Green Cops (2018)

6 x 52m | English | Frederic Cristea

All around the world, specialised units of commandos and rangers are fighting the enemies of the environment. Their mission is to break up gangs, often genuine mafias with henchmen, who shamelessly and illegally exploit the planet’s resources. From toxic waste dumping in Italy to illegal fishing in Indonesia, the stories of these units is the story of protecting our environment. Commissioned for Planète, this action-packed series follows team members both in their daily lives and on the field.
