Netflix to Air French Crime Drama Engrenages


Netflix has acquired a non-exclusive right to air the French crime drama Engrenages. Three 10-episode seasons of the series aired on Canal Plus in 2005, 2008, and 2010; a fourth season is expected to debut later this year. The Netflix deal includes all four seasons (to date); a fifth and sixth season have been ordered by the French network.

In English-speaking countries, the series is marketed as Spiral … though the French translation of the title is "gears". Netflix will air the series in French with English subtitles.

Engrenages follows the actions of a police department headed by a female captain. It seems to us that each season covers a single case, though we could be wrong about that.

An American version of the series is in development by Sam Mendes.

Below is a promotional video prepared by the international distributor of the series.
