Jean-Philippe Perras and Brigitte Lafleur will be two of the actors at the heart of the new series “Captifs”, a six-part psychological thriller conceived by Duo Productions and Quebecor Content, which has just entered production.
Based on an original idea by director Yannick Savard (“The blue hour”) and texts by François Pagé, an author who is just starting out in television, “Captifs” will take us to a building filled with multiple cells and bathrooms. control, where the voltage will be at its maximum.
People of different ages and backgrounds will wake up there, each in their cell. These people do not know each other and believe they have nothing in common, but they will quickly realize that they are constantly watched and listened to, that they are the pawns of a dangerous game, controlled like puppets.
The group (which will include characters played by Martin Dubreuil, Schelby Jean-Baptiste, Brigitte Poupart, Milya Corbeil-Gauvreau, Étienne Courville, Fabien Dupuis, Mylène Dinh-Robic and Pierre-Luc Fontaine) will have to work together to survive and regain freedom. … at the cost of manipulation, revenge and other manifestations of survival instinct! A game of cat and mouse that will not leave the viewer unscathed.
