Banijay Studios Italy, a Banijay company, today announces a new four-part drama, FOSCA – A Tuscan Policewoman (Fosca Innocenti) for Canale 5.
The new series for Mediaset marks the return of Vanessa Incontrada to Canale 5. With filming already underway in Rome, the majority of the shoot will take place in Arezzo, the setting of the show.
Against the stunning landscape of Tuscany, the police drama follows Fosca Innocenti (Vanessa Incontrada), a Deputy Commissioner, who heads up an all-female investigative team. Guided by an infallible instinct at solving intricate cases, Innocenti does have a weak point: her best friend Cosimo (Francesco Arca). Is it really just friendship between them or is there something more? Cosimo’s decision to leave for New York will suddenly call everything into question.
Massimo Del Frate, Head of Drama for Banijay Studios Italy, comments: “Fosca Innocenti boasts strong and engaging storytelling that highlights the characters’ personal lives, amidst gripping crimes. With Vanessa Incontrada at the helm, we are proud to bring this ambitious show to Italy, that will have audiences hooked from the-off.”
Directed by Fabrizio Costa, FOSCA – A Tuscan Policewoman (Fosca Innocenti), is produced by Massimo Del Frate for Banijay Studios Italy. The screenplay has been written by Dido Castelli and Graziano Diana.
Banijay Rights will handle international distribution for this series.
