first info on the live-action tv series that will take place on

No, you’re not dreaming and it’s by no means an early April 1st: the animated Cat’s Eye, which today rocked the childhood of so many forties, is being adapted into a TV series of 8 episodes of 52 minutes. If the news has been circulating social networks and the front page of the media for a few minutes, in reality the information had already been revealed by LeParisien in early March. It is TF1 that is at the origin of this somewhat crazy project, undoubtedly boosted by the success of Nicky Larson by Philippe Lacheau in 2018. The two works have the author in common, as they are both drawn by Tsukasa Hōjō, who is behind these two anime . A first poster of this Cat’s Eye signed TF1 was published on the cover of Le Film Français, stating that shooting of this series will begin in Paris in autumn 2023, as we can see from this Eiffel Tower in the middle of the image .

For now, the casting has not yet been chosen, but TF1 knows it is playing big, as the success of this series will also be based on the nostalgia of the viewers. Will the writers have the guts to cast Asian actresses for the three dashing sisters to stick with the source material, or will we be whitewashed as is often the case? The question must be asked. In any case, TF1 sees it big for this series that will not appear on the small screen until the autumn of 2024, knowing that there are wishes to also sell the series internationally…

From the production elements known, we know that the project is supervised by director Alexandre Laurent, who already has two other TF1 series to his credit, namely “Combattantes” and “Bazar de la Charité”. Not pfff, we agree on that. It is otherwise produced by the production company Big Band Story (“Bellefond”, “Léo Matteï”) and written by many people, namely Michel Catz, Justine Kim-Gautier, Antonin Martin-Hilbert, Anne-Charlotte Kassab, Coline Dussaud and Audrey Gagneux . The series tells the origin of the Cat’s Eyes trio, consisting of Sylia, Tam and Alexia, when they have to improvise burglars in the most beautiful and safest monuments in Paris. We remember that in the cartoon our three wives are waitresses in a cafe by day and burglars by night with the aim of recovering the paintings that belonged to their father who mysteriously disappeared. Inspector Quentin Chapuis is in charge of the investigation, but he never succeeds in catching these thieves, for the simple reason that he has a relationship with Tam, who plays with him.
