Friday, April 30th, 2010

Season 2 of “MPU-Missing Persons Unit’ (original Belgian title = “Vermist”) , the EYEWORKS police series about five members of the Missings Persons Task Force investigating mysterious disappearances will launch in May in French-speaking Belgium.

The Belgian pay TV channel BE TV (http://www.betv.be ) broadcast already the best American series (“How I met your mother”, “Desperate Housewives”, “The Mentalist” , “Flashforward”, “Nip/Tuck”, “Damages”,…) and will broadcast “MPU” every Friday in prime-time.

“MPU” is the first Belgian police series EVER broadcast on BE TV. Moreover, the channel decided to buy directly the movie (1 x 90′) , SEASON 1 (9 x 50′) and also SEASON 2 (10 X 50′). The French title of the series is “URGENCE DISPARITIONS”.

Superb cast, well written scripts as well as well written characters, and a great direction : “MPU-Missing Persons Unit’ is as good as an American movie/series, but with an European touch !
