Marseille: the Made In France political soap

Marseille Serie

For whom? Amateurs of political thrillers on a vengeance rampage.

Corruption, political treasons and power plays… If you liked House of Cards and Baron Noir, you will adore Marseille, the first French production of Netflix signed Dan Franck, author of “Hommes de l’Ombre” (with Nathalie Baye). Lead actor: Gérard Depardieu, Magimel and Géraldine Pailhas: heavy duty !

The pitch? A real political heavyweight and coke addict, Robert Taro (superbly played by Gérard Depardieu) overlords Marseille since 20 years. On the eve of his retirement, his successor and adoptive son, Lucas Barrès (Benoit Magimel) pulls a Brutus and betrays him. Vengeance is in the air.

The small plus? The love story between the mayor’s daughter and a neighborhood big boss…

The series is available starting the 5th of May on Netflix. We like the possibility of watching the two first episodes on TFI the 12th of May at 8:55pm.
