ACCÈS ILLIMITÉ WELCOMES SPECIAL COLLABORATOR MARIPIER MORIN
Montréal, January 9, 2016 – TVA, in collaboration with Quebecor Content, is pleased to announce that Maripier Morin is joining the team on the entertainment news show Accès illimité, produced by Productions Déferlantes. She’ll be appearing alongside hosts Anouk Meunier and Jean-Philippe Dion starting January 29 at 9 p.m., for a 7th season that’s sure to be full of surprises.
To the delight of viewers, the new season will include 13 episodes – great news for the many fans who tuned in to the four shows which aired last fall, drawing an average audience of 1,135,000*.
Always eager to give fans even more, Anouk and Jean-Philippe are delighted to welcome Maripier Morin as a special collaborator. She’ll be adding her special touch to the show on several occasions throughout the season. Maripier is a beloved personality who’s developed her own unique entertainment reporting expertise through the years, and she recently launched her TV hosting career with outstanding success. She is now thrilled to embark on this new adventure on Accès illimité, after being a guest on the show herself.
“This year on Accès illimité, we want to mix things up for our viewers, and the addition of Maripier is a big part of that game plan,” explains Jean-Philippe Dion, executive producer, Productions Déferlantes. “Throughout the season, we’ve got about 30 artists lined up for the show, and we can’t wait to reveal their names in the next few days.”
“Anouk, Jean-Philippe and Maripier form an exciting trio that already made its mark last spring during the Artis Awards red carpet special,” adds Ginette Viens, Vice-president, Brands & Content, Quebecor Content. “Mariper’s spontaneous personality fits in perfectly with the show’s style, and we have no doubt that her contribution will be a big plus for our vast audience.”
January 29 at 9 p.m.: Welcome Rachid Badouri, Safia Nolin and P.K. Subban!
The new season of Accès illimité kicks off with a mixed bag of special guests, as Jean-Philippe catches up with Rachid Badouri in Paris, where the comic has set up house with his family for the next few months as he begins his conquest of France. Anouk will present an emotional interview with singer/songwriter Safia Nolin, who reveals the woman behind the image. And Maripier debuts her collaboration in full force, as she gets up-close and personal with the one and only P.K. Subban during a photo shoot in Nashville.
