Montréal, February 23, 2021 – Starting this Thursday, suspense fans can step into the strange and eery world of Patrick Senécal présente, Club illico’s first original anthology series. The 10 episodes, spawned by the imagination of the Québec master of the thriller, are directed by Stéphane Lapointe and produced by Zone 3 and Productions Starling Road, in collaboration with Quebecor Content. The exciting drama series consists of standalone episodes featuring different places and characters, but they all have one thing in common: they are about to experience the worst day of their lives.
An impressive cast brings the characters to life and makes the suspense palpable: Anne-Marie Cadieux, Sébastien Dodge, Benoît Finley, Hugo Giroux, Karine Gonthier-Hyndman, Sébastien Huberdeau, David La Haye, Steve Laplante, Cat Lemieux, Nicolas Létourneau, Mylène Mackay, Elliot Parent, Théodore Pellerin, Dominique Quesnel, Sébastien René, Lou-Pascal Tremblay, Cynthia Trudel, Erich Preach, Benoît Rousseau, Manue Séguin, Bruno Verdoni.
At the beginning of each 30-minute episode, Patrick Senécal introduces the tale and its world, a mix of fear, fantasy, horror and black humour, betrayal, envy, guilt and the dark side of the human soul. The first five stories, to be released on Thursday, are about a small town that’s not as quiet as it seems, a strange audition, a very special cellphone, a mysterious interrogation and disturbing children. Five more episodes will follow in the fall.
Patrice Senécal présente, an original series that will send shivers down your spine: release date February 25, exclusively on Club illico.
