Titles provided by the programmer include a number of francophone offerings such as Thérapie, a series of celebrity interviews by psychoanalyst Fernando de Amorim, hair salon documentary Real par Soul Sisters, and chef Romauld Royer’s take on street pizza, Au camion, as well as international shows Dark Side of the 90s, Rise Up, The Story Of, Gaycation, The Trixie and Katya Show and What Would Diplo Do?.
