We follow the character of Elena Federova, “a recently captured international arms dealer and criminal mastermind who, even in captivity, orchestrates a number of coordinated bank robberies.” Val Turner, an FBI agent, will stop at nothing to foil her plan.
“Tokyo Vice” – current 2022
Fans of the eponymous novel will be delighted. Indeed, Jake Adelstein’s work will be adapted into a series (broadcast on HBO and Canal+) during 2022. The story focuses on the daring adventures of young reporter Jake Adelstein, who officiates as a reporter in Tokyo, in the largest newspaper in the country. At the same time, he collaborates with the local police to help them investigate and hunt down outlaws, as well as with… the local mafia. A particularly complicated situation.

as a Bonus: the French mini-series “A so long night”
Broadcast in preview on Salto last December, the series “A so long night” has already started its broadcast on TF1. If the scenario is not unknown to you, it is normal: it is the French adaptation of the British series “Criminal Justice” by Peter Moffat, broadcast across the Channel between 2008 and 2009. In France, it is on Canal+ in 2010, then on France 4 in 2014, that it has already been shown. It is now the turn of TF1 to offer its version. The story is simple: Sami, a 19-year-old student, borrows his father’s taxi one evening to leave for a party. That night, he meets Gloria, a young woman he falls in love with, and goes on alcohol, drugs, and sex. Sami wakes up in the early morning and is horrified to discover Gloria’s mutilated body beside him. But what happened?
