Check out the trailer for Je Te Promets, the French version of the This Is Us series.
Currently in the United States, season 5 of This Is Us is a hit and full of new revelations for the Pearson family. Since the start of its broadcast in September 2016 on NBC, many viewers have fallen in love with the endearing characters of the series. Faced with this American success, France decided to create its own remake, called I promise you ! If all goes well, next February, we should discover the 12 episodes of this new series TF1 inspired straight by This Is Us… In the trailer that has just been unveiled, we can indeed very quickly find the touch of the American series. Between the complicity of the family, the presence of the protective father figure, or the tensions between the two brothers, we discover a copy almost identical to the original version.
The scenario of I promise you is identical to that of This Is Us. A mother gives birth to triplets and loses one, before adopting a small child abandoned the same day, black in color. He will then go in search of identity to find his biological parents, while his brother will experience the setbacks of his acting career, while his sister will struggle against weight problems. At the casting, we will find Camille Lou (Florence, aka Rebecca), Hugo Becker (Paul, aka Jack), Marilou Berry (Maud, aka Kate), Guillaume Labbé (Michaël, aka Kevin) and Narcisse Mame (Mathis, aka Randall). Xavier Gandon, director of the group’s TV and digital antennas TF1, described I promise you as “the new great family series of TF1, which will make viewers pass from laughter to tears”. It remains to be seen whether it will affect us as much as This Is Us, whose distribution could be turned upside down in the United States because of a peak in Covid-19 contaminations.
