Parliamentarians, ministers, trade unionists, there are about twenty to participate in Estatesthe new series at 1:15 p.m. on Sundays, the second episode of which will be posted on France.tv from Thursday June 1 and broadcast this weekend in the magazine presented by Laurent Delahousse.

The idea is to tell a story based on reality. Each character, equipped with a lapel microphone, plays their own role and lives their real life, under the eye of a camera. A new, modern way of approaching politics. Estates will return six or seven times a year until 2027, the year of the election of Emmanuel Macron’s successor. Jean-Michel Carpentier, the editor-in-chief of 1:15 p.m., Sunday is the media guest of Célyne Baÿt-Darcourt.
