Canal Plus has given an 10-episode order to one-hour crime drama Spotless. Co-created by Shameless UK producer and writer Ed McCardie and Corinne Marrinan (CSI, Crossing Lines), the series is produced by Studiocanal’s Tandem Communications in association with Rosetta Media for Canal+ Original Programming. The London-set drama is billed as irreverant, sexy and dangerous. It’s the story of a troubled man whose tidy life is turned upside down when his outlaw brother crash lands into his world, and gets both of them involved in the deadly dynamics of organized crime as their dysfunctional family struggles to gain control over life, business and shared destiny. Principal photography is targeted to begin this summer in London. The first two episodes will be directed by Pascal Chaumeil (Heartbreaker) and casting is underway.
McCardie is head writer and Marrinan is writer and co-executive producer. Executive producers include Tandem’s Rola Bauer, Jonas Bauer and Suzanne Berger, who first brought the project to Tandem. Producing for Tandem is Moritz Polter. Spotless is produced by Hugh Warren, most recently producer of the UK drama series, Call The Midwife.
