Filming of the "Haute Démolition" series, based on the novel by Jean-Philippe Baril Guérard, has just started with the actors Étienne Galloy ("Les bracelets rouges") and Léane Labrèche-Dor ("Squad 99"), who camp the main characters of Raph and Laurie.
We're on the move
This is the second novel by the author which has been adapted by KOTV and Séries Plus, after the drama series "Manuel de la vie sauvage", which was broadcast last winter on the airwaves of this Corus channel. “High Demolition” will also be offered next winter.
Jean-Philippe Baril Guérard signs the screenplay with Suzie Bouchard, who co-wrote “Le temps des raspberries” with Florence Longpré, a touching production available on Club illico. Christian Laurence, who had produced "Manuel de la vie sauvage" and to whom we owe "La dérape", is back in service for the six episodes of "Haute démolition", which will be boxed by the end of the month of august.
Here is the synopsis: "'Haute Démolition' is the close encounter between Raph, an up-and-coming comedian whose career doesn't take off fast enough for his liking, and Laurie, who has never dared to pursue her dream of becoming humor writer. Laurie has always lacked courage; Raph has always lacked content. They are a perfectly opposite yin and yang whose union allows them to flourish professionally and personally. But it's too explosive to last. When Laurie realizes their relationship has no future, she ends the project, plunging Raph into an abyssal black hole. He tries to get out of it by substituting the love of Laurie for that of the public, before undertaking to banish her from her environment out of pure desire for revenge. His victory will be bittersweet and will leave a lot of collateral damage in his wake.
Éric Bernier, Hélène Bourgeois Leclerc, Michel Charette, Irdens Exantus, Carolanne Foucher, Guillaume Gauthier, Noémie Leduc-Vaudry, Bruno Marcil, Erich Preach and Francis-William Rhéaume also defend a role in "Haute démolition".
