Never the little boy I was in the 80s would have imagined that our Japanese cartoons that were considered works of the devil would be at the center of pop culture 30/40 years later.

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.
