Disney is officially expanding its content offerings into the French language. Now we can watch the first-ever French Disney+ original series, Weekend Family.
The eight-episode family comedy follows the exploits of a chaotic, endearing ‘super-blended’ family. Check out the trailer for Weekend Family below.
Here’s the official synopsis from Disney:
Every weekend, fun-loving Fred (Eric Judor) has custody of his three very different daughters – idealistic Clara (Liona Bordonaro); quirky Victoire (Midie Dreyfus); and demanding Romy (Roxane Barrazuol). This would be complicated enough, but their three mothers (Annelise Hesme, Jeanne Bournaud and Annabel Lopez) and Fred’s best friend Stan (Hafid F. Benamar) are always on the scene as well, making the weekends a little bit more frenetic. But Fred has fallen in love again, and he wants to move his girlfriend in with him. Emmanuelle (Daphné Côté Hallé) is a Canadian emigrant with no experience of parenting, and only a half-finished PhD in child psychology. With the support of Fred and the not-so-helpful advice of her best friend, Cora (Sephora Pondi), Emmanuelle will have to put her books and theories aside and find her own way as step-mother to this crazy weekend family.
Weekend Family comes from creator Baptiste Filleul. Géraldine de Margerie and Nour Ben Salem serve as head writers. The series is directed by Pierre-François Martin-Laval and Sophie Reine .
