An offbeat pop show about female empowerment… and spies!

It’s the early Eighties near Toulouse, the birthplace of France’s aeronautic industry. The daily routine of Karine, a housewife in her forties, is upended by the arrival of a new neighbor – Jane, freshly arrived from the US. She brings a breath of modernity into the small residential suburb… and the gym too, introducing Karine and her friends to aerobics !

But behind her smiles and shiny leotards, Jane seems very interested in Project 37, a top-secret endeavor run by Karine’s husband Didier. Could there be more to Jane than meets the eye?

Our take

A tribute, as the title suggests, to the days of Veronique and Davina, to perms, to fringed jackets and orange coloured interiors. This new OCS signature series, which smells of the 80’s, is a laugh-out-loud comedy that looks at its characters with infinite tenderness and that combines aerobics, aeronautics and industrial espionage!
