Based on the ground-breaking book : “Espionnes” by Dalila Kerchouche, published by Flammarion
Adaptation : Dalila Kerchouche & Martine Moriconi
Pitch : In France, a dozen would-be terrorist attacks have been prevented since the start of the year. Of the 13,000 agents working in the various French intelligence services, some 4,000 are women. These shadowy agents look like the woman next door or who you see at the bakery or parents’ meeting.
This series immerses us in the daily lives of five agents – Valérie, Camillia, Daphnée, Virginie, and Anne – who, as part of the inter-services cell CIRCE, must join forces against a terrorism plot on French soil, and at the same time deal with their complex personal lives. The secrecy surrounding their mission threatens to shatter this delicate balance at any moment.
