V, a French Canadian TV network, has revealed the details of the script of its new original series Prozac, which was created by Sophia Borovchyk and Karina Goma. The show is currently in production in Montreal and will premiere this September.
In Prozac, we follow Philippe (Patrice Robitaille), a columnist who's living large until the day he's got fired because of a faux pas. Besides, when his friends and relatives learn that Philippe contemplates suicide, they implore him to seek help.
While he's at the end of the road and approaching his fourties, Philippe decides to join a group therapy for depressed people. The group is made of Marie (Sandrine Bisson), a morally naughty woman, François (Jean-Pierre Bergeron), a depressed crooner, and Mireille (Louise Portal), a patient with a Mother Teresa syndrome (i.e. wanting to help people at all cost even when they don't need it). Mathieu (François Létourneau), an economic journalist and Philippe's best friend, supports Philippe. However, Philippe's downfall will take its toll on the two men's once friendly relation. After all, Mathieu's career will soar right after Philippe had been laid off.
Moreover, the leading cast also includes Isabelle Blais and Louis Morissette. As for the supporting cast, it also includes Gilles Renaud, France Castel, Martin Laroche and Sophie Cadieux.
