“The Shakers” is a nice and easy TV series. Inspired by the 60’s, the action takes place in a retro stylized Hong Kong.
Good lifestyle, shiny and happy people, beautiful cars, attractive bimbos, amazing secret agents, old-fashioned super-heroes, fantasy, vintage design and great dreams... Add colorful action, humor, great food and tasty cocktails and you’ve got what “the Shakers” are all about!
Welcome to a good looking and smart world !
But behind this glossy picture, things are more complicated. Some super-heroes are too old, some others can't adapt to the post-modern times... And adventure is not enough: a hero also needs money !
The Shakers is a hidden group of these last heroes who are still trying to protect the city, but who are losing their souls and their hopes. Independent, they sometimes live their own adventures, and are not really a team. They only stay together because they are lonely and lost.
“The Shakers”: a mix of "swinging Hong Kong" and jazzy atmosphere, sometime light, sometime dark, just like a smocky piano-bar can be.
