TV show ‘Spies’ bigscreen spinoff

French show a global hit

Global hit TV show “Totally Spies” is poised to come to the bigscreen in a $7 million movie.

Sales agent Daniel Marquet is touting a script of the new pre-production project to buyers here in Cannes.

“Totally Spies” was conceived and produced by Marathon’s David Michel and Vincent Chalvon-Demersay.

They’ve also come up with the storyline for the movie, which will recount the back story of the high- school girl spies, said Chalvon-Demersay.

“It will show how they met and how they got to become spies, something that has never been touched on in the series,” he said.

Show about a trio of spies, whose secret weapons include laser lipstick and drill stilettos, airs on dozens of nets around the world, including Cartoon Network in the U.S., Germany’s Super RTL and Italy’s Mediaset.

In parts of Asia the show goes out on Disney Channel and in Latin America it airs on Mexico’s Televisa and Globo in Brazil.

In France, where it is produced by Gallic production powerhouse Marathon, “Totally Spies” enjoys the same levels of popularity as “SpongeBob SquarePants” in the U.S., with TF1 airing some 250 episodes annually. It consistently draws a 50% audience share among 4- to 10-year-olds.

Season five is in the works now.
