Initiated in 2011 by Laurent Richard and most popular TV news presenter Elise Lucet, the Underhand Tactics series investigates the “wonderful world” of global corporations. Premiering on main public broadcaster France 2 in summer 2012, it secured a 12% audience share in a slot that usually attracts 5%. Boldly mixing irreverent humor and unquestionnable fact-checking, the series has become the symbol of modern TV investigative journalism in France.
