LOS ANGELES, April 7 (UPI) -- Esquire says it has ordered a second season of Spotless, starring Marc-André Grondin, Denis Ménochet, Miranda Raison and Brendan Coyle.

The London-set, small-screen drama is the cable network's first original scripted series.

"Esquire Network proudly broke the genre barriers offering a series that combined elements of danger and drama with a sharp satirical edge," Matt Hanna, the network's executive vice president of original programming, said in a statement Wednesday. "We are thrilled to once again partner with TANDEM Productions and look forward to the wild ride of Season 2 as we continue to gain momentum as a network and reach new heights."

The show tells the story of a "troubled man, Jean Bastiere, whose life was turned upside-down when he was reunited with his outlaw brother, Martin," a synopsis said. "Forced to confront their dark past, marked by a traumatic and defining childhood event, the brothers quickly found themselves entangled in organized crime led by mob boss Nelson Clay. Jean's crime scene-cleaning business was jeopardized alongside his family's future as drugs, death, corruption and violence took over. His seemingly happy marriage to Julie was tested when he tried juggling his financial issues with an ongoing affair."
