It was in 2018 that France Télévisions launched Slash, a digital platform intended to bring young adult audiences back to its channels. The platform begins with a few series whose spearhead is SkamFrench adaptation of a Scandinavian series aimed at young people.
The series, whose 4th season has just been released, is a dazzling success and has 350 million views to date. For Sened Dhab, the reason is the mirror effect: “That’s what we’ve been looking for since the beginning with ‘Skam’ and that’s what we do from season to season. It’s trying to show and stage young French people, young French high school students who resemble as much as possible what the population of young French people and French high school students experience today. ‘Skam’ has the specificity of being broadcast in sequence in real time, that is to say basically, if there is a scene which takes place on Monday at 10:35 am in the series, it will be broadcast on Monday at 10:35 a.m. on our platform and on YouTube. So there’s a stream of real-time data like that, which grows even more.”
The last season of Skam especially talking about rape. A theme already mentioned in a fiction on France 2 but told differently. “It’s not that we couldn’t talk about this theme on a linear channel like France 2 or France 3. It’s just that indeed, there, we are aiming this series and therefore this subject at a younger audience. To offer him a representation, to which this public can identify and therefore effectively be confronted with this problem and for some, can possibly put words on a situation that they have experienced. declared Sened Dhab.
Sened Dhab also launched the series Parliament. Initiated on digital, it has been broadcast since last month on France 5 in prime time.
A consecration which aims to make children: “When we created the digital fiction department. The goal of the game was to supply fiction, single series, to our France TV platform and the France TV Slash offer. And then, with the evolution of our needs and our antennas, Florent Dumont and Stéphane Simon, Gomez, have decided to open a box for Slash programs in general and therefore, among other things, fiction. Effectively on Monday evenings on France 5. entrusts Sened Dhab.
Among the fictions to come, Reuss and tender flesh , two crowned fictions at the Seriesmania Festival. The first is a hip-hop musical set in a city, the second the story of an intersex character. These series will be released in the fall. Skam, Parliament and all these series are available free of charge on the France Télévision france.tv platform.
