TVA Films, a DVD/Blu-Ray distributor, announced that the first season of Le gentleman will come out on DVD on April 20.
For those who were too busy to watch hockey on Thursday nights, Le gentleman is a crime thriller that was aired on TVA, a TV network, during fall 2009.
The show introduces us to Det. Louis Cadieux (David Boutin), a young cop who is an expert in infiltration. On one day, his girlfriend (Marianne Farley) is murdered. While he's leading an investigation of his own, Louis discovers that his girlfriend used to be a deluxe escort. In order to find the killer, he'll infiltrate the milieu of deluxe prostitution. Besides, to make things worse, Louis's partner, Richard Beauvais (Michel Barrette), believes that a serial killer is at large after the discovery of a dead male escort (Charles Bender) in an expensive apartment of Montreal. Are Louis's personal research and Richard's investigation linked together?
Furthermore, the show also star Lise Dion, Marie-Chantal Perron, Guy Thauvette, Éléonore Lamothe, Hugo St-Onge-Paquin, Angèle Coutu, Frédéric Pierre, Steve Laplante and Marie-Hélène Thibault.
Finally, TVA announced on the show's Facebook fan page that it renewed Le gentleman for a second season. The production of Le gentleman will be underway from summer to fall 2010. Afterwards, the second season will be broadcasted on TVA in 2011.
