The book behind the scenes of the Grand Journal

Le Livre Choc Sur Les Coulisses Du Grand Jounral

His stint at the Grand Journal show was short lived, but Ollivier Pourriol, the novelist-philosopher «with salt-and-pepper hair », has juicy anecdotes to tell about his TV experience.

Comment a book without having read it, marching orders barked into the earpiece, mike cut off to avoid squatting too much air time… The one who was hired to incarnate « the brainy slot» of the bunch spares no details and does not hesitate to retranscribe his often acerbic conversations with the production team.

We like : knowing the little behind the scenes secrets of a show, in order to finally discover the other side of the TV set.

"On/Off" by Ollivier Pourriol
