Jo, a series produced by Atlantique Productions (Lagardère Entertainment), debuts Thursday 25 April on TF1.
Jo Saint-Clair (Jean Reno) is the ultimate top cop. Stubborn and relentless, but with a deep streak of humanity, he knows how killers operate and feels the pain of their victims. His team looks up to him as a leader. Each episode in the series opens with a mind-boggling murder committed at one of the most famous sites in Paris. From Notre Dame to the Place de la Concorde and the Eiffel Tower, Jo spotlights the many sides of Paris and its inhabitants.
A series of eight 45-minute episodes (Notre-Dame, Place de la Concorde, Invalides, Pigalle, Place Vendôme, Le Marais, Opéra and Les Catacombes), directed by Charlotte Sieling (Notre-Dame/Pigalle), Kristoffer Nyholm (Place de la Concorde/Le Marais), Stefan Schwartz (Invalides/Place Vendôme) and Sheree Folkson (Opéra/Les Catacombes).
