Original, sometimes zany discoveries, free-wheeling conversations, and unique news and views: it all adds up to 100 % LOCAL, one of TV’s most entertaining hours. Hosted by Nicolas Ouellet, the new program takes the form of a friendly competition between four challengers, all proudly representing their own region as they pay playful homage to the things that make their corner of the country unique. From one ocean to another, everything you always wanted to know about our country but were afraid to ask is covered without the slightest trace of pretention or objectivity!
Shot in Ottawa starting December 12 and 13, 100 % LOCAL will include 13 episodes set to air on ICI Radio-Canada Télé Sundays at 2 p.m., starting January 10. The program will also be presented on ICI ARTV on Mondays at 3 p.m.
100 % LOCAL is backed by a pumped and primed team. Young host Nicolas Ouellet has already distinguished himself on ICI Radio-Canada, TVA, Vrak and ICI ARTV. Our four challengers are actors known for their improvisational skills—fortunately for us, because they’re going to need every trick up their sleeves to promote their home regions. They are Laura Lussier (West), Vincent Poirier (Ontario), Tammy Verge (Quebec) and Christian Essiambre (Atlantic).
Each episode is developed around a central theme and broken down into 12 segments, giving our protagonists a chance to match their wits and claim bragging rights for their regions.
The trunk’s contents will be posted on ICI.Radio-Canada.ca. By clicking on the objects in an interactive table, visitors will be able to get more information, links, etc.
Join us to have some fun and get to know your country in a whole new way. 100 % LOCAL starts Sunday, January 10 at 2 p.m. on ICI Radio-Canada Télé and Monday, January 11 at 3 p.m. on ICI ARTV.
