Expected on April 29 on TF1, the “HPI” series is already available in full on the Salto platform. Audrey Fleurot plays a cleaning lady with an extraordinary IQ who becomes a consultant for the police when she hates cops.
Do not wait until April 29 to fall under the spell of Morgane Alvaro! After The Promise, Gloria, The Replacing, or The School of Life, the Salto streaming platform continues to enrich its offer of series offered in preview with HPI, carried by Audrey Fleurot.
The new crime fiction event of TF1, which combines investigations and comedy, is indeed available as of today in full on Salto, two weeks before its launch on TF1 in the Thursday evening box for the moment occupied by season 8 of Leo Matteï, miners’ brigade.
Created by Nicolas Jean and Alice Chegaray-Breugnot, the duo of screenwriters behind La Mante, as well as by Stéphane Carrié, HPI (for “High intellectual potential”) follows the adventures of Morgane Alvaro, 38 years old, 3 children, 2 ex, 5 credits, 160 IQ and a good dose of insubordination, which sees her destiny as a cleaning lady turned upside down when her extraordinary abilities are spotted by the police who offer her a consultancy position.
Problem: Morgane hates cops. And his collaboration with the very picky Commander Karadec (Mehdi Nebbou), who finds himself obliged by his superior to collaborate with this single mother with a fiery temperament, promises to be the most explosive! Because Morgana has a serious problem with authority, and she’s sure to prove it.
Around the star of Gears and the Bazar de la charité, and Mehdi Nebbou (Joséphine, Baby), Salto subscribers and TF1 viewers will find Bruno Sanches, who is playing more roles at the start of 2021 after Je promises you and The School of Life, but also Marie Denarnaud (Les Adoptés, Soeur Thérèse.com), Bérangère McNeese (La Bouse), Rufus, or even Michèle Moretti in the role of Morgane’s mother.
After the recent announcements of the cancellations of Profiling, Research Section, and Alice Nevers, which stop after 10, 14, and 18 seasons respectively, HPI seems to be starting a real change on the side of TF1’s police series, with a crazy heroine – embodied by a simply excellent Audrey Fleurot – and often very funny dialogues, which breathe a breath of fresh air on the offer of French “procedural” fictions.
Directed by Vincent Jamain and Laurent Tuel, the 8 episodes that make up the first season of HPI are available this Friday April 16 on Salto.
