From the creators of Shameless and CSI comes the new Anglo/Franco drama Spotless, which debuts in the US on the Esquire Network this fall.
French actors Marc-André Grondin (Goon) and Denis Ménochet (Inglourious Basterds), and British actors Miranda Raison (MI-5) and Brendan Coyle (Downton Abbey), star in Spotless — Esquire Network’s first-ever scripted drama.
Filled with relentless twists, provocative stories, and pervasive wit, the dark-humored and “genre-bending” Spotless follows two estranged brothers who are forced to reconnect after their lives were torn apart by a terrible childhood secret. Witnessing a double murder, they jeopardize Jean’s successful crime scene cleaning business (and their lives) by inadvertently becoming entangled in the deadly dynamics of organized crime.
The already-troubled life of young family man Jean Bastiere (Grondin) is turned upside down when his crook of a brother, Martin (Ménochet), crash lands into his world in London. On the surface Jean has everything, including a gorgeous wife (Raison), two doting children, and a thriving crime scene cleaning business. However, his morals are compromised when his estranged brother’s presence begins to upend his seemingly stable life.
Affected by the same childhood tragedy as his polar-opposite brother, Martin drifted into a life of crime, alcohol abuse, drugs, and loose women. Now, in yearning for a better life, he is forced to confront dark sins of the past and real dangers of the present.
The Bastiere brothers’ lives collide when Jean stumbles across what appears to be a murder that Martin is trying to cover up. The former must now put his crime scene cleaning skills to the test by cleaning up the latter’s mess.
As the series progresses, Jean and his skills unwittingly catch the attention of mob boss Nelson Clay (Coyle), who enlists the brothers, against their will, into his crime business. Constantly forced down a dangerous and blood-soaked path, Jean must protect his family’s future by jeopardizing his own.
