A second season of new Canal+ drama Spotless is in development ahead of the launch of season one tonight.
The ten-part series, filmed in London, tells the story of Jean, whose quiet life is shattered by the sudden arrival of his brother Martin, who leads them into the world of organised crime. Against the backdrop of Jean’s company specialising in cleaning crime scenes, they must fight to regain control of their lives and their business amid gangsters, corruption and drugs.
Producer Tandem Communications is now developing the second season, as part of its efforts to focus on series development and production after parent company StudioCanal announced it would now handle sales for all of Tandem’s output.
Tandem’s former sales team will now operate under the StudioCanal banner, reporting to Rodolphe Buet, president of international marketing and distribution.
Meanwhile, Tandem’s production team will devote their time to developing, financing and producing primetime programmes for the international market.
The move comes three years after StudioCanal took a majority stake in Tandem, which has enabled the latter to move into the one-hour drama arena, beginning with pan-European crime procedural Crossing Lines.
Production has just begun on its third season, which stars Goran Visnjic, Elizabeth Mitchell, and Donald Sutherland.
The new season is executive produced by Frank Spotnitz and Rola Bauer.
