Major Crimes (French title to be confirmed)

Major Crimes takes television’s favorite squad of detectives — known to viewers from the hit series The Closer (Fr. V.: L.A. Enquêtes prioritaires also on Séries+) — into bold new territory. The series picks up where The Closer leaves off, centering on what it takes to secure an airtight conviction, exploring how the police and prosecutors work together to build a solid case that will result in a suspect confessing, signing a plea agreement or being found guilty in a court of law.

A marketing campaign (on both TV and radio) is also being planned for this summer to announce the arrival of The Closer‘s spinoff, Major Crimes

Common Law (Fr. V.: Wes et Travis)

Common Law is about two cops with a problem – each other. Despite their differences, they are incredible detectives. When things come to a head during their “seven-year itch” as partners, their captain forces them into couples’ therapy to save their “work marriage.” Despite being an odd couple, Travis Marks and Wes Mitchell are incredible at what they love most: enforcing the law.
