Scenes Households : finally, a gay couple in the series ? The producers are afraid

The creators of Scenes of the Household – which just celebrated its 10 years on M6, may be talented, but they are not the most courageous. The evidence behind new excuses, they have claimed that no gay couple was still in the program.

It’s been ten years that Scenes of Household makes the happiness of the viewers, but yet, nothing has really changed. If a couple is gone and that new love came along the way, it is clear that the comedy of M6 still has not dared to take the plunge. What is it ? To stage a gay couple.

Worse, Mathieu Laurentin (producer), for his part, confided that the idea of integrating a gay couple (men or women) should even be pushed back even further in time. The reason for this ? The series competing Parents mode of employment is already coming to pass the cape : “With the ‘Parents manual’, we will be obliged to reinvent something very different. As long as we won’t be happy with our work, we will not release a gay couple (to the antenna). We never did get out a couple as we are not convinced that everything comes together for people to take ownership of it.

10 years of reflection, it starts to make the long…
