Disney has announced a “Week-End Family” holiday special will be coming to Disney+ on Friday, December 9, 2022.
The French Disney+ Original Series follows the exploits of a chaotic, endearing ‘super-blended’ family. Every weekend, fun-loving Fred (Eric Judor) has custody of his three very different daughters – idealistic Clara (Liona Bordonaro); quirky Victoire (Midie Dreyfus); and demanding Romy (Roxane Barrazuol). This would be complicated enough, but their three mothers (Annelise Hesme, Jeanne Bournaud and Annabel Lopez) and Fred’s best friend Stan (Hafid F. Benamar) are always on the scene as well, making the weekends a little bit more frenetic. But Fred has fallen in love again, and he wants to move his girlfriend in with him. Emmanuelle (Daphné Côté Hallé) is a Canadian emigrant with no experience of parenting, and only a half-finished PhD in child psychology. With the support of Fred and the not-so-helpful advice of her best friend, Cora (Sephora Pondi), Emmanuelle will have to put her books and theories aside and find her own way as step-mother to this crazy weekend family.
In the holiday special, it’s the first Christmas in France for Emma ( Daphné Coté-Hallé ), Fred ( Eric Judor ) and the girls ( Liona Bordonaro , Midie Dreyfus , Roxane Barazzuol ) decide to cook her a feast, but Emma doesn’t celebrate Christmas in the same way. This special features a charity show in Quebec and some problems with the in-laws and ex’s.
The show is written by Eric Judor, Hafid F. Benamar, and Baptiste Nicolaï and produced by ELEPHANT. It will be directed by Pierre-François Martin-Laval .
All eight episodes from Season 1 of “Weekend Family” are available to stream now on Disney+. Season 2 of the series will release on DIsney+ in 2023.
