Extra TV in French is a 13 episode humorous video series for French students. Sam Scott, an American, comes to visit his former penpal, Sacha, who lives in a Paris apartment with her roommate, Annie. Nico, who is très cool, lives across the hall. Each 24 minute episode has a different theme and tells the story of the funny predicaments Sam gets into because of his poor French speaking skills.
