Netflix is the most popular streaming service in the world and has already topped 200 million subscribers. The streaming giant continues to bring mind-boggling content from around the world. There are a lot of foreign-language shows on Netflix as the company continues to expand its reach across the globe. TV series like ‘Narcos’, ‘Money Heist’, ‘Dark’, ‘Fauda’, ‘Dark Desire’, ‘The King: Eternal Monarch’ and more have been some of the best non-English shows in recent years and gained a lot of popularity in the US.
The streaming service is ready to serve more foreign-language content with the news series ‘Dealer’. The upcoming French thriller revolves around a young music director, who is caught up in a gang war between two groups. Netflix had promised, French creations will be in the spotlight this year on its platform.

‘Dealer’ is now in the elite list of a handful of shows that have been originally produced by Netflix in the French language. The first French-language original production for Netflix was ‘Marseille’ in 2015, which turned out to be a massive hit for the streamer. The success of ‘Marseille’ prompted the platform to churn out more shows like ‘Marianne’, ‘La Revolution’ and most recently, ‘Lupin’. The streaming giant would be hoping for ‘Dealer’ to hit the bull's eye and give them another reason to work on original shows in different languages.
The series will be available for streaming exclusively on Netflix on March 10.
The show tells the story of a music producer who gets caught in a gang war between two groups. The official synopsis reads: “Franck, a music video director, infiltrates a rough neighborhood in the South of France to film Tony, a charismatic but unpredictable drug gang leader wanting to break into the rap music scene. Using his camera to reveal the hidden, true face of drug dealing, Franck will get caught in a bloody gang war.”
One of the prominent names in the French entertainment industry, Sebastien Houbani will be playing the role of Franck in the upcoming crime-thriller. The actor started his professional acting career in 1998 with ‘Plus belle la vie'. However, he did not have any formal training in acting prior to that. So, in 2005, he enrolled himself for acting lessons.
In 2012, he starred in the short film 'La Tête froid' by Nicolas Mesdom, an interpretation which won him a prize at the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival and that of the best actor in a short film at the Cabourg Festival. ‘Stockholm’, ‘Rascal’, ‘Paper Flags’, and ‘All that Divides Us’ are some of the other projects he has worked in.
Azougli started his career with the award-winning movie ‘Sheherazade’ and gained prominence with his role in the drama-thriller. Released in 2018, the movie was a huge success for him and was nominated at the Cannes Film Festival for the Golden Camera award. The movie also won three awards at the Cesar Awards, including the best first film. Azougi will portray the character of Steve in ‘Dealer’.
Created by Netflix, the series is one more addition to its French-language line-up. After the success of ‘Lupin’, the streaming giant will be hoping to get another hit in the form of ‘Dealer’.
