Eric Piccoli

Director | Screenwriter

Eric Piccoli is a well-known and award-winning director and screenwriter of the fiction series Temps mort (twice nominated for an International Emmy Award), Écrivain public (Prix Gémeaux for Best Director) and Wipe me away (Je voudrais qu’on m’efface) (winner of four Prix Gémeaux, official selection at Canneseries) produced by Babel films, which he co-founded. Eric proposes a social, sensitive and naturalistic cinema. In his works, he talks about our need for empathy in order to live together better, he questions the prison that an environment can become and he offers his voice to amplify those already existing of the disenfranchised.

Eric is currently developing several projects including the series La Canicule des pauvres, an adaptation of Jean-Simon DesRochers’ novel, the drama series L’Équipe produced by Avenue Production as well as the season 2 of Wipe me away (Je voudrais qu’on m’efface).
