After “Platane”, it is in a series broadcast on Disney + that we will find Eric Judor in 2022. A family comic series called “Family Weekend” where his character will have to deal with his three daughters, his three exes, his new love and his best friend. A first teaser showing the cast has been unveiled.
One of the bosses of French humor arrives on Disney +
As brilliant as he is discreet, Eric Judor, 53 years old on the clock, has an excellent habit of not making himself too available. Unlike his historic sidekick Ramzy Bedia, who is making more appearances in cinema and television, Eric Judor is rather rare and his aura is thus multiplied. In fact, on the feature-length side, he played a secondary role in The Last Mercenary by David Charhon in 2021. Before that, he had quickly played his own role in Simply black by Jean-Pascal Zadi in 2020.
We especially remember his most personal project, the cult series Plane tree, debuted in 2011 and whose third season aired in 2019. A true gem of a comic series, versed in self-mockery and having fun with real references and a cast of guests often in their own role. This series that he created, written, performed and produced with loyal collaborators, was a great critical success. What probably weighed in Disney’s decision to work with him for the series Family weekend.
Éric Judor is the head of a very blended family
The French Disney + series, one of the very first “local” ones, will therefore introduce us to Fred (Éric Judor), father of a blended family with his three daughters each from a different relationship. Three daughters, therefore three mothers, to which must be added his current partner. And all these little people meet at least every weekend, when Fred welcomes his daughters at home. A pitch told by Eric Judor himself in a teaser that has just been unveiled.
Directed by Pierre-François Martin-Laval and Sophie Reine, Family weekend will therefore constitute a light family program, where Fred will have to deal with his ex Laurence (Annelise Hesme), Marie-Ange (Jeanne Bournaud), and Helena (Anabel Lopez), his new love Emma, and his daughters Clara, 15, Victoire, 12 years old and Romy, 9 years old. Let’s also add his best friend Yass, who will put his two cents in this merry troop.
And who else to play his best friend than the one who was already in Plane tree ? It is indeed Hafid F. Benamar, closest collaborator of Eric Judor and co-creator of Plane tree, found in the role. The guarantee of success? We keep our fingers crossed and we wait to see the result, which will be broadcast on Disney + in 2022.
