For the very first time, the country’s two public broadcasters La Une (RTBF) and Eén (VRT) are coming together to work on a fiction project recounting one of the darkest episodes in Belgian history. Based on real events, 1985 takes the audience back to the socially tumultuous 1980s, a time when the Brabant Killers sowed terror.

For the record, the Brabant Killers were responsible for a series of murderous robberies carried out between 1982 and 1985 which resulted in 28 deaths and innumerable victims. The mystery surrounding the killers’ identity has transformed the case into one of the country’s biggest judicial conundrums, encouraging all manner of wild speculation. The subject has already been explored in fiction form in recent times – and in both languages - via François Troukens and Jean-François Hensgens’ highly successful Above the Law [+lee también:

The series follows in the footsteps of three friends: Marc, Franky and his sister Vicky. Bursting with enthusiasm and ambition, the first two leave their rural village for Brussels in order to begin a career in the gendarmerie. But they unexpectedly find themselves joining a squad in crisis, at a time when the country is afflicted by a series of violent robberies. Vicky is studying law at VUB, which is situated opposite the gendarmerie’s headquarters. Her rebellious nature and progressive ideals clash with all that Franky and Marc hold dear. 1985 speaks of these three youngsters’ loss of innocence, but it also relates a breakdown of trust: that felt by the general populace towards the police and the world of politics, whose repercussions can still be felt today.

The three lead roles are played by the brilliant young Flemish actor Tijmen Govaerts (Tench [+lee también:
