Sylvain Caron

European Showrunner Programme


Writer, Producer | »THE CAGE«, »BALTHAZAR«


Sylvain was born and raised in a small village lost in the endless wheat fields of the French countryside. He trained as a physicist, worked as a management consultant, but the urge to tell stories was too strong: he switched careers and became a screenwriter. After a training at La Fémis in series writing, he worked on the French hit show »Balthazar« as an episode writer. In the past two years he created 3 shows, on which he was also the headwriter: »Lost River« (6x52’ limited series, drama/investigation, shooting May 2023), »The Cage« (5x45’ recurring series, drama/sport, shooting June 2023), Camilla Lackberg’s novels adaptation (6x52’ recurring series, drama/investigation, shooting September 2023).
