Walter Presents/All4 confirm transmission date for Fenix

As ever there’s a lot of stuff coming up under the Walter Presents banner.

The next series off the block is Dutch thriller, Fenix.

Fenix expands that grey area between police and criminals, their necessary evils, through an ambitious TV mini-series intertwining the stories of several characters: an ambitious Dutch detective aiming to take down a criminal network at any cost; his Belgian colleague with ambiguous motives; a student forced to head the gangster family he always wanted to stay clear of; his hot-headed right-hand man.

All these worlds are clashing with many twist and turns, and well-developed characters, and Korver makes sure he makes the experience as stylish and moody as possible: the cryptic opening scene, virtually dialogue-free, is the perfect introduction to a shadowy and fascinating world.
