Based on the bestselling mystery novels by Massimo Carlotto, The Alligator (RAI Com) follows the exploits of Marco Buratti (Matteo Martari), a former blues singer known as… you guessed it, the Alligator. Set in northeastern Italy and surrounding environs, the series begins with Marco’s release from prison after serving seven years for, as we learn in a series of flashbacks, a crime he didn’t commit. Once back on the outside, Marco decides to use his particular set of skills and knowledge gleaned from his years behind bars to bring real criminals to justice, working both sides of the law as an unofficial private eye along with his friends, the former underworld heavy Beniamino Rossini and infotech specialist Max the Memory. But always at the center of Marco’s world are the twin pillars of his existence: his love of calvados brandy and his passion for the blues.
