Headed by Jean-Pierre Guérin and Véronique Marchat, GMT Productions has producedover 400 TV programs in all genres and has for years been at the top of the list of scripted program producers in terms of volume of hours.
GMT also produces feature films as a result of various encounters between Jean-Pierre Guérin and directors with unique perspectives. In the wake of the success of Mammuth in 2010, GMT is again meeting the challenge of eclecticism by releasing two movies this year : Le Grand Soir, a groundbreaking and off-the-wall comedy by Benoît Delépine and Gustave Kervern, starring Benoît Poelvoorde and Albert Dupontel, and Les Adieux à la Reine, an historical drama directed by Benoît Jacquot starring Léa Seydoux, Diane Krüger and Xavier Beauvois (the film was chosen to open the 2012 Berlin Film Festival and is in official competition).
On Television, GMT continues to attract loyal audiences to its three flagship series: Julie Lescaut on TF1, Boulevard du Palais on France 2 and Famille d’Accueil on France 3.
Since it was created, GMT has made a name for itself thanks to signature dramas like Monte-Cristo (TF1 - 1998), Les Misérables (TF1 - 2000), Napoléon (France 2 - 2001/2002), Ali Baba (TF1 - 2007). Impelled by the desire to constantly innovate, GMT is exploring all fictional genres from fantastic thrillers (TF1 - David Nolande) to the behind-the-scenes world of politics (Mort d’un Président –Death of a President - France 3) to significant events and famous people in history (Jean Moulin – France 2, Dans la tête du Tueur - TF1 …).
More recently, GMT once again through its daring won over audiences thanks to Flics, its hard-hitting series aired on TF1. Created by Olivier Marchal and starring Frédéric Diefenthal, Yann Sundberg and Catherine Marchal, Season 2 this year won the Prize for Best Series at the La Rochelle Festival as well as at Globes de Cristal, an event organized by French Print journalists.
In 2012, GMT is again casting TF1 in the limelight with Merlin, a comedy written by Michel Delgado and Karine de Démo and directed by Stéphane Kappes in which Gérard Jugnot, Joséphine de Meaux, Marilou Berry and Michel Vuillermoz humorously revisit the legend of the celebrated enchanter.
The company is also pursuing its international expansion with the shooting of the series Odysseus for ARTE ( co-produced with Making Prod), an ancient epic with a cast of European actors.
