Disney has released a new trailer for the upcoming French Disney+ Original series, “Oussekine”, which is an ambitious four-part Star Original mini-series, examines the terrible true events of December 5, 1986, that led to the death of a young student, Malik Oussekine. Centred on his family’s fight for justice, the series will explore the enormous impact this high-profile case had on French society.
Check out the trailer below:
This new series stars Sayyid El Alami, Hiyam Abbass, Malek Lamraoui and Tewfik Jallab. It has been created and directed by Antoine Chevrollier (Baron Noir, Le Bureau des Légendes) and co-written by Faïza Guène, Julien Lilti and Cédric Ido. Itinéraire Productions’ Anthony Lancret and Pierre Laugier are producing the series for Disney+.
Antoine Chevrollier said in a statement to Deadline:
“Oussekine wishes to tell the facts and restore them without prejudice. To tell this story 35 years after the event is also to show the story’s timeless themes –the fight for justice, the grieving process, and brotherly bonds in the face of life’s tragedies.”
This new series is one of 60 originals being created within Europe by 2024.
“Oussekine” is coming out on Disney+ in 2022 around the world, and it will also be released on Hulu in the United States and Star+ in Latin America.
