Starting August 23, the M6 comedy series “Household Scenes” will welcome a new duo, Louise and Jalil, a couple in their thirties played by Claudia Mongumu (L’extraordinaire voyage du Fakir) and Ryad Baxx (Just Sam).
After Leo and Leslie, who arrived in 2018, the two new young men in turn join Liliane and José, Huguette and Raymond, Emma and Fabien, and Camille and Philippe. Viewers will discover them when they decide to change their lives by re-establishing themselves close to their (intrusive) relatives to take over the family restaurant.
“A little suffocated by the proximity of their respective families, they finally thought of emancipating themselves and putting a little distance behind by settling in Paris, where Louise was starting a career in the bank and Jalil was a firefighter. But when Jalil’s father announces the sale of his old bar, located in the neighborhood of his childhood in the middle of gentrification, for Louise it fits ”, announces M6 to announce these two new characters.
“She convinces Jalil to take advantage of the windfall to use his gift to cook and launch his restaurant,” continues the chain. While Louise will attempt this new beginning, Jalil, to help her achieve her goal, renounces the prestigious status of Paris firefighter for a position in the brigade of his provincial city of origin. This is how Louise and Jalil find their families, their friends, the anger and the domestic scenes that accompany it… ”.
Jalil’s relatives would have preferred that Louise, of Congolese origin, were like them of Algerian origin, a situation that generates “many funny and funny situations,” explained Claudia Mongumu to Allociné, but for Louise and Jalil the question of their origins. “It’s not really a question.” “They grew up together, that’s normal,” says the actress, who is grateful to see a mixed couple on television.
“When I was a child, growing up, there was not necessarily a representation of a certain France, of a certain form of diversity. So it’s great to be able to participate in that, estimates the actress. And so, with a lot of intelligence, nuances, complexity and humor in writing. Because the starting point of all this is making people laugh. And the authors support us well to carry out this mission. “
