Netflix's Newest Drama Looks Like A French House Of Cards

With Gérard Depardieu as the Gallic Frank Underwood

Love House of Cards (of course you do), and don't mind subtitles? Well Netflix has a show for you. The streaming service released the first trailer for its newest foreign-language drama, Marseille, and it promises plenty of political drama—just with more exotic accents.

Gérard Depardieu stars as Robert Taro, who has been mayor of Marseille for two decades. His last political move will be building a massive casino in the historic marina, and he's already hand-picked his successor, Lucas Barrès (Benoît Magimel). But it turns out his former protégé, plus the wealthy leaders of the city, are willing to do anything to get in Taro's way in a heated election battle.

Marseille premieres on Netflix on May 5. If the trailer is any indication, it'll be just as cliffhanger-heavy as House of Cards—which means you'll be done watching every episode by May 6.
