Canal’s ‘Le Petit Journal’ ditches globe, adds unique intro for new season
French entertainment-news program “Le Petit Journal” debuted a new look complete with a new open that introduces a “day in the life” multi-scene sequence featuring host Cyrille Eldin last week. The change comes after Yann Barthès departure from the program to rival network TF1, where he has launched a similar show using some of the same staff and talent as “LPJ.”
In the open, viewers first see Eldin in a home based scene. As the camera moves from left to right, Eldin is placed in a variety of scenes that depict, in a varying level of seriousness, a typical day of a TV host, if you will.
