TL;DR  "The Hookup Plan" is a highly anticipated French-made 8-episode romantic comedy series that will be airing on Netflix Canada December 7th! 

For example, To All The Boys I've Loved or Sierra Burges Is A Loser are all Netflix produced teen rom coms that balance the fine line between being relatable yet also forward-thinking and progressive. 

In short, these films refreshingly break the typical romantic comedy mould.

Despite the fact that Netflix has received a lot of criticism for producing questionable content and shows, they are still quite talented at scouting the international market and bringing home some gold-star series for our viewing pleasure.

One French show that is particularly anticipated is rom-com feel-good series "The Hookup Plan."

The film follow a socially timid French girl and her much less shy and sassy Parasian friends.

But perpetually-single Elsa's luck at romance suddenly turns for the better when she meets a handsome new suitor. But you know what they say, if it's too good to be true, it probably is. There's a big secret her friends are keeping from her about this new man: he's an escort.
