“TAINTED” is a dark and gripping Brazilian crime thriller with a terrible family betrayal at its heart which
casts everything in doubt.
When André is released from prison, life is pretty bleak. He has been imprisoned three years for
kidnapping a child and while the sentence may be over, his record is forever TAINTED. What’s more, it
becomes apparent André is in fact innocent and the man behind the crime is none other than his very
own father.
Having used terminal cancer as a bargaining plea, André’s father blackmailed him into taking
responsibility for the kidnapping so that he can live out his final months as a free man. Despite promising
to leave a confession of his guilt, he dies without writing a word and André is condemned to being labeled
guilty indefinitely.
Believing him to be a criminal, upon release he is cruelly rejected by his family and everyone he held dear
in his former life. Left with no other options, André adopts a new career that requires the investigative
skills he had previously acquired as a policeman, without the clean record: bounty hunting.
“TAINTED” is nightmarish and addictive, following André’s messy professional pursuits on the mean
streets of Rio de Janiero and the even more chaotic home life he is desperately trying to untangle.
Starring a multi-award winning cast, “TAINTED” is a high quality and deeply seductive Brazilian

Tony’s Revenge
The award-winning French crime thriller “TONY’S REVENGE” is set in 2010 when Tony Roucas, aka Crazy
Tony is serving a long-term prison sentence. He and his cellmate, a young delinquent named Kenz, make
a break for it. Helped by Kenz’s friends, they make a successful getaway.
Outside the prison walls, they have absolutely nothing in common: the smash-and-grab world of hoodie
wearing estate gangsis a far cry away from the starch shirt, cufflink mobsters of the 50’s and 60’s. However,
penniless and in hiding, Tony and Kenz spark an unlikely friendship as they undertake a series of missions
together with both dramatic and comedic consequences.
With flashbacks taking us from the 1950’s right up to the 1980’s, the series paints a vivid picture of the
history of French organized crime.

Professor T: Season 3
Fans of “Monk” and “House” will enjoy watching the eccentrically gifted professor, Professor T*, unravel
complex criminal puzzles for the police with his brilliant mind. The show’s namesake character is an
esteemed criminologist at Antwerp University. He inspires scores of students with his punchy teaching
techniques. However, outside the lecture hall, he is haunted by a plethora of neuroses that hold him back
from getting close to people – he quite literally protects himself from the outside world in a shroud of
anti-bacterial spray and latex gloves. Despite this, the Antwerp Homicide Department relies on him and
his team for expert advice.

Season 3 picks up where the heart-breaking ending to series 2 takes the world’s most germophobic man
to his own personal hell: a filthy men’s prison, where the control over his routine and spotless
surroundings he depends upon are taken from him. After killing the crooked chief-inspector Serge
Lauwers to protect Christine, Jasper Teerlinck (Professor T) is immediately incarcerated. For the
mysophobic and autistic professor, he could not be thrown into a more challenging situation. However,
against all odds he finds a way to embrace his new life and thrive: when a fellow prisoner claims to be
wrongly accused of murder, Professor T dusts off his gloves and sets to proving his innocence. They say
old habits die hard...
His reputation may have been saved within prison and guaranteed him a steady stream of wrongly accused
defendants to save, but on the outside the Antwerp police department strongly sense his absence. Despite
new talent on the team, they desperately lack his interfering genius to solve the constant supply of
complicated crimes that come their way.
