A New Series on TVA This Fall
At the heart of the drama
TVA is delighted to announce this fall’s premiere of a new, high-suspense fictional series called Alerte Amber, produced by Pixcom in collaboration with Quebecor Content.
Vincent Leclerc and Madeleine Péloquin star as the parents of a 12-year-old autistic boy who mysteriously disappears – immersing investigators from the special Missing Persons Unit into every family’s worst nightmare.
“Amber Alerts instantly trigger a mix of fear and anticipation among the entire population,” explains Ginette Viens, Vice President, Brands & Content, Quebecor Content. “Everyone hopes the child will be found as quickly as possible. It’s a scenario that no family wants to live through. We were extremely impressed and excited by writer Julie Hivon’s treatment, backed by the Pixcom team. I think this new series will be highly emotional for Quebec viewers.”
“We’re extremely proud to bring to the screen the very first series written entirely by Julie Hivon,” add Nicola Merola and Charles Lafortune, President and Vice President of Pixcom. “With her immense talent, she managed to brilliantly tell this unusually intense family story, which will undoubtedly touch every viewer’s heart. The show is directed by the gifted Stephan Beaudoin (“L’heure bleue”), who succeeds in conveying a vast range of emotions.”
Alerte Amber is an original Quebec production airing in 10 hour-long episodes. Vincent Leclerc and Madeleine Péloquin will be supported by an impressive cast, to be announced at a later date.
