TV series to film in Sturgeon Falls

Will the teams be able to recognize the truth from false, and trust the “correct” twin? Or will they lose precious time being sent in the wrong direction?
Les jumelles 2016

Balestra Productions will be in Sudbury and in Sturgeon Falls on August 10 and 11 to film two episodes for their fourth season of “Les jumelles”, a televised treasure hunt.  

It will air on TFO (French Ontario Television) in the fall of 2017.  

“Les jumelles” (which means “twins” in English), is hosted by identical twin sisters, Catherine and Julie, in an amusing and entertaining 30-minute television family show pitting two local teams on a treasure hunt around town.  

Balestra Productions has decided to present a special edition, this year, by introducing two local teams formed by a grand-parent and his/her grand-child.  They will be walking and driving around the two cities to find the clues that will lead them to the hidden treasure.  First team to arrive will win $200.

The two teams competing in Sturgeon Falls are :

  • Team #1 -  Thirteen year old, Joé Brouillette with his 69 years old grand-father, Luc Venne.  Both from Verner.   
  • Team #2 – Ten year old, Anicka Comeau with her 84 year old grand-mother Roseanne Comeau, both from Sturgeon Falls.  

The television series is hosted by two identical twins.  

As hosts, they guide the two teams through the race providing advice and letting them know when they are behind or when their time’s up. The only difference between the two is that one of them tends to give false information, while the other has the correct information.
