Once a detective, always a detective.

From Harry & Jack Williams comes Baptiste; a thrilling new drama starring Tchéky Karyo as the insightful but stubborn investigator Julien Baptiste.

When Julien and his wife move to Amsterdam, the Chief of Police (an old girlfriend) seeks out his questioning and persistent approach to crime solving. Baptiste is rapidly embroiled in a case that peels back the layers of atrocity in the trade of sex, drugs and people themselves. For Julien Baptiste the beautiful streets, canals and houses of Amsterdam hide dark secrets.
