Canal Plus on the Laugh Track With Hit Comedy ‘Platane’

Paris– After delving into a wide variety of genre, from cop dramas (“Braquo”) to costumers (“Borgia”) and most recently fantasy skeins (“Rebound”), French paybox Canal Plus is also exploring comedy with “Platane,” a half-hour laffer series co-helmed by popular stand-up comic Eric Judor and Denis Imbert.

Canal Plus kicked off the promotion of the second season of “Platane,” holding a press screening of the first three episodes with the key cast and production team in attendance.

Ramzy Bedia (Judor’s real life stand-up teammate) also plays his own role, opposite Annelise Hesme, Toinette Laquiere and Nathan Kassabi.
