Hungary doubles for Paris in Rowan Atkinson's Maigret

Rowan AtkinsonA major new two-part adaptation of Georges Simenon’s Maigret novels is heading to shoot in Hungary with Rowan Atkinson in the title role.

The feature length films have been ordered by ITV, and are produced by UK-based Ealing Studios and Maigret Productions. Maigret Sets a Trap, adapted from Maigret Tend Un Piège, and Maigret’s Dead Man, from Maigret Et Son Mort, are set in 1950s Paris, with Atkinson playing the legendary and laconic detective with the trademark pipe.

Stewart Harcourt has written the new episodes; he also executive produces alongside Barnaby Thompson, Ben Latham-Jones and John Simenon, who said: “Maigret has been part of our family for almost nine decades, and we are bringing together one of the best known characters in world literature with one of the greatest international stars.”

Shooting in due to begin in September. For more on filming in Hungary, head over to our production guide.
