LE SIÈGE

Le siègeMonday 9:00 p.m.* 6 episodes Starring: Denise Bouchard, Alexandre Goyette, Gilles Renaud, Lou Poirier Director: Jim Donavan A highly topical drama series The small one-industry town of Cole Creek is in a state of shock. The local thermoforming plant is pulling up stakes, meaning that 1,000 people will lose their jobs and the town might just disappear. Canadian Smiths-Thompson, the company that owns the plant, has even asked employees to stay on another month to help dismantle the production equipment so it can be shipped to the new facility in Saskatoon. Led by their very passive union president, Mario Cormier (Gilles Renaud), the employees stage a symbolic one-day strike, despite being generally resigned to their fate. No one is really expecting anything to come of it. At least, not until the impulsive Alexis Godin's (Alexandre Goyette) gang takes advantage of the situation to sneak into the company offices toting a bag full of weapons. What was supposed to be an uneventful one-day demonstration turns into a high-tension hostage-taking. A regional production that delivers quality drama on par with Le Clan. ​​​​​​​​​​​​*Subject to change without notice.
