About Crossing Lines
Crossing Lines is a unique, global action/crime series that taps into the charter of the International Criminal Court (ICC), to mandate a special crime unit functioning as a European-based FBI, to investigate serialized crimes that cross over European borders and to hunt down and bring criminals to justice.
Housed in an unused storage section underneath the ICC, this mismatched team faces bureaucratic, jurisdictional and cultural obstacles while traversing continents in pursuit of justice.
Through globalization, many borders were opened and barriers to easy trade, travel and cultural diversity removed. All good things. However, opportunity for criminals to exploit the system has become a threat to our global safety. Europe, for example, has become a “safe house”. Criminals elude law enforcers by hiding out in safe countries, or changing trafficking routes from one nation to another when the trails get hot. Action must occur at an international level if this worldwide threat is truly to be beaten. A special kind of law enforcement team is needed, one that can handle specific, ongoing crimes on a global level.
Crossing Lines is a story about learning to live and work under the most dangerous, potentially deadly conditions, with people you have almost nothing in common with. The series traverses the world’s most exotic settings filled with suspense, danger and action in the quest for a safer world. It is about the power of friendship, and belief in one another.
