The first images of “Stat”, the daily news from Radio-Canada which will oppose TVA’s “Indéfendable” this fall, were unveiled on Thursday.
This first trailer shows the staff of St. Vincent's Hospital in Montreal in action, whose pivotal characters are four longtime friends who work there, namely the head of the emergency department Emmanuelle St-Cyr (Suzanne Clément), psychiatrist Philippe Dupéré (Patrick Labbé), general surgeon and intensivist Isabelle Granger (Geneviève Schmidt), as well as beneficiary attendant Éric Perron (Stéphane Rousseau).
By sharing these new images, the public broadcaster also took the opportunity to remind you that the first episode of its new daily drama, which will run from Monday to Thursday, will be broadcast on September 12, from 7 p.m., at the same time as the TVA daily news, “Indéfendable”. Filming is still ongoing.
Written by Marie-Andrée Labbé (“Sans rendez-vous”, “Trop”), “Stat” will focus on everyday life, but above all on issues of all kinds that affect staff members, patients and their friends, interpreted among others by Normand D'Amour, Lou-Pascal Tremblay, Ludivine Reding, Samantha Fins, Virginie Ranger-Beauregard, Anglesh Major, Jean-Nicolas Verreault, Isabelle Blais, Bruno Marcil and Maxime Allard, to name a few.
Directed by Danièle Méthot and produced by Guillaume Lespérance (A Média), as well as Fabienne Larouche and Michel Trudeau (Aetios Productions), “Stat” is on view Monday to Thursday at 7 p.m., starting September 12 on ICI TÉLÉ.
