Marseille Trailer: Netflix’s New Political Drama Is Totally Different From House of Cards Insofar As It Is French


Gérard Depardieu is starring in Marseille, Netflix's first foray into French-language programming. The eight-episode effort focuses on Depardieu as Marseille's mayor —  that is, until he meets a political challenger who is the upstart he had picked as his heir (Benoît Magimel). Judging from the series's first trailer, which is replete with English subtitles for all of you monolinguists out there, Marseille is strong with the House of Cards vibes, because political angst is a universal language. Marseille drops May 5.
