New Season of the lawyers series NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH (60 x 50′) to launch today in PRIME-TIME / Most successful series in Canada !

Monday, September 17th, 2012

The 3rd Season of the lawyers series “Nothing but the truth” (60 x 50’ ) will launch today in PRIME-TIME… “Nothing but the truth” (60 x 50’ ) is the MOST SUCCESSFUL series in French-speaking Canada : an average of 1,2 million viewers (in a market of only 7 million people!) watch it every week !

Crown prosecutors live in a world in which the stakes are naturally high. A world in which sexual assaults, murders and home invasions are part of daily life. It’s a dangerous world, full of immense challenges that are both brutal and complex. But far from offering a negative vision, Toute la vérité introduces us to courageous men and women who have the resources to face those challenges. There’s Brigitte in the trial division, a smart, passionate young prosecutor ; and Marc, the sympathetic boss who helps her fight with passion, energy and talent to win the cases that mean so much to her. On the prosecution team, there’s Maxime at sexual offences, Sylvain in preliminary hearings and Véronique, a prosecutor who handles special cases and has just returned to work after her maternity leave. Also on hand is Dominique, who leads the preliminary hearings team and is referred to – behind her back – as “the Dominatrix”. Brigitte can also count on the support of her boyfriend Samuel. The only trouble is, Samuel’s on the other side. He’s a criminal defence lawyer, working to avoid prison for the same defendants Brigitte is trying to get convicted.

As they work on one case after another, Brigitte, her friends and colleagues show us the ups and downs of the legal life as they do their best to maintain some balance in their hectic personal and professional schedules. Each episode will give us revealing glimpses into the fascinating world of crown prosecutors, and for the first time, television viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at Quebec’s justice system. Toute la vérité is a cutting-edge series, intense and exciting, that shows us human nature in all its excess!
