TV News: JO

Starting on 19 May at 9pm on Fox UK is JO starring Jean Reno, Tom Austen and Orla Brady (and will be in English):

JO is a one-hour close-ended crime series about Joachim “Jo” Saint-Clair, played by Jean Reno (“Leon – The Professional”) a veteran detective in Paris’ elite Criminal Brigade tackling the city’s most challenging murder cases. Each episode will feature one case, while Jo’s personal journey has a series-long arc.

From the Emmy® winning executive producer of Law & Order comes JO, a thrilling new crime drama starring legend of French and Hollywood cinema, Jean Reno.

Jo St-Clair is a veteran detective in Paris’s elite Criminal Brigade, tackling the city’s most challenging murder cases. All the while, his personal life is as challenging and dangerous as the cases he solves.

St-Clair is partnered with rookie detective Bayard, a good looking, college-educated cop whose by-the-book approach stands in marked contrast to St-Clair’s lone-wolf methods.

Supervising them is the tough-minded boss, Commisaire Dormont, who has suffered a long tumultuous history with Saint- Clair.

Brilliant and brutal, St-Clair matches wits with pathological killers to solve a series of shocking murders: a supermodel thrown off the Eiffel Tower; a young heiress brutalised during a sexual romp at the Hôtel de Crillon; a high-end jeweller burned to death on Place Vendôme.
