Broadcast on Antenne 2 in 1981, this mini-series launched Véronique Genest's acting career by making her a star. In her autobiography, the actress recalls how she got the role: "There were 500 suitors and I couldn't get an audition fixed. So I decided to leave the casting director a nude photo of myself wearing only socks. A few days later, Maurice Cazeneuve in person phoned me to make an appointment at his house in rue de Lille. I went in, he looked at me and I undressed. I was 22 and luckily I had no weight problems, I was thin but I had both butt and breasts. He told me he had seen my photo, he made me turn and walk. Finally he asked me to recite some lines and to rehearse a scene with him...A few days later I got the news that I was going to be Nana."
