Between 1995 and 2008, Saint-Tropez hosted the shooting of the longest French series in 52-minute format and, above all, the most exported in the world... SOUS LE SOLEIL !
The series "Sous le soleil" was born from the will and imagination of two producers, Pascal Breton and Olivier BREMONT. This pair sensed the trend at the beginning of the 90s, at a time when American series such as "Beverly Hills" or "Melrose Place" were very popular.

With idyllic settings, an intoxicating theme song by Pascal Obispo and rhythmic scenarios, the success of the series was assured from the very first episodes. It is carried by the three main female roles of Laure (Bénédicte Delmas), Caroline (Adeline Blondieau) and Jessica (Tonya Kinzinger) who grow up with the series.

The scripts deal with human relationships, love, friendship and social issues, always in a dream setting, warm and sunny, even if the filming takes place in winter!

Sous le Soleil has an incredible longevity of more than 12 years and 480 episodes, 3 million spectators per episode, as well as economic spin-offs for the Gulf region.

This new exhibition will plunge you into the atmosphere and the universe created around the three heroines, but also behind the scenes of the shooting, the casting, the anecdotes, the settings to discover or rediscover this cult series which ended 15 years ago !
