Set in a small coastal village in France, this is a quiet thriller of crime and dark secrets. The opening sequence takes place in a house just put out for sale. In it, the discovery of what appears to be the dead family in the house, implicates the former chief-of-police to the plot. The now-retired chief-of-police, having made a lot of enemies in his past career, is recovering from a car crash in which his wife was killed and he himself barely survived.
Created by Hervé Hadmar and Marc Herpoux, who also wrote it with Dominique Montay, Witnesses stars Thierry Lhermitte, Marie Dompnier, Laurent Lucas, Kaz Gorbier, Jan Hammenecker and Catherine Mouchet, and I’m intrigued withg the tagline “Some secrets should stay buried”.
Witnesses premieres on Channel 4 on Wednesday July 22nd at 10pm.
