Are you Marianne? - The French terror Netflix series Marianne is both funny and scary, in equal parts. The plot revolves around Emma, a rich, famous and particularly neurotic writer. Back to her hometown Elden, she discovers that the stories about a witch that she writes in her horror novels are also happening in the real world.

Created by Samuel Bodin, the cast is led by Victoire Du Bois as Emma Larsimon, Lucie Boujenah is her assistant Camille, Alban Lenoir is the Inspector Rauman, Tiphaine Daviot, Ralph Amoussou and Bellamine Abdelmalek are her childhood friends and Mireille Herbstmeyer plays the scary Mrs Daugeron.

Marianne was filmed on location in Paris and Brittany (Bretagne), the historic province in northwestern France. The fictional village of Elden is actually the charming port of Doëlan near Quimperlé:
