TV series show: Disney+ mini series ‘Oussekine’ looks at France’s real-life George Floyd

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “TV series show: Disney+ mini series ‘Oussekine’ looks at France’s real-life George Floyd” – below is their description.

Our TV critic Dheepthika Laurent looks at a new series from Disney+ that brings police brutality and racism in 1980s France to the small screen. Also, we look at Netflix’s weird, controversial but entertaining docu-fiction about notorious Swedish gangster Clark Olofsson, who gave rise to the term “Stockholm syndrome”. Apple TV+’s “Now and Then” is an addictive Spanglish murder mystery set in opulent Miami. Finally, we take a deep dive into 1970s London with a new show looking at the rise (and fall) of iconic punk group Sex Pistols.
