Kitty Kathstone is a fantasy-mystery drama rooted in mythology, captured in
three seasons. Dealing with mythology from all around the world, a wide range
of characters, and a general core conflict, valid in all cultures, the show is
designed to address a wide audience of ages and demographics.
Set in our own world, exploring the mythological realm and its ancient
creatures hidden in the midst of our world. Some of them fulfill a special duty
to all living kinds: guarding the stones of the seven virtues and seven deadly
sins, to preserve the fragile equilibrium of this world –although in power it's
not always easy to keep balance, because one day you may get corrupted by
your own ego.
Inspired by the fantasy and adventure-classics of the ‘80s and early ‘90s that
gave us gripping, sometimes deeply terrifying moments, by entering sinister
matters. Providing us with a journey from the known to the unknown, while
capturing important aspects of human experience, reflecting the struggle with
the darkness of human condition – something you particularly encounter
when entering adulthood.
A show giving you wonder and fear while immersing a strange new world –
sinister, enchanting, mysterious. Inhabited by the most ancient creatures and
something dark lurking in the shadows over thousands of years, awaiting us
and the mythological community, ready to strike.
A daring, cinematic, funny, and gripping adventure straight into adulthood,
rooted in character, only survived by friendship, which comes along with tears
and laughter, a grain of philosophy, and a deep love for cinema and myth.
“THE POWER OF MYTH” – THE SHOW'S BACKBONE
Everybody loves myths, as “The Power of Myth” – one of the most popular
series in the history of American public television – shows. In 1988, it was
Joseph Campbell and Bill Moyers that made people sit glued to their
televisions, to participate in their six-hour conversation about myth.
"The Power of Myth" roots in the fact to be a guide to the human race,
teaching common lessons, helping to balance the outside world with the
The word mythology means nothing else than the spoken story of people,
stories with basic patterns and common truth. And so, with every creation
myth in our world, each starting with dualism, there comes along the question
In order to understand and appreciate the good, we must experience the bad.
But in the end, we only achieve real awareness by following the middle way.
And even if everything is based on good intentions in the beginning, it will be
lost, as soon as the middle way is left – imbalance being a supreme matter to
all of us – an issue now maybe more important than ever.
And that's exactly where we meet the backbone of our show, the main theme
balance mirrored in the story-arc, in each character's arc, even of our
sidekicks, the whole mythological community itself and its world. Our
protagonist and antagonist experience this on the scope of love and hate, in
the very end demanding a decision, that lies between revenge and forgiveness
Often forgotten that our culture inherited quite a lot from Sumerian
mythology, our story will have its roots there, reaching up to today, giving us
a cutting-edge show, by entering the realm of mythology, filled with stunning
creatures from all around the globe, while experiencing a tragic mystery
around love, despair, hate, and revenge, nearly taking the world off its hinges
by the threat of imbalance.
We enter the story by drifting through absolute darkness, whispering voices,
slowly encountering schemes, a scream of despair breaking through. The gentle
voice of narrator SIR LARRY warns of the upcoming events, introducing us to
the roots of this story: PAIN and INJUSTICE. Continuing in the present at the
stormy nightfall of All Hallows' Eve in a town called Little's Law, we meet
troublemaker KITTY KATHSTONE, black-eyed, in front of the headmaster's
office waiting for her mom EMILIA to pick her up. Both are on their own, as
her father JAMES recently vanished on an archaeological expedition into thin
air. And in this very night, the night of her fifteenth birthday, everything should
change for Kitty. Her rakish grandmother VICTORIA, a rare visitor, turns up,
revealing to the very discomfort of Emilia that the family’s maternal line
originates from WERECATS, fulfilling quite a special duty, confronting Kitty
with the fact that she will attend C.O.G. (Central Organization of Guardians)
from now on. Soon Kitty will learn that THE GUARDIANS balance the SEVEN
CARDINAL VIRTUES and SEVEN DEADLY SINS with the help of special
stones, to preserve the fragile equilibrium of our world.
So the next day Kitty finds herself surrounded by life-threatening GORGONS,
bold (sometimes pretzel-addict) VALKYRIES, earth-shaking GIANTS, breathtaking
JAPANESE UNICORNS, and many more eye-stunning
MYTHOLOGICAL CREATURES from all around the globe, an unknown realm
hidden in the midst of our world. Not only finding new friends there, like hypernervous,
shapeshifter NORA NEEDLE, but also coming upon her family's
enemies, the LYKANS. And while she dives deeper and deeper into this mystical
world, encountering its habits and rules, educated by quite peculiar teachers (a
JAPANESE FOX-GHOST, a choleric JINN, a wise ICE-DRAGON, a militant
CENTAUR, and the dead-born WATCHMEN of the guardians), she soon finds
herself on a track that leads her straight into a DARK FAMILY SECRET – a
MYSTERIOUS VILLAIN awaiting her, developing a devilish plan over
thousands of years, now ready to strike. And while Victoria and ARMAND try
to get things back under control, by outplaying their opponents and holding the
COUNCIL at bay, the kids get in the line of fire, soon finding themselves on a
breath-taking journey – a race against destiny itself, which navigates them
around the world, not only finding their ordeals in the mythological realm, the
outside world, but also their inside world – as coming of age is never an easy
Over the course of the show, we will witness outstanding creatures and places
– featuring the GOLDEN 8-INCH STATUE of a HIPPOCAMP (SEAHORSE),
who is a spitting poser, or a two-headed NAGA (SNAKE) in an existential crisis,
that guards the gates of the biggest black market, the GHOST-TOWN KHARA
KOTO located in Desert Gobi. There we’ll meet the OLDEST JINN in the world,
AISHA QUANDISHA, the owner of the market and someone you’d better not
trust. Moreover, we’ll witness a fight with ancient MUSHUSSU, coming to live
at the PERGAMONMUSEUM in BERLIN, alongside finding LYSANDER, the
forbidden son of a Watchman, who turns out to be Kitty's counterpart. Or
watching Nora Needle, while nearly freezing like a popsicle in YAKUTSK (the
coldest city of the world), after taking a ride on the ORIENT–EXPRESS,
accompanied by the NORNS and THE EYE – just to meet a giant white SNAKE
LADY, a SAHMARAN, at the GATE OF ALL NATIONS, while TISIPHONE
(FURY) still breathes down their necks.
But apart from all these story-driven elements, we will also take a closer look
at the inward journey of our characters.
A heartbroken KITTY changes from an oriental short hair into a white tiger
and so nearly gets burned to ashes, rescuing herself by admitting her love to
someone quite unexpected – LYSANDER. Or Nora Needle’s desperate
OPERATION VENUS, including an extra portion of pheromones, to finally win
over ALEXANDER'S heart – her long-time crush, an unwanted child, who
learns with the help of Nora that his self-worth must not be defined by his
Furthermore, featuring the nail-art obsessed MERMAID ANGUANA, who
paints Botticelli's “The Birth of Venus” on Nora's toenails, while MAGNUS
(CENTAUR) flexes his muscles to win Anguana's attention. And HILDEGARD
(VALKERY) receives her Valkyrie's voice, taking over responsibility for the
fallen – a heavy burden – nonetheless she celebrates her VALKYRIE'S SWEET
SIXTEEN, a party, which will rock the house and Flammenbart's nerves.
VICTORIA confesses her feelings to her long-time lover ARMAND, who gives
up his immortality for her and there’s still more to come.
More contemplative moments await us during GLACIE's (ICE-DRAGON)
philosophical ethics lessons, taking place in the C.O.G.'s enchanting garden,
learning that you have to follow your inner bliss. Or by meeting sensei
KITSUNE (JAPANESE FOX-GHOST) in her sinister chamber – never
answering, always asking, as awareness fosters improvement.
The real dark matters of the show will be mainly centered around SIR LARRY
(cursed narrator), VILLARD (narrator's cursed companion), INANNA
(Sumerian goddess), VICTORIA, ARMAND, NOCTUS LYKAN, AMBROSIUS
(elder Watchman), MEDUSA GORGON, FLAMMENBART
(caretaker/DWARF), FUNKELSTEIN (house-mother/DWARF) etc. – shortly
said "the Grown Ups" will lead us through the sinister course of the story;
therefore, we’ll visit the 19th century and look back into Sumerian times,
conjuring the moments that evoke our story.
During their journey, all characters reach the core of the matter,
acknowledging that Kitty's family history may not only have a potent effect on
their lives, but on the whole mythological realm itself – a world nowadays
mainly ruled by lust for power, greed, and envy, divided in itself – its original
duties long forgotten, losing balance more and more every day, thanks to the
self-centeredness of each tribe, forgetting that all things are connected in one
or another way – mirroring our own world.
A story, rich in character and conflict, catalyzed by a hushed-up, forgotten
destiny – a sin, nearly as old as the first letters written, now taking the world
off its hinges, supervised by the chain-smoking NORNS and their EYE ,
keeping things foggy, until time has come to reveal a heart-breaking and
upsetting tragedy around love, loss, despair, hate, revenge, and compassion,
stretching over centuries, taking place in the mysterious realm of mythology.
KITTY and LYSANDER being the key to salvation and therefore restoring the
world's balance – history repeating itself, but this time put into the hands of
the next generation, bringing it to an end by hopefully making a better
