Prime Video announces the return of scripted drama and murder mystery, "Nuit Blanche" (8x60). A first in Canada, Prime Video partners with Corus Entertainment's Séries Plus to revive the popular drama. The second season begins production this summer with Quebec’s Pixcom. At launch, season two of “Nuit Blanche” will be exclusively available on Prime Video and later on television with Séries Plus in Canada. Season One will also be available on Prime Video.
Filled with even more paranoia and intrigue, season two continues to follow the Hébert family in two time frames, one in the present as they investigate the murder of the family’s matriarch, plus the family’s past, this time set in the 1980s.
“We’re excited to do this for the first time in Canada, as we team up with Corus to resurrect a fan-favourite series that has a lot more story to tell,” said Nav Saini, head of content, Prime Video Canada. “Following the launch of 'LOL: Qui Rira le Dernier?', 'Nuit Blanche' is another example of our growth and investment in French-Canadian programming. We remain committed to working with creatives like Pixcom to further grow our content offering, and bring Francophone customers what they want to watch.”
“We feel privileged to be able to collaborate with Prime Video and Pixcom to bring 'Nuit Blanche' back to screens. Séries Plus intends to keep up with the high-quality production standards our audience have come to expect, and we see great potential with type of co-production to offer more premium content in the future,” said Julie Godon, head of French specialty networks, Corus Entertainment.
“It is such a gift that our friends at Prime Video and Séries Plus share the love we have for 'Nuit Blanche'. Writer Julie Hivon and the entire team are beyond excited to dive back into the life of Loulou and her family,” said Nicola Merola, president of Pixcom.
Produced by Pixcom in association with Amazon Studios and Séries Plus, the series is executive produced by Nicola Merola, Charles Lafortune, and Sylvie Desrochers and produced by Nathalie Cecyre. The creator and writer for the show is Julie Hivon (Alertes).
