The thespian Lamy sisters, Alexandra and Audrey, and Alexandra’s daughter Chloé Jouannet, have a field day in the utterly zany fairground slasher comedy mini-series, Killer Coaster. It all begins when a body is found in the Palavas–les–Flots fair Ghost Train. The year is 1998 and, unbeknownst to her superiors, overly zealous meter maid Sandrine Laplace decides to launch a one-woman investigation into the fun house tragedy. Going undercover among the carnies, Sandrine quickly becomes embroiled in fairground intrigues and warring families, as corpses multiply and she finds herself a little too alone to face a killer on the loose.
Thomas Mansuy has written scripts for numerous shorts and several TV series, including Our Crazy Family (2016), Scènes de ménages (2017), Papa ou Maman (2018), Clem (2020), Les copains d’abord (2020), Les Petits meurtres d’Agatha Christie (2021), and Les Rivières pourpres (2021-22). He began his collaboration with Nikola Lange on Derby Girl (2020-22), a series about a fallen figure skating star, also starring Chloé Jouannet, which Lange co-created and directed. Killer Coaster premiered on Amazon Prime Video on September 15, 2023.
