One can tell that V, a French Canadian TV network, is dying for the premiere of its new original series Prozac. Besides, the network has also released online a video that brings us on the set of this show created by Sophia Borovchyk and Karina Goma. In this video, the writers and a few members of the cast talk about the show's story.
The show's story is centred on Philippe (Patrice Robitaille), a columnist in his thirties who have always had everything in life. However, because of a major failure in his professional life, Philippe gets fired and even contemplates committing a suicide. This is why his relatives and close friends urge him to seek help.
This is why Philippe joins a group therapy for depressed people. he 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.
Besides, 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.
Finally, while no premiere date has been formally announced for Prozac by V, it's very likely that the show will premiere on September 7 at 8:30 PM. Moreover, here's the show's Facebook page.
