DESCRIPTION:
(from Netflix's press release, November 2017) Netflix, the world's leading internet entertainment service, is doubling down on French comedy star Gad Elmaleh, bringing the humorist's first original series Huge in France, as well as an English language stand-up special, exclusively to Netflix members around the world. Huge in France will be co-created, executive produced by and will star Gad Elmaleh, with showrunners Jarrad Paul and Andy Mogel (The D-Train, The Grinder) also serving as co-creators and executive producers. The eight-episode series is inspired by Gad's own life and career, and follows his move from France to the United States. Gad is a hugely famous comedian... In France. At an emotional crossroads, he leaves it all behind and moves to Los Angeles in an attempt to reconnect with his estranged, comedy hating, 16-year-old male model son. Sadly he'll have to do it without a single celebrity perk. This half-hour comedy series marks the continuation of the relationship between Netflix and Gad Elmaleh, which began in January 2017 with the premiere of Gad Gone Wild, and will now include both Huge in France and Gad's brand new English language stand-up special next year.
