It's no secret that you don't really know a person, until you've travelled together. That is exactly what Philippe Geubels, the Flemish comedy darling, does in Taboo. He invites four guests for a holiday in a lovely country house. The guest list is very diversified. In season 1 we met people who are incurably ill, physically challenged, people with visual disability, people suffering from obesity, people in poverty, LGBT and people with different skin color, or a psychic vulnerability. Philippe listens to their stories and he gets to know them while sightseeing through the countryside.
But that's not all of it. Humour prevails in Taboo. Philippe challenges his guests to hit the streets in some hilarious candid camera scenes. Afterwards, he does what he does best: stand-up comedy. Philippe performs a comedy set on every topic, with his new friends front row, at a venue packed with people who are in the same situation.
All these ingredients blend into Taboo. It is the very first Philippe Geubels tv-show for één and it's a unique mix of human interest and comedy, connecting people through humour.
We are happy to announce that the second season will air in the spring of 2021 on één.
The remarkable qualities of Taboo didn't go unnoticed abroad. In Australia, Switzerland and Canada a remake has already aired. At this very moment, production is under way in Spain. Options to produce Taboo are sold to the USA, England, France, Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
