Back to school is already a distant memory. The temperatures are falling, the night begins much earlier… in short, autumn is setting in. And with it comes the desire to stay on the sofa with a good series to watch. That turns out well ! If you like court series and miscellaneous facts, music, fantasy or if you always look forward to Halloween, we have a program that should please you!
“Disorders”, the first series by Florence Foresti
The fans are impatient! The favorite humorist of the French unveils his very first series. Florence Foresti wrote and directed Orders which tells the underside of his “real” life, off stage: his daily life as a public figure, funny but anxious, his relations with his agent, his friends, his life as a separated mother… So many sequences which promise funny moments and quirky, as the comedian knows so well how to do in his shows. At his side, a great troupe of actors, not necessarily very well known to the general public, like the comedian Béatrice Facquer, who plays his agent and who was spotted in a theater by Florence Foresti. And then expected appearances like those of Baptiste Lecaplain and Audrey Lamy.
“Disorders”, October 3 on Canal +

“Candy: Murder in Texas”, Jessica Biel unrecognizable
Miscellaneous facts inspired by true stories and resounding trials are popular on the platforms, here is another example. With Candy: Murder in Texas, we dive into the Texas of the early 80s.

It is Jessica Biel who interprets the main role of this mini-series of 5 episodes and who is also the executive producer. With short and curly hair, disturbing in this role of mother at home, the actress, revealed to the general public by the series seven at home and seen from in particular in The Sinneris unrecognizable.

“Peripherals, the worlds of Flynne”, welcome to a parallel reality
We leave the murders and the trials for a dive into the fantastic alongside the talented Chloë Grace Moretz, who plays the main role of this science fiction series, adaptation of the novel Peripheral devices (Ed. Diable Vauvert) by William Gibson, one of the leaders of the cyberpunk movement. In a rural, ramshackle America of the near future, Flynne Fisher lives by competing in video game and virtual reality tournaments for wealthy patrons. One day, she is offered a special connection, to a “peripheral”, which transports her to a very real post-apocalyptic London. This reality has not yet taken place but it offers him the vision of a world plunged into chaos. Reality or fiction, world ravaged by various cataclysms, fans of the genre will find themselves there!
