France TV Slash will soon shoot a collection of units on the theme of the end of the world: “La Meute”, “Carpe Diem”, and “Attack of the Living Trash”. With the cast Zoé Marchal (“Skam France”), Roxane Bret (“Sam”), or even Omar Mebrouk (“HPI”).
Known for its daring and resolutely modern teen series, such as Skam France, Mental, or Stalk, France TV Slash is about to switch to science fiction and anticipation with three new units of 60 minutes each that will form the collection “The end of the world”.
This Tuesday, May 25, France Télévisions’ digital platform for young adults will launch the filming in the Paris region of La Meute, the first of these three fictional events, which will be followed by Carpe Diem and Attack of the Living Trash.
Inspired, among others, according to France TV Slash, by the Mayan predictions which announced that December 21, 2012 would mark the end of the world or be the scene of a similar catastrophe, these three TV films “will question us on how we would behave if we were threatened or had experienced a cataclysmic situation “.

Or predators in disguise?
