Framed! A Sicilian Murder Mystery (Incastrati) is an Italian series directed by and starring Salvatore Ficarra and Valentino Picone.
Framed! A Sicilian Murder Mystery begins its second season with this seventies tone and with these characters that are far-removed from Hollywood clichés. A different sense of humor, local, but certainly refreshing and charming, very tender.
About the Series
If you haven’t seen it, give it a fair chance because the series has a special touch, very Italian, a very made-for-TV style, and with a great sense of cinematic irony.
A retro series that finds its rhythm in this story where everything is mixed together and where almost anything goes to entertain us for a while.
A series that achieves what it sets out to do: to take us back in time, in situations, characters, setting and photographic style.
It doesn’t aim to do absolutely anything else.
It’s like going back and, suddenly, watching Starsky & Hutch again, but “Italian” style.
Happy time travel.

An accident with the van sets off a series of unfortunate mishaps, ending with Valentino and Salvo looking down the wrong end of a gun.
A robbery at Gambino’s old apartment goes awry. Tonino forces Valentino and Salvo to find out information about the killer by threatening a loved one.
Salvo’s attempt to reconcile with Ester gets derailed. Agata rethinks her offer to Valentino. Some scary newcomers are also looking for Holy Father.
Ester gets suspicious about her mother’s whereabouts, forcing Valentino and Salvo to run some extreme interference. Salvo learns about Ester’s past.
Valentino finally confesses what he knows… kind of. Agata suspects the blackmailer is someone within the police, but which cop is it?
Primo Sale reveals his own sinister plot. The police close in on Holy Father, as they finally learn who framed Salvo and Valentino.
When brothers-in-law Salvo and Valentino show up at a house call and find a dead body awaiting them, they try to erase all evidence of their presence.
After an overheard voice message leads to heartache for Salvo, he and Valentino flee to a class reunion, where Valentino encounters an old flame.
Valentino fears that the cops aren’t the only ones looking for Gambino’s killer. The duo’s quest to get an incriminating ticket expunged proves costly.
Gangsters connected to Gambino demand that Valentino perform espionage on Agata — and insist that Salvo do something much worse to Ester.
After being brought in by the police, Valentino and Salvo must become double agents as they try to sow seeds of distrust in the mind of a mob boss.
As the police try to keep up their surveillance, Salvo and Valentino are brought to see Holy Father — and are shocked to learn they’ve met him before.
