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).

    This show is less a who done it than a how do we stop who done it. It is crisp and smart and doesn’t waste time yet remains complex and intriguing. The characters are strong and fascinating, and having a series set in Europe is extra fun. And now they leave us with not one but three cliffhangers — they have to bring it back!

    Constantly leaves me hooked and on the edge of my seat. The entire cast and crew are turning out magnificent episodes every week. This show should run for several seasons. Stop giving us 10 episodes and canceling. We need 22-24 episodes a year for shows like this.

    This show surpassed all of my expectations. I would not be surprised at all if NBC dropped it. I only hope another network will pick it up! Excellent show with numerous plots, action and drama.

    I enjoy this show very much. I really enjoy that there are people from different countries, working together to solve different crimes. The character development has been so good as we learn more about each person’s backgrounds, secrets and vulnerabilities. They’ve left so many story lines open. Please renew this show so we can see what happens to these characters we’ve come to care about.
