AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS
France, United Kingdom - 2021
Ashley Pharoah, Caleb Ranson

Season 1 - 8x52' | World Premiere
In English with French subtitles
Ep. 1 & 2

Synopsis
London, 1872. Phileas Fogg (David Tennant) accepts a crazy wager to circumnavigate the globe in eighty days. Fogg is at best ill-prepared and will need all the resilience he can muster along with the assistance of quick-witted Frenchman, Passepartout. Joining them is journalist Abigail Fix who came up with the whole crazy idea in the first place.

Note from the artistic direction
This new adaptation of the Phileas Fogg adventures brings us back into the universe of Jules Verne, full of fantasy. This European coproduction - shot in live action and led by the incredible performance of one of the best British actors of his generation, David Tennant – attests to the ambition of the big historical TV channels in the face of the multiplication of series produced by digital platforms. A success!
