The Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral, one of the finest jewels in town, at the heart of an upcoming Netflix series? This is what our peers from Le Film Français magazine lead us to believe, explaining it would be a miniseries on the fire from 2019, including six 60-minute long episodes. A documentary series created in partnership with the Brigade des Sapeurs Pompiers de Paris (Paris firefighters), and journalist Romain Gubert.
So far, no information about this new creation, its showrunner, nor its release date. Yet, it will not be the only series about the fire: another show, French as well, is said to be created, according to our peers from aufeminin.com website, based on the New York Times’s investigation on the matter: “When reading the investigation, we said with Pathé it would be an exceptional and international event series given the importance of the topic” the series producer, Philippe Rousselet, explains.
Moving on to movies, it is a bit of the same thing… In an interview with our peers from RTL, Jean-Jacques Annaud announced he was working on a movie focusing on the event from March 2019: “This is, perhaps, a crazy expectation, but this is a movie we want to do fast, while there is some impetus on the project” he said. He added: “I will have a part of Notre-Dame rebuilt on the night of the fire and the one that preceded, to live from the inside events that were both incredible, spectacular and full of emotions and suspense”.
Several contents will – in their own ways – give us different insights on that night and bring us some answers on questions we still might have.
