan Cranston (Malcolm, Breaking Bad).
