Crave unveils a new series that will remind you of some of the controversies of recent years in Quebec
This Monday, Crave revealed the cast and details of its new series titled Good morning Chuck (or the art of harm reduction).
The original proposal, led by actor Nicolas Pinson, will focus on a difficult subject, addiction.
The official synopsis reads:
Beloved by the public, Chuck looks like a real good guy. When he finds himself on the front page of all the newspapers and gossip magazines after a scandal involving him, all of Quebec is in shock, but for those close to him, this incident is the straw that broke the camel’s back. His reputation is destroyed and he retires to a recovery house for people suffering from various kinds of addictions in order to persuade his spouse, his agent and his public of his (relative) goodwill. The catch: Chuck doesn’t really think he needs help… He tells anyone who will listen that he’s just “a party guy!” »
There have, of course, been similar stories in Quebec showbiz in recent years.
The cast will also include Chantal Fontaine, Sylvain Marcel, Bernard Fortin, Marilyne Castonguay, Benz Antoine, Amélie B Simard, Hugo Dubé, Lyna Khellef, Nathalie Doummar, Claire Jacques, Myriam De Verger, Danielle Ouimet, Kevin Owens (WWE), Yves Corbeil and tap dancer Justin Jackson.
Filming has just started in the Sherbrooke area. Jean-François Rivard and Mathieu Cyr are directing the project, produced by St-Laurent TV.
The series will be available on Crave in 2023.
