Bell Media Unveils Spectacular Slate of French-Language Programming for 2022-23
MONTRÉAL, June 16, 2022 /CNW/ - Bell Media presented the details of its Fall 2022 - Winter 2023 programming as part of its Futur 22 virtual event, today. Clients and advertisers were shown the depth, diversity, and quality of the original French-language content to be offered this Fall and Winter by Bell Media. Starring outstanding talent, the slate of new programming includes dramas that will grip viewers' imaginations, documentary-style reality TV granting unique access to different worlds, and bold, original series that will help strengthen Bell Media's brands. It's clear that this new TV and radio lineup stands out within the Quebec media landscape and pursue its mission: to deliver highly compelling content on all its platforms.
"Bell Media continues to be a multiplatform group boasting the strongest growth in Quebec, among both general-interest and Specialty channels," said Karine Moses, Senior Vice President, Content Development & News for Bell Media and Vice Chair, Quebec, for Bell. "Not only do we have a varied roster featuring an increasing number of Original Productions that connect with our viewers more than ever before, but our content is available literally everywhere: TV, radio, on-demand and online via Noovo.ca—the number-one platform in Quebec, with the most unique visitors. We even have some content on TikTok. We're extremely proud of the progress we've made since adding Noovo to our family of channels, and I can promise you that, season by season, we will further cement our position in the Quebec media field."
"Our new programming continues to successfully showcase Quebec talent, creators, and Original Productions," stated Suzane Landry, Vice President, Content Development, Programming and News, Bell Media Quebec. "We're proud to enhance our slate with original prestige dramas, including series such as CHOUCHOU and L'EMPEREUR, which will transport viewers into fictional worlds that are unique and fascinating. Once again, we'll be able to leverage the return of popular reality TV titles, such as OCCUPATION DOUBLE and BIG BROTHER CÉLÉBRITÉS, to build an engaging community around our shows. We're also delighted to welcome some new stars to our lineup, which will help consolidate our position in the variety and comedy segments, both for Noovo and our Specialty channels. Our Original Productions are performing remarkably well, especially during peak viewing hours. This reflects the time and money invested by our teams, who are working closely with key players in the industry to offer the finest entertainment content to our viewers and listeners."
THE STUNNING RISE OF NOOVO
Noovo is now well-established in the Quebec media landscape, with its own distinctive style and identity. Relative to the competition, the channel achieved the strongest year-on-year growth among Adults 25-54, and its ten most-watched shows are all original Quebec productions. As the conventional channel that attracts the youngest viewers, with an average age of 48, Noovo offers an ideal target audience for advertisers. There's clearly a strong appetite for its original series: all of the channel's new original dramas made audience gains of 200% in their respective timeslots relative to the previous year.
