Sundance Now is premiering the French supernatural-mystery thriller series Moloch in the US and Canada in June 2021.
Created by Arnaud Malherbe (who also directs) and Marion Festraëts, the team behind the hit French drama series Chefs, fantasy thriller Moloch explores a series of unexplained occurrences while questioning the excesses of our society and the birth of violence.
In a labyrinthine industrial seaside town in the north of France, random people spontaneously combust and no one knows if these events are due to suicide, murder, or a supernatural phenomenon. To investigate this mystery, Louise (Marine Vacth, Black Box, Young & Beautiful), an ambitious but troubled young journalist, joins forces with Gabriel (Olivier Gourmet, Midnight Sun, Captain Marleau), a respected psychiatrist who carries the grief of his son’s death.
Then six fiery letters start to turn up as graffiti on city walls like a signature adjacent to the deaths: “MOLOCH,” the ancient god of sacrifice. In order to get to the truth, Louise and Gabriel must embark on a terrifying journey to the heart of their own personal hell — at the risk of getting burned themselves.
The six-episode thriller costars Laurent Capelluto (Into the Night, Black Spot), Soufiane Guerrab (Lupin), Jan Hammenecker (Witnesses), Arnaud Valois (BPM (Beats Per Minute)), Alice Verset (The Bouncer), and Marc Zinga (Spiral).
A production of Calt Studio, Arte France, and Belga Production, Moloch had its world premiere as a competitor at the 2020 Canneseries TV Festival, where it was awarded best screenplay.
