It is through the eyes of Julie as the new spouse of Marc (Claude Legault) that the action is largely articulated. “She is thrown into this family and does not really understand what she is getting into. For her, there is no problem, but at some point, reality waves to her!” said Cathleen Rouleau in an interview with QMI Agency.

IN About Anthonythe latter tells with a lot of love, humor and light about her relationship with Sylvain Parent-Bédard, the founder of ComediHa !, in Quebec, and her two sons, Charles and Antoine, with whom she has lived for eight years. .

“It will be fun, touching, people will cry sometimes, but above all we want to laugh. […] It’s all about Antoine, but there’s also a big family story going through it. All members of my boyfriend’s family are characters, they are very colorful people, so I wanted to show this extraordinary family, ”said the author, who was supported by Benoit Pelletier in the script editing.

A first role for Antoine

Interestingly enough and to ensure a lot of authenticity for this production, it is the real Antoine, Antoine Parent-Bédard who will appear in the series. And since we wanted to make things easier for the 15-year-old, the recordings take place in the family apartment, where everything is already adapted to his needs.

“I thought it was only Antoine who could do Antoine, because he has something very special in his eyes, in the way he moves and expresses himself, he is a child who does not let anyone care, who is very light. The series was written based on its mechanics; we only ask him to exist, to shine his light, ”said Cathleen Rouleau, who also wanted to address diversity and make Quebecers aware of the cause of people with multi-disabilities, especially anything related to universal accessibility.

Since it’s a family story, it’s ComediHa !, in collaboration with Quebecor Content, which produces the 10 half hours ofAbout Anthony. We will have to wait until next year to see the first season’s intrigue at Club illico.

Remember that we recently learned that the format ofAbout Anthony was sold in France even before the start of filming for the first season in Quebec.

Finally, Cathleen Rouleau, who took a refresher course in screenwriting fiction series at the École nationale de l’humour, is developing two other humorous projects for television, namely The untraceable and True love.
