The Series Philosopher

Philosophising about the 'S'-word: Watch… and learn


the-series-philosopher-spotlessSpotless is a Franco – British television series co-created by Ed McCardie and Corinne Marrinan that premiered in France on Canal+ on March 16, 2015, produced by Tandem Communications (StudioCanal) in association with Rosetta Media. The series was renewed for a second season by the Esquire Network.


In London, Jean Bastière has been leading a quiet family life with his wife and two children for fifteen years. Perfectly integrated, he manages a crime scene cleaning business.

The balance of the harmonious existence is disrupted, however, when the brother, Martin, whom he has not seen for years, reappears. With this bulky brother, the secrets and wounds of Jean’s past resurface. Faced with old demons he had chosen to bury, Jean will also face other problems. When Martin arrives with the body of a woman hidden in his van, neither one suspects a year with serious consequences is about to start.
