Dealer is a French television show that premiered on Netflix in 2021. The show revolves around two teenagers who get caught up in the drug trade world accidentally. The lead characters, small-time dealers, a teenager named Franck, played by Abdramane Diakite and his friend Serge, played by Mohamed Boudouh, are constantly looking for ways to make money. However, their efforts to make a quick buck lead them to a lot of problems.

The premise of the show is simple, at least in the beginning. The boys begin to sell a new drug they have come across, hoping to make money to achieve their individual goals. Franck wants to buy a new camera while Serge hopes to buy a small farm near their village. Their business grows quickly, and they are soon making more money than they could have anticipated.

The story is set in a suburban town outside of Paris. The town is a hub for the drug trade, with different gangs fighting for dominance in the area. The two boys become embroiled in the competition between the gangs as they become more and more successful as dealers themselves. In this world, the two friends learn that nothing comes easy and that they must always be ready for danger.

The show portrays the lives of youth in poor communities who are forced to turn towards the drug trade for money. It highlights the violence, corruption, and hopelessness associated with such communities when there is no other way to earn a living. The show also explores the relationships between the two friends, their families, and the community they live in.

Amidst the drug trade drama, the show also tackles issues such as poverty, racial discrimination, and police brutality that are prevalent in French society. It highlights the challenges that youths of certain backgrounds face in terms of access to education and job opportunities. The show's ability to weave these issues into the storyline, rather than resorting to preachy dialogues, is a breath of fresh air.

One of the standout elements of Dealer is its cinematography. The show's creators make excellent use of their location, bringing the audience into this world of drug trafficking with a sort of documentary-style realism that makes each episode engaging. Camera techniques are used to emphasize the tension and danger that the characters face.

The show's characters are another strong suit, with each of the actors handling their respective roles with skill. Jean Toussaint Bernard plays the role of a police officer who is investigating the gang wars in the suburb, and in a way, his character is the main antagonist of the show as he tracks down Franck and Serge.

The show's dialogue is in French, adding an extra layer of authenticity to the characters and situations. However, one doesn't need to understand the language to appreciate the show's performances and storytelling.

Dealer is a well-crafted show that has kept viewers on the edge of their seats since its release. It is a great example of how a drama series can tackle serious issues that affect our world today while providing an entertaining story. The show ends on a cliffhanger, hinting at a second season, which would be an exciting prospect for all those hooked to the show. Overall, Dealer is a must-watch for those who enjoy gritty, realistic dramas.

Dealer is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (10 episodes). The series first aired on March 10, 2021.
