Surrounded by photos of the star animators in 3D, strobe lights, crystal chandeliers and a gourmet buffet, all under the golds of the Hotel Potocki, a magnificent mansion that now houses the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Gérald Brice-Viret, director of the Canal group’s branches, promises “a crazy comeback” for five reasons.
Last week the audiences of PSG-Reims, for Messi’s first outing in his Parisian club, made a real hit on the Spanish channel Télécino. This augurs well for very good audiences for Canal + which broadcasts the Champions League from next Monday. Formula 1 remains in the group “until the end of 2024” without forgetting the rest of football, rugby and even… paddle!
The iconic program presented by Pascale Clarke stopped in 2007. Canal decided to unearth the boxes and entrust the presentation to Nathalie Levy, ex-journalist from BFMtv. “Aside, it is the quintessence of confidence, it is an elegant program that has left a singular imprint on people”, confides the host, who admits to having seen the news that the show was going to come back, in the press, and who has passed all the interviews and only very recently received the positive response. “I said to myself that it was an opportunity not to pass up”, tells the journalist in her warm voice who will receive Kad Merad for her first date on Thursday, September 16.
“It’s been 10 years that Canal + has not launched a channel,” says Gerald Brice-Viret. The group is launching two at once: Canal + Doc “stories told by extraordinary people”, with a documentary on Iggy Pop by Antoine de Caunes and another on Coco Chanel, by Carole Bouquet. And for the little ones, Canal + Kids addressed to 4/12 years old. New small subscribers in prospect?
The series, spearhead of the encrypted channel, continue their path with thirteen new products including “On the Verge” by Julie Delpy on the daily life of four women “who still do stupid things” or Alex Lutz who will propose “La vengeance au triple gallop ”a“ tribute to his grandmother, who adored the great sagas of the 80s ”. It promises…
Gad Elmaleh and Camille Lelouche will offer recordings of their shows. But especially Jonathan Cohen who had divided with his parody of seduction shows “The Flame” will return with an adventure show … “which has nothing to do, but nothing at all with Koh Lanta”, laughs the actor who s ‘will be flying soon for a shoot in Mexico.
