News & Interviews for The Break: Season 1
We start searching for our next fix like that poor addict who sells her body to men with fermented shark-breath. Enter The Break, a bleak Belgian series that makes Hercule Poirot resemble Mr. Rogers.
Almost every quip is sharp, finely-tuned, and feels like it's coming from a network that isn't beholden to advertisers. This is a show that knows it has a long leash and gleefully takes advantage of it.
Powerful, plausible and anxious to poke around in small-town attitudes and prejudices in Belgium -- thereby standing in for all of Europe away from the capital cities -- the eight-part series is gripping, finely crafted, modern noir storytelling.
