Virgin TV invites viewers to take a trip down the Chaussée d’Amour

December 7, 2017

Virgin TV has launched a gritty new TV Exclusive, Chaussée d’Amour, available to Virgin TV Full House customers.

An original commission produced by the Liberty Global owned Telenet in Belgium, and directed by noir veterans Frank Devos and Pieter Van Hees, Chaussée d’Amour brings gripping drama to the living room in a raw and addictive depiction of life on this infamous brothel-lined street. The programme is shown in Dutch with English subtitles and all ten hour-long episodes of Season 1 are now available to watch on demand.

The moody character-driven story unfolds through the eyes of Sylvia Carlier, a distinguished woman fleeing a crumbling marriage. She is forced by financial necessity to take on the running of a brothel inherited after the untimely death of her father. Following the discovery of human remains on the Chaussée d’Amour, the plot evolves through Sylvia’s fight to support her two children and build a new life in the midst of a twisting murder investigation.

David Bouchier, Chief Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media, said: “For Virgin TV the launch of Chaussée d’Amour represents an exciting step into the evolving and provocative realm of ‘Flemish noir,’ which is in keeping with our strong record of bringing new, exclusive programming designed to challenge and excite customers. Chaussée d’Amour ticks all of these boxes, an example of the some of the most edgy, engaging and gripping content European drama has to offer.”

Along with all Virgin TV Exclusives, Chaussée d’Amour is available On Demand through the Virgin TV V6 or TiVo boxes as well as on mobile devices through the Virgin TV Anywhere app available on iOS and Android.

As Virgin Media’s latest exclusive UK launch, Chaussée d’Amour follows in the footsteps of hugely successful box sets of Ash vs Evil Dead, Kingdom, Imposters and more recently, Good Behavior. Virgin Media now boasts an exciting library of exclusive programmes – all available for Virgin ‘Full House TV’ (previously known as XL TV) customers at no extra charge.
