On March 15th the French channel announced the launch of its new label for the development of original and exclusive digital content. TV5 Monde webcréations will produce short, creative formats, at the same time promoting young talents.
The programmes are broadcast on the channel’s digital media and on social media. Targeting 15-35 year olds, the channel will deal with “Africa, Culture and the French language”. Three original creations have already been broadcast during the week celebrating the French language which took place from March 16th to 24th.
The first, Slimane-Baptiste Berhoun’s Comment te dire, features youtubeurs NATOO and Julien Ménielle, and gives advice on how to express yourself better. Parlons peu, parlons bien, a web series written by Aurore Vincenti and illustrated by Margaux Amaré, helps make sense of today’s language by analyzing new French buzzwords (influenceur, malaisant, flexitarien). Finally, the webseries Quiproquos, by Camus Ghanassia, Juliette Blanche and Servan de James, takes a humorous look at misunderstandings caused by French expressions.
