Set in late 18th century France, ‘DeSade’ takes place just weeks before the French Revolution, dealing primarily with the sexual fetishes of The Marquis Du Fournier which are financed through a mysterious Benefactress; a high ranking Lady of the French Court. They use each other; for the Marquis’ desire for upward -mobility belies her personal agenda for rising up in the French Aristocracy. The series is narrated through The Marquis’ daily writings in his journal. Here we will meet his main antagonist Father Felipe Alberti, a liaison from the Vatican, who relentlessly pursues The Marquis in an attempt to expose his sexual deviance and “return him” to the arms of the Catholic Church. But lies and secrets abound, fetishes are uncovered, and treachery lurks around every corner as each pursues their own endgame, and the true nature of mankind’s darkness is revealed.
