A documentary miniseries on two Quebec drug traffickers
Isabelle Lagacé and Mélina Roberge were arrested in Sydney in August 2016.
In addition to having inspired a film, the story Isabelle Lagacé and Mélina Roberge, two Quebecers implicated and convicted in one of the largest cocaine seizures in Australian history, will be told in a documentary miniseries. Cocaine, Jail & likes: the real story of Isabelle will be available from December on Crave.
In 2016, while on a cruise around the world, the two young women became entangled in a widely publicized cocaine trafficking case. They had been arrested in Sydney, Australia.
After spending several years behind bars on the other side of the planet and returning home, Isabelle Lagacé gave herself exclusively in front of the camera for this documentary miniseries.
During the three 60-minute episodes, she recounts her experience, exposing without taboos her version of the facts and what she has experienced. The young woman tells in particular how she was able to serve as a “mule” for an international drug trafficking network.
“In the media around the world, Isabelle has been labeled as a major drug trafficker. After serving her sentence, she returned to Canada completely transformed by this experience and she chose to reveal her version of her story worthy of a fiction”, underlines the vice-president, development of content, programming and information at Bell Media , Suzane Landry.
This miniseries directed by Sébastien Trahan is produced by URBANIA and Connect 3 Media in collaboration with Bell Media.
Connect 3 Media is also behind; origin of the Canadian-Mexican production Sugar, a film inspired by the story of Isabelle Lagacé and Mélina Roberge, which should be released later this year.
