The Netflix series adaptation of Coben’s novel Fool Me Once was released in January 2024 and became an instant #1 global sensation.

It won the Lumiere (French Golden Globe) for best picture and was nominated for nine Cesars (French Oscar) and won four, for best director, best actor, best music and best editing.
