This highly dramatic fictional series features mysterious and mesmerizing characters who lead viewers into an incomparable thriller with fantastical overtones. With its clever intrigue, the series is like nothing else on Quebec TV – the work of talented creators Estelle Bouchard, Patrick Lowe and Charles-Olivier Michaud.
It tells the story of a family being pursued and fighting for its survival. Clara Jacob is a seemingly ordinary mother who only wants the best for her children, Arnaud and Liliane, and her grandchildren, Félicia and Romain. But the Jacob family is actually not ordinary at all: their blessing – or their curse – is that each of them is gifted. They can see into the future, hypnotize people, read their thoughts, and even heal them. These extraordinary individuals have all learned to keep their powers under wraps and blend in with the rest of society, but because they’re so different, some people just want to eliminate them.
Will Clara succeed in protecting her loved ones and escape the witch hunt? The series will keep viewers in suspense for 10 weeks, thanks to the work of a stellar cast:
Pascale Bussières Clara Jacob
Sophie Desmarais Liliane Jacob, Clara’s daughter
Mikhaïl Ahooja Arnaud Jacob, Clara’s son and Liliane’s twin brother
Jade Charbonneau Félicia Jacob, Liliane’s daughter
Liam Patenaude Romain Jacob, Arnaud’s son
Benoît Gouin Jules, Clara’s ex-husband
Lucie Laurier Anouk, investigator and Jules’ wife
Éric Bruneau Pascal, Jacob family victim
Marc Messier William, the hunter
“What makes Prémonitions such a powerful and unique series is the passionate work of my creative partners Estelle and Patrick, the producers at Encore, and the exceptionally talented cast and crew,” explains creative developer and director Charles-Olivier Michaud. “I have to admit, it’s the project that I’m most proud of.”
