“Crossing Lines” is NBC’s new action-packed global crime drama. The series taps into a unit mandated by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate cross-border crimes and ultimately bring global criminals to justice. “Crossing Lines” is set in the world’s most exotic locales, while the elite team of eager cops work to solve the most notorious international crimes.

The series stars William Fichtner (“Prison Break”) as Carl Hickman, a wounded New York cop, pulled from the edge by a group of unlikely saviors, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Donald Sutherland (“The Hunger Games”) as Michel Dorn, an Inspector in the International Criminal court, and Marc Lavoine (“The Good Thief”) as Louis Daniel, the head of an elite cross border police unit who hunts down the world’s most brutal criminals. Also starring in the series are Gabriella Pession (“Wilfred”) as Europol Sergeant Eva Vittoria, Moon Dailly (“Black Heaven”) as French detective and criminal analyst Anne-Marie San, Richard Flood (“Titanic-Blood and Steel”) as Irish detective Tommy McConnel, and Tom Wlaschiha (“Game of Thrones”) as Berlin police officer Sebastian Berger.

Through globalization, many countries have been opened and barriers removed to ensure easy trade, travel and cultural diversity. However, this openness has given opportunities to criminals looking to exploit the system and ultimately threaten our global safety. As Europe has become a “safe house” for criminals eluding law enforcers, a special kind of law enforcement team is needed to handle specific ongoing crimes on a global level. “Crossing Lines” is the story of one such team, made up of five international cops, headed by Captain Daniel. The team – comprised of individuals who have little in common -- must learn to live and work under the most dangerous and potentially deadly conditions. Housed in an unused storage section underneath the ICC, this mismatched team faces bureaucratic, jurisdictional and cultural obstacles while traversing continents in pursuit of justice.

“Crossing Lines” is produced by Tandem Communications in association with Bernero Productions in coproduction with TF1 Production and in association with Sony Pictures Television Networks. Edward Allen Bernero (“Criminal Minds”), Rola Bauer (“The Pillars of the Earth”), Jonas Bauer (“The Company”) and Tim Halkin (“Labyrinth”) serve as executive producers.
