BLIND SPOT (DOUDÉGE WÉNKEL), the movie he co-wrote, hit the cinemas in 2012, the same year, COMEBACK, a sitcom on which he worked as Headwriter and Co-Showrunner, was broadcasted on RTL.

Frederic speaks and works in four languages: Luxembourgish, French, German and English. These linguistic capacities have allowed him to work as a script doctor on numerous films in France, Germany and the UK.
