SUGAR SAMMY’s newest TV show debuts on M6 on June 23
La France a un incroyable talent: La Bataille du jury.
Improv Moments : Quebec vs France - Facebook Live Event on June 17 at 9PM EDT.
France’s M6 network’s show La France a un incroyable talent has expanded its success into a brand new show which pits the popular coaches against one another as they each mentor top contestants that they’ve each hand-picked from the Got Talent universe. La France a un incroyable talent: La Bataille du jury debuts on June 23 and features the four La France a un incroyable talent judges, Sugar Sammy, Marianne James, Eric Antoine and Hélène Ségara mentoring 20 of the top contestants from the show’s previous seasons and 4 contestants from the Got Talent shows around the world in a head-to-head battle.
Team Sugar Sammy includes Dakota & Nadia. While filming in November 2019, the contemporary dance duo performed a highly emotional and poignant piece evoking the experience of a migrant couple which elicited a reaction from their coach which we’ve never seen before.
La France a un incroyable talent will return for its 15th season in fall 2020. This will be Sugar Sammy’s third season with the popular TV show, which delivers an average of 3.5 million viewers per episode, and he has already signed on for season 2 of La France a un incroyable talent: La Bataille du jury.
On June 17 at 9:00 pm EDT fans can join Sugar Sammy for a Facebook Live event as he presents his latest video, Improv Moments: Quebec Vs France. The video will feature the best improv moments from his show in Quebec with fans from France in attendance and his shows in France with fans from Quebec in attendance. In March, his Facebook Live broadcast of the bilingual You’re Gonna Rire DVD special gave comedy lovers some much-needed laughter and a chance to forget the hardships that everyone is experiencing at this particularly difficult time in history.
All three seasons of his hit TV show Ces Gars Là are now available on the Crave streaming platform. The scripted comedy TV show, co-written by Sugar Sammy and Simon Olivier Fecteau, follows two buddies whose backgrounds are diametrically opposed and how that shapes and colours their friendship.
