Cape Town - The third season of the hit international crime drama Crossing Lines – with new stars Goran Visnjic and Elizabeth Mitchell – premieres in South Africa for the first time on the Sony Channel (DStv Channel 127) on Tuesday, September 15 at 20h55.
The two, who have impressive TV pedigrees with Visnjic finding fame in ER and Extant and Mitchell in Lost, join Donald Sutherland as series leads and will fill the void left by original cast member William Fichtner.
Crossing Lines taps into the charter of the International Criminal Court (ICC), to mandate a special crime unit, creating an organisation functioning as a European FBI, to investigate serialised crimes that cross over European borders and to hunt down criminals and bring them to justice.
This season promises to be its most ambitious yet, with an emphasis on contemporary cross-border crime, gut-wrenching character drama and a reunited team of underdogs struggling to re-establish their battered identity.
This season the unit confronts humanity on its worst days and its worst behaviour, facing murder, corruption, vigilante justice, the risk of a blood-borne epidemic and even a radioactive catastrophe at the very heart of Europe. The team must work together, solving crimes while keeping their own private desires and demons under control.
Visnjic talks about his role as Italian inspector and kidnapping expert, Marco Constante: “Viewers will see why Constante chose to enter the police academy and what led him to become a specialised expert in kidnapping and how his background played a vital role in his chosen career path. It’s a wonderful role – there’s plenty of physical action as well as the emotional and personal investment brought not only by myself but also the individual characters in Crossing Lines. There are also the location shoots around Europe including Prague and my home country of Croatia.”
