Los Angeles, February 13, 2012 – China is set to embrace French culture this month as Metan Development Group’s flagship program Hello! Hollywood debuts a month-long series of lifestyle segments that shine the spotlight on France and the European way of life.
Seductively French (SF), the producer of media content that is aspirational, inspiring audiences to celebrate their own "joie de vivre", produced the segments in and around Paris in October 2011, with the aim to celebrate and explore the European lifestyle.
On February 11, the first Seductively French segments debuted on Metan’s weekly entertainment news series Hello! Hollywood, marking a unique extension of the SF brand in China. Segments will feature award-winning French film composer Eric Serra, beautiful crossover songstress Emma Shapplin, celebrity chef Gilles Epie and haute couture designer Nabil Hayari.
“Historically, China has been greatly influenced by French arts, culture and traditions,” said Larry Namer, President/CEO, Metan. “We’re delighted to introduce to viewers of Hello! Hollywood weekly Seductively French segments that celebrate one’s passion for France and European culture.”
Hello! Hollywood first premiered in September 2009 and today reaches a potential one billion viewers on 40 stations in China and six in the United States and Canada, and an estimated four million viewers each week via China’s top Internet portals, including Tencent.com. In the United States, the series airs in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Central California, New York and New Jersey to multicultural networks LA 18 and Crossings TV. Hello!
