An Epic Battle for the Monday-Thursday 7pm Box: “Stat” vs. “Indefensible”

For the first time in 26 years, TVA will be pitting its own daily fiction head-on against Radio-Canada’s in hopes of delighting the public broadcaster with the 7pm slot Monday through Thursday.

It’s a titanic battle that’s been taking shape for months. The two broadcasters are working on their weapons behind the scenes. In the last few weeks we’ve known a bit more about the two meetings, ICI Télé has bet on short clips to introduce Stat’s main characters, while TVA has looped a promising first trailer for Indéfendable to await the official trailer. in two weeks.

In the past few days, the all-important slot information for Indéfendable, first shared with advertising agencies this spring, has finally been confirmed directly in TVA ads to viewers. Yes, Indefensible will face Stat every weekday from 7:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Of course, the dearest of them will watch the two daily shows with the help of their recorder or the free platforms of the two channels, but which one do they watch live with the commercials? That’s the big question.

TVA goes for the legal fiction Indéfendable, while ICI Télé offers the medical drama Stat in an attempt to build on the success of District 31.

Since 1996, Radio-Canada has broadcast fiction daily at 7 p.m. There were successively Virginie (1996-2010), 30 Vies (2011-2016) and District 31 (2016-2022), all programs produced by Aetios Productions, the box set by Fabienne Larouche – who wrote the first two series – and Michael Trudeau. Not to be outdone, in Stat we bet on renowned actors such as Suzanne Clément, Normand D’Amour, Patrick Labbé, Anglesh Major, Ludivine Reding, Stéphane Rousseau, Geneviève Schmidt and Lou-Pascal Tremblay. This time, Aetios shares the production burden with A Média (Les mecs, Discussions avec mes parent).

On the TVA side, we’ve rescheduled La Tour after its two seasons from Monday through Thursday at 7:00 p.m. to leave the field open for Indéfendable and the fight that promises to be epic with Stat. For now, TVA won’t confirm Indefensible’s launch date to QMI Agency, while Stat begins his journey on September 12th. We also leverage the talent of actors well-regarded by Quebecers in Indéfendable, including Sébastien Delorme, Anne-Élisabeth Bossé, Michel Laperrière, Marilyse Bourke, Mikhail Ahooja, Martin-David Peters, Catherine Renaud, Mathieu Baron and Nour Belkhira, the Star of the Antigone film.
