It is in a postcard setting, in the Camargue, that the new Prime Video series is being prepared. Her name ? Escort Boys. A fiction of six 30-minute episodes freely inspired by an Israeli program, Milk & Honey. To escape their respective galleys, four friends in their thirties decide to sell their bodies. “It is an inventory of today’s desires”, explains the director Ruben Alvesexclusively for AlloCiné.

We follow these men’s quest for identity, while exploring female pleasure. In this post-MeToo era, a lot has changed. Desires, expectations and fantasies remain the same, but the applications have shaken up the codes. I don’t want to trivialize prostitution and praise it, but I want to understand what’s going on in people’s private lives. How four young men can embark on this adventure.”

A NICE QUARTET OF ACTORS

The director entrusts the four main roles to Guillaume Labbe (I promise you, Para//els), Corentin Fila (Mortal, When you’re 17), Simon Ehrlacher (More beautiful life) and Thibaut Évrard (Paris Police 1900). The director took time to compose the ideal quartet that will punctuate this plot located in the paradisiacal landscape of the Camargue. At their side, the actress Marysole Fertard (tomorrow belongs to us) embodies the little sister of one of the characters, the one who will encourage them to start their activity.

These are four different routescontinues the director, before detailing. There is the one who returns to his land, the one who must manage his life as a couple in parallel, one must deal with his difficult past and the other is ready to do anything to escape his social condition..” This is one of the many subjects ofEscort Boys : how to escape a disenchanted daily life.

Going from laughter to tears is exactly what I love and what I want to do.

In front of the heroes, there are the customers. The other stars of the series are them. Each episode will be dedicated to a woman. Exciting profiles, very characterized and varied. For the names of those who will interpret them, Ruben Alves let the mystery hover:These are actresses with whom I want to work. Each will bring back its own universe. They are all fun because of their differences.”

After his first two films, The golden cage and Mrs., this is the first time that the filmmaker has tackled the serial format. As with his previous projects, he wants to approach dramatic subjects with real lightness. “I like this ambivalencehe says. Going from laughter to tears is exactly what I love and what I want to do.”

A NEW CHALLENGE FOR ITS DIRECTOR

After the difficult journey of Mrs. in theaters – the film was released a few days before the cinemas closed – the director quickly got back in the saddle. Escort Boys is the first independent series distributed by the platform, but supported by the CNC. Who says a first also says some risks to take. “We wipe the plasters, but it’s a challenge that I like”, he enthuses.

Passionate about his subject, Ruben Alves has no shortage of ideas: “This first season is only an aperitif of all the subjects that we could explore later. We lay the foundations, but there is a boulevard if success is there.” The series has already been sold internationally and should be released in 2023.
