The Legends Office: the plot
The action takes place within the General Directorate of External Security (DGSE), in the department called: the Legends Office.
This section of the DGSE remotely supervises the “clandestines”, French agents infiltrated in foreign countries, who must identify and get closer to people who could be sources of information.
Paul Lefebvre (code name Malotru) is one of these agents. He conducts his operations “under legend”, that is to say under a false identity since his real name is Guillaume Debailly.
Returning from a 6-year mission in Syria, he does not respect a rule, yet essential: the abandonment of his legend.
This transgression added to the kidnapping of agent “Cyclone” in Algeria will jeopardize the department and its agents, his family, but more worrying still, the security of France.
Note that this Original CANAL + Creation is written and produced by Éric Rochant, director of Mafiosa (Canal +).
We find in the cast, Mathieu Kassovitz in the skin of Malotru, Jean-Pierre Darroussin is Henri Duflot, the Director of the BDL, and Sara Giraudeau plays the clandestine agent “Phenomenon” sent to Iran.
The BDL has 5 seasons on its counter, each of which is made up of 10 episodes. The last 2 episodes of the 5th season were directed by Jacques Audiard (De rouille et d’os, De beating mon coeur est Arrest, Un Prophète …).
Even if Mathieu Kassovitz was very motivated, Eric Rochant the creator has declared that there will be no season 6 for The Office. Rather, he plans a spin-off of the series or a reboot. Probably it will be broadcast on Canal + as well.
If you want to deepen your knowledge of French espionage, then you can watch the documentary Shadow Warriors, directed by Frédéric Schoendoerffer and Jean ‑ Christophe Notin.
