TC Media has officially opened its brand-new television production studio. Located in the TC Media offices in downtown Montreal on René-Lévesque Boulevard West, with a breathtaking view of the city, the studio is getting off to a great start by hosting the new live morning show, “Ça commence bien!,” to be broadcast on V starting on September 3, 2012.
“Producing a morning show is always a big challenge for the production team. Our decision to build a studio and to start off with this type of show confirms our commitment to carving out an enviable position in the Quebec television community,” said Philippe Lapointe, Senior Vice President, Multiplatform Media Development, TC Media. “This new studio gives us another channel for promoting our brands, and those of our business partners and customers, to a broader public.”
This past April, TC Media announced that it was introducing a new service to create television content that could be delivered on all communication platforms, from TV channels for general dissemination to new media, Internet and mobile channels for on-demand delivery. The morning show “Ça commence bien!” is the new production house’s first major project.
The contribution from TC Media properties, including community papers in Quebec City, Estrie, Saguenay and Mauricie, as well as the newspapers Metro Montréal and Les Affaires for news and information, and well-known publications such as ELLE Québec and Coup de pouce for input on fashion, beauty and lifestyle, will guarantee the show has a great variety of content.
