-"Scoop" is a 52-episode (45-minute, in four seasons) Quebec television series created by Fabienne Larouche and Réjean Tremblay and aired from January 8, 1992 to April 6, 1995 on Télévision de Radio-Canada. "Scoop" is set in the universe of a major daily newspaper in Montreal (Canada), 'L'Express'. It follows the activities of the various people involved in news production, including journalists and personalities of the moment. They include ambitious journalist Stéphanie Rousseau (Macha Grenon), daughter of the newspaper's owner (Claude Léveillée), bureau chief Lionel Rivard (Rémi Girard), ambitious journalist Michel Gagné (Roy Dupuis), clumsy journalist Richard Fortin (Martin Drainville) and labour union president Léonne Vigneault (Francine Ruel).
Drama about newspaper journalists and their lives exposed
Scoop is steamy romance, crime uncovered, media concentration, illegal immigration and scandal all wrapped up in an hour-long package.
Dubbed in English, Scoop covers the issues of the day while digging into the lives of reporters of a fictional daily Montréal Newspaper, The Express.
Stephanie Rousseau (Macha Grenon) and Michael Gagné (Roy Dupuis) find love and conflict in their professional lives at the newspaper office and in the bedroom. The fact that Stephanie's father is the wealthiest man in Québec and owns The Express becomes temporarily, immaterial.
In one episode their relationship appears cemented when Michael is trapped in a mine while covering a story on mine workers and Stephanie waits in hope of good news on the surface.
Michael becomes the "bad boy" when he leaves Stephanie and their baby to live on his own. Will they get back together?
Will Richard (Martin Drainville) ever find fulfillment in writing an arts column instead of sports? Will the source of desk editor, Lionel's (Rémy Girard) drinking on the job and mystery of his roomate come to light?
All this and the reporters continue to cover corrupt government deals, racial discrimination, homelessnes, organised crime and abused women and children.
Fans of the "Lou Grant" series should see this one!
