Broadcast of three comedy shows in French: three-year agreement between Netflix and Just for Laughs TV
MISE À DAY
Juste pour rire TV has just signed an agreement with Netflix to broadcast three solo comedy shows in French over the next three years.
According to this which was shared on Monday, the first of these shows will be filmed this year, but we were careful not to reveal the identity of the comedian who will be entitled to a recording.
Netflix and Just for laugh are not their first engagements together. Mathieu Dufour's show at the Bell Center was captured on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Just for Laughs festival last July, then uploaded to the American platform.
“We are delighted to extend our collaboration with Netflix and to begin a new three-year partnership that will allow us to bring even more great French-Canadian comedic talent to Netflix subscribers,” said Just for Laughs Group Chief Content Officer, Marina di Pancrazio, in a press release.
“Quebec has incredible stand-up voices for the world to discover. We look forward to deepening our relationship with Just for Laughs after collaborating on Math Duff's Hilarious Show last year,” added Netflix Canada Content Director Tara Woodbury.
