Braquo is a French crime drama television series created by Olivier Marchal and produced by Capa Drama with the participation of Canal+ in association with Marathon Group, Be-Films and RTBF. It was first broadcast in France from October 12 to November 2, 2009. The first season established a record of audience for an original production of the channel, and has surpassed that of many U.S. productions broadcast by the network. The second season started on Canal+ on November 21, 2011. A third and final season was announced by main actor Jean-Hugues Anglade in 2011. The series is available from Hulu as of September, 2013.

The name of the series comes from the French word braquage, meaning armed robberies, particularly of banks.

Plot[edit]

The protagonists are four police agents in the Hauts-de-Seine area of Paris: Eddy Caplan (Jean-Hugues Anglade), Walter Morlighem (Joseph Malerba), Théo Vachewski (Nicolas Duvauchelle) and Roxanne Delgado (Karole Rocher). Their colleague Max Rossi (Olivier Rabourdin) is wrongly accused of criminal misconduct, and commits suicide. His guilt is then presumed, disrupting the lives of the other four. The four then decide to "cross the gray line": do whatever is necessary, even breaking the law, to clear Max's name. In crossing the grey line, however, they fall under the close scrutiny of Vogel, of the police internal affairs bureau, a sworn enemy to Caplan.
