The new police drama "Astrid and Raphaëlle" will be broadcast from April 12


The new police drama "Astrid and Raphaëlle" with Sara Mortensen will be broadcast from April 12 on France 2!

In line with Cain, "Astrid and Raphaëlle" is the latest detective series Made in France, directed by Elsa Bennett and Hippolyte Dard. Its 1.5-hour driver will be unveiled Friday, April 12 at 9 pm and will determine the future of the series. Indeed, if the audiences are satisfying despite the fierce competition of the Friday night slot (Koh-Lanta on TF1), the series will be entitled to 5 more episodes of an hour for a total of 6 episodes.

The two main roles of the series are attributed to Lola Dewaere (The killer of the lake) and Sara Mortensen (Plus belle la vie) who will then become teammates to solve a series of investigations within the Police Department of Paris. Thus the duo Astrid (Mortensen) and Raphaëlle (Dewaere) will be born for our greatest pleasure.

It is when the captain Raphaëlle Coste goes down to the judicial archives service in the frame of one of its investigations that she will meet Astrid, employee of the service and autistic Asperger with the extraordinary memory concerning the criminal investigations.

Sara Mortensen will then embody a complex character suffering from the Asperger syndrome, a form of high-level autism too often unknown to the general public. Moreover, the actress was attending in 2014 the Monte-Carlo Television Festival for the series Plus belle la vie, which she was one of the stars with the character of Coralie.

Do not miss the pilot of “Astrid and Raphaëlle”, new French series duet atypical from April 12 on France 2.
