A New Documentary Series on MOI ET CIE This Fall
Dave Morissette Meets With People Who Make a Difference Across Quebec
MOI ET CIE is pleased to announce the return of Dave Morissette on its airwaves this fall on Dave et le bon monde. Unfolding in 8 half-hour episodes, this new documentary series – produced by Zone3 in collaboration with Quebecor Content – follows Dave on his solo cycling tour covering over 800 kilometers across Quebec, and filled with fascinating encounters.
Meeting Inspiring People
After having walked the El Camino, Dave is thoroughly convinced that only by getting to know others can you truly get to know yourself. This time, his goal is to cover 800 kilometers in two weeks, to get from his home in Montérégie to his birthplace in Baie-Comeau, where his father lives. Along the way, his journey will be enriched by exceptional encounters with people who strive to make the world a better place.
“As I always say, Quebec is filled with good people who deserve to be celebrated,” explains the host. “As soon we came up with the idea for this documentary project to hop on my bike and meet with people across Quebec, I immediately saw myself doing it. This is exactly what I want to do with my life right now. In fact, it’s what I’ve been dreaming about for quite a while. This project is a perfect fit for me, and I can’t wait to start this journey of discovery.”
From one episode to the next, as Dave approaches his ultimate destination, his encounters become amazing opportunities to explore deeply human issues, as the trip gives him a chance to make a long-standing dream come true, i.e. using his notoriety for the benefit of inspiring people.
“As they followed Dave across the Camino de Santiago, MOI ET CIE viewers were profoundly moved by his honesty and humility,” declares Suzane Landry, Senior Manager, Stations & Programming, TVA Group. “This time, he invites us to tag along on an adventure whose only purpose is to meet people and take the time to get to know them, giving us a chance to see, live and think differently. This experience is both straighforward and authentic – just like Dave himself.”
“With Dave et le bon monde, we’re pursuing our mission to tell genuine, authentic stories involving people from different walks of life,” adds Ginette Viens, Vice President, Brands & Content, Quebecor Content. “Dave will cycle 800 km in search of unique and inspiring individuals, and we’re grateful that he’s taking the time to introduce them to us.”
Dave et le bon monde: an intimate and authentic documentary series fuelled by Dave Morissette’s reflections and introspections. Tune in on MOI ET CIE this fall!
