He convinces wealthy aristo Lord Fairfax to come on board, and the two find themselves battling demanding clientele, rebellious staff and a hostile climate to make their dream a reality." Writer Lindsay Shapero and director Pierre Monnard are behind the project, a co-production with Swiss network RTS. Jean-Marc Fröhle's Point Productions and Oble Studios are co-producing. Production begins next month in the Swiss Alps for a late 2024 release. (Variety.com, 9/4)
