It’s no longer a secret to anyone, and certainly not to the fans, More beautiful life will bow out on November 18 after 18 years on the air. A great void certainly for the faithful of the daily meeting, but also a great frustration for the technical teams and the actors. Frustration is even too weak a word if we are to believe the reaction of Laurent Kérusoré, alias Thomas Marci in the soap opera.
In an interview given to Paris here, he does not mince his words. His target: Delphine Ernotte, the president of France Télévisions. “I thought that the public service was proud to have us… A priori not, because it seems that we are too popular and that Mrs. Ernotte wants to do culture… Apparently, popular culture does not interest her! is not even moved to announce the bad news to us”he hammers.
He is not more tender with the one who was responsible for announcing the decision, namely Stéphane Sitbon-Gomez, the director of antennas and programs at France Télévisions: “We were fired by an enarque who, in two years, will work in a bank or at Orange.” Vibe.
Beyond the stories of people, it is above all incomprehension that prevails in the chef of Laurent Kérusoré, who has been present for 17 years in More beautiful life : “The series had become the antidepressant of the French. […] Removing a program that helps people is pathetic from a public service channel.” And to conclude: “We have often been ahead of the curve on many social issues and its evolution. We are very proud of that.”
