French Canada’s answer to Seinfeld, Martin Matte’s television series is about, well… nothing – Rien du tout! Add a maid, a dentist, a doctor, a toaster salesman, a filthy rich star… and what have you got?? Off the wall, outlandish humor that takes the most tedious, mundane, everyday event and pushes it beyond the limit! It’s a series that walks that fine line between playful innocence… and a playful eagerness to challenge contemporary family and social taboos. Working off the momentum of his two wildly popular ninety- minute television specials – which garnered more than 50% market shares taped from 2 live shows that broke ticket sales records – Martin Matte is now parleying that same success into primetime sitcom gold!!
