COSMO Premieres the Acclaimed Series Paris Police 1900
On Thursday, September 8 at 10pm (CET) COSMO will premiere Paris Police 1900 for the first time in Spain, a shocking crime drama about the darker, true side of the Belle Époque. Inspired by the turbulent events in Paris at the end of the 19th century and with the famous Dreyfus case as a backdrop, this crime series narrates a disturbing story that speaks directly to the present.
Murders, blackmail, riots, and conspiracies take place in the City of Light in 1899. Harassed by the extreme right, anti-Semitic groups and growing lawlessness, France has never seemed so weak. The sudden death of the French president, Félix Faure, in the arms of his mistress, shakes the Third Republic further still.
The tragic discovery of a young woman's torso in a suitcase floating on the Seine is the starting point of Paris Police 1900. A young and ambitious detective, Antoine Jouin (Jérémie Laheurte) bursts into the police force to take on the case. But his investigation will ultimately uncover a plot with unexpected implications.
With a budget of 16 million euros for its first season, this Canal Plus and Studiocanal production has been a resounding success with both critics and audiences. In France, the eight episodes were watched by an average of six million viewers. Celebrated graphic novel author Fabien Nury (I Am Legion, Once Upon a Time in France) is the creator, screenwriter and also the producer of Paris Police 1900.
Last May COSMO premiered Paris Police 1900 at Serielizados Fest Ibiza, where the first episode received a warm reception from the audience. Renewed for a second season, the new episodes have already been filmed on the outskirts of Paris.
