Por those who might have missed it, Francis Lalanne created “Narcisse Lalanne”, a character on the show Fort Boyard, between 2016 and 2019. Between him and the show’s production company, the story continued before the court. Thursday, the industrial tribunal of Rochefort (Charente-Maritime) sentenced Adventure Line Production (ALP) to pay nearly 10,000 euros in compensation to the singer. He obtained the requalification of these contracts signed during these years, according to him broken abusively by ALP – which also produces Koh Lanta.
In its deliberation, the Rochefort court reclassified the CDDs as CDIs and ordered ALP to pay compensation for notice, damages and interest and, finally, dismissal. The production company will also have to return to Francis Lalanne the hat used to play his character but will be able to keep the long wooden pipe, also claimed by “Narcisse”. Chance of the calendar, this decision was made the day the shooting of the new season began.
“This trial illustrates the problem of production companies that manage reality TV in particular”
“This trial illustrates the problem of production companies that manage reality TV in particular,” confided Reims lawyer Emmanuel Ludot, who defends Francis Lalanne, yesterday. According to him, his client owes his eviction from the show “to his membership in the movement of yellow vests”, basing himself for this on the testimony of Mister Boo, the “Mister Muscle” of Fort Boyard, for whom he had also obtained the reclassification of contracts – the case must be judged on appeal in Poitiers.
“For these shows, they are made to sign usage contracts that frankly do not respect the labor code, continues Me Ludot, who has been defending the singer for years. Nothing is said about the number of hours to be worked, rest periods, etc. They are somewhat treated like slaves and almost everyone crashes against these societies. »
