TV show description:      
An action crime drama, this series taps into a unit mandated by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate cross-border crimes, ultimately bringing global criminals to justice. Set in the world’s most exotic locales, an elite team of eager cops work to solve notorious international crimes.

Through globalization, many countries have been opened and barriers removed to ensure easy trade, travel and cultural diversity. However, this openness has given opportunities to criminals looking to exploit the system and ultimately threaten our global safety. As Europe has become a “safe house” for criminals eluding law enforcers, a special kind of law enforcement team is needed to handle specific ongoing crimes on a global level.

This show follows one such team, made up of five international cops, headed by Captain Louis Daniel (Marc Lavoine). The team — comprised of individuals who have little in common – must learn to live and work under the most dangerous and potentially deadly conditions. Housed in an unused storage section underneath the ICC, this mismatched team faces bureaucratic, jurisdictional and cultural obstacles while traversing continents in pursuit of justice.

Carl Hickman (William Fichtner) is a wounded New York cop who was pulled from the edge by a group of unlikely saviors. Michel Dorn (Donald Sutherland) is an inspector in the International Criminal Court.

Others on the team are Europol sergeant Eva Vittoria (Gabriella Pession), French detective and criminal analyst Anne-Marie San (Moon Dailly), Irish detective Tommy McConnel (Richard Flood) and Berlin police officer Sebastian Berger (Tom Wlaschiha).

    Please do not cancel this show. It is one of the few scripted dramas worth watching. Intelligent writing like The Bridge , Justified, Longmire and Luther. Maybe it should not be on NBC since they seem to be going the route of their “sister” network E and think everyone wants to watch the Kardashians on Sunday night. Maybe FX or A & E should pick it up since NBC doesn’t produce it.

    This is a smart new show for people who think. The characters great & can only get better with time. NBC has something here, lets hope they know it!

    Crossing Lines is one of the best crime dramas ever to grace my television screen. How can NBC go wrong with Donald Sutherland and William Fitchner among a talented cast of unknowns? The story line is intriguing, smart, and thought-provoking. Of course, this is not a show for the majority of viewers who crave junk like reality TV and Honey Boo Boo, but give us intelligent viewers at least this chance at truly worthwhile television. Renew, renew, renew!!!!

    Don’t cancel it. The characters have only just begun to develop into people we care about. Give it a chance. I l ike the geography of the show; not nailed down in one dreary violent US city. It …. ABROAD !

    Crossing Lines is one of the best programs on TV today. We are just beginning to explore the depth of the characters, which adds so much to the show. NBC has been falling behind on good shows in the past few years and it would be such a shame to cancel this one.

    Great show! Nothing is resolved, too many open stories. Complex characters, love the European settings. The show must go on!

  12. Carol Kellogg says

    If NBC were smart they would renew “Crossing Lines” . The program is smart, , well acted and excellent drama. But they would most likely cancelled it for a “dumb” quiz program or a “stupid” reality show. So sad, they care nothing for the people that watch it.

    Crossing Lines is one of the most intelligent as well as suspenseful programs.
    The variety of characters & their individual talents is absorbing.
    I love Donald Sutherland. Please do not cancel this program.
