This Wednesday, February 23, Disney + unveils its very first French production to its subscribers: the comedy Weekend Family with Eric Judor as the overwhelmed dad of a recomposed tribe. Meet this amazing family!
The first French original series Disney+ arrives this Wednesday, February 23 on the platform. Carried by actor and humorist Eric Judor, the comedy Week-end Family follows the daily life, or rather the weekends, of an endearing father and his family like no other: his three daughters, their three mothers and… his new companion.
Before discovering the eight episodes of this joyful and feel-good series, we introduce you to the members of this recomposed tribe that you will love!
Eric Judor is Fred
At the head of this family which overflows with love, we find Eric Judor, best known for his comic roles, and the duo he formed for a long time with his friend Ramzy Bedia. After La Tour Montparnasse infernale, Seuls Two, Problemos and the H and Platane series, the 53-year-old actor and director, who himself has 5 children, plays a father with a very wise humor in Week-end Family .
A Parisian osteopath, Fred has custody of his three daughters every weekend. Six months after falling madly in love with the charming Quebecer Emmanuelle, he decides to introduce her to his surprising tribe… including his three exes. And the cohabitation promises to be full of surprises!
Clara, Victoire and Romy: meeting with Fred’s daughters
Every weekend, Fred takes care of his three daughters: Clara, 15, Victoire, 12 and Romy, 9. The eldest of the family, an eco-friendly teenager very active on social networks, is embodied by Liona Bordonaro, who notably camped the daughter of Max Boublil in 2018 in the series Mike.
The adorable youngest, often very awkward, is played by Midie Dreyfus, who recently appeared in the series Le Grand Bazar and Je te promet, in which she lends her features to Maud (Marilou Berry) as a child.
Finally, Roxane Barazzuol was given the role of Romy, the youngest, a real tornado who will give her father a hard time. If these are the first steps of the young actress on the small screen, spectators will soon be able to see her in Choeur de Rockers, CE2 and Les Survivors.
Emmanuelle, Fred’s new companion
The one who made Fred’s heart capsize was her: Emmanuelle, nicknamed Emma, a Quebecer who came to France to work on her thesis in child psychology. She certainly did not expect to meet true love during her stay, even less in an osteopath’s office.
In Week-end Family, she is played by Quebec actress Daphnée Côté-Hallé, whose first major role in a French production. Across the Atlantic, she notably appeared in the web series Le Killing.
Marie-Ange, Helena and Laurence: who are Fred’s exes?
Full members of this irresistible family, the three mothers of Fred’s daughters, and therefore his exes, are very present in the latter’s life. Laurence, Clara’s mother, owns a café. This woman of a rather calm temperament is played by actress Annelise Hesme (on the right in the image), heroine of the Nina series and who has already collaborated with Eric Judor for Platane.
Jeanne Bournaud (on the left in the image) lends her features to the authoritarian and organized mother of Victoire. The French actress has appeared in the series Clem, Lazy Company and So Be They, all available on Disney+. The invasive, but very warm Helena, mother of little Romy, is played by Anabel Lopez (in the center of the image), seen in Baron Noir, Trapped or the dramatic comedy Tomorrow everything begins.
Also note the presence in the casting of actor Hafid F. Benamar, a great accomplice of Eric Judor with whom he created the Platane series, in the role of his best friend. Séphora Pondi of the Comédie-Française plays Cora, a friend of Emmanuelle.
