A French Cat's Eye series in production
The TF1 network is working on producing a French series that adapts the famous manga of Tsukasa Hôjô Signed Cat's Eyes.
Through the president of the TF1 network, Rodolphe Belmer, we learned this week that the network is preparing a live series adapted from the cult manga by Tsukasa Hôjô, Cat's Eye. It appears that Alexandre Laurent, who has been behind several series for the network, would have been entrusted with the director role.
Cat's Eye follows the adventures of three sisters, Hitomi, Rui, and Ai Kisugi, who are working as servers in a cafe called Cat's Eye by day and are burglars by night. However, it is not the lure of money that they are after by stealing art, but clues about the mysterious disappearance of their father. The sisters find themselves in the sights of detective Toshio Utsumi, who tries to capture them, but to no avail. He is unaware that the mysterious criminal he is chasing after is none other than his fiancée Hitomi.
Cat's Eye is not the first work of Tsukasa Hôjô to receive an adaptation by a French production. In 2019 the master's other iconic series, City Hunter, was turned into a feature film directed by Philippe Lachaud, which was met with great success in Japan.
