Pitched by some as France’s answer to The Wire, this series, created by Alexandra Clert and Guy-Patrick Saninderichin, offers a stylish look at the various cogs in the machinery of the French justice system through the eyes of a young Deputy Public Prosecutor, a Police Captain, a Preliminary Judge and a Criminal Lawyer. Broadcast in more than 70 countries, season 5 sees the series’ protagonists investigating a ghastly double murder that will plunge them deep into organized crime, narks, and girl gangs. The intensity of the ensuing manhunt will lead to unexpected alliances and mark definitive breaks in the team. No one will come through unscathed.
