Direction Season 7, 4 Episodes 52’
In 2006, the once successful show faced a 7th season with its lowest ratings and needed a fresh take. I was brought aboard to modernize the series.
I introduced a new format, following the wave of 90 minutes shows being converted in 1 hour shows, in the wake of the hugely successful R.I.S. SCIENTIFIC POLICE that I initiated the previous year for TF1, and cast a new, younger female cop.
This pilot “The Girl of the Air” of the new “series formula” contains spectacular action scenes. With a new actress, a new format and a new creative team at the helm, the show was a major hit and the series was renewed for 3 more seasons.
