After the TV movie “For the honor of a son”, which caused a lot of talk a few weeks ago, Stéphane Bern will soon be back on France 3 with “Bellefond”, a new police TV movie which will be broadcast on October 18.
After his first remarkable steps in comedy thanks to Meurtres en Lorraine and the TV movie Pour l’honneur d’un fils , recently broadcast on France 3, Stéphane Bern will soon be making a comeback in a fiction with Bellefond , a new police unit which will be offered next October 18 on La Trois.
This time he will play Antoine Bellefond, a prosecutor who does not spare the criminals he meets on his way until one of them, innocent, commits suicide in full court. Totally shocked by this event, Bellefond decided to put his career on hold. But his niece, whom he hasn’t seen in years, calls for help when his father, his brother-in-law, has been arrested for murder and refuses to defend himself when she is convinced of his innocence.
Bellefond, also a professor of criminal law, returns to his native village, accompanied by three of his best students to elucidate this mystery, reconnect with his past and reconcile with his family.
In this new detective television film set against a backdrop of family drama, Stéphane Bern will be accompanied by actress Alexandra Vandernoot ( Here it all begins ) who plays the role of Constance Ajard, Bellefond’s sister. But also the actress Anne Caillon ( Tomorrow belongs to us ) who embodies the character of Audrey Passereau and Mélanie Robert ( Un si grand soleil ) in the role of Noémie Ajard, the hero’s niece.
