Cat People Review 2021 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew
Creator: Glen Zipper
Cats are often portrayed as independent, aloof and somehow less loveable than dogs – they are even regularly cast as the villains in movies like Cats & Dogs and Lady And The Tramp – but they finally get the adoration they deserve in new Netflix documentary series Cat People.
Aiming to dispel the image of the ‘cat lady’ (usually a lonely spinster with hundreds of pet kitties), or cats as the villain’s fluffy evil sidekick (James Bond villain Blofeld, Austin Powers’ nemesis Dr Evil and Hogwarts’ Dolores Umbridge all had feline pals) the six-part series meets a range of different pet owners who all feel they aren’t anything like the negative stereotype.
Their cats aren’t ordinary, either, and if you have ever brightened your day by looking at cat videos on YouTube, you will recognise some of the talented furballs who surf, skateboard and even play the piano in Netflix’s light-hearted documentary.
The six-episode documentary series Cat People launches on Netflix on Wednesday 7th July.
You can watch a teaser for Cat People below, which offerings a light-hearted look at the series exploring felines and their families.
In case you hadn’t already guessed, Cat People is about cats, cats, and more cats, and the people who love them.
Created by Glen Zipper, who also made the popular Netflix documentary Dogs, Cat People explores our relationships with the furry felines and some of the cat people around the world who rescue, befriend and celebrate the notoriously independent creatures.
The six-part documentary also invites us to meet some of the quirkier cats and their owners, including a cat that surfs, one that plays the drums (as part of a band named The Rock Cats, of course), and an owner who throws elaborate birthday parties for her pet.
The filmmakers also visit the island of Syros in Greece, where locals help to protect the large community of Instagram-famous cats that live there.
