The trailer for The Law According to Lidia Poët, a six-episode biopic and light legal procedural drama, looks and feels like the British mystery series Miss Scarlet and the Duke.

The series stars Matilda De Angelis (The Undoing, Leonardo, Robbing Mussolini) as Lidia Poët, the real-life first female lawyer in Italy.

Set in the late 1800s, The Law According to Lidia Poët follows Lidia Poët, a young woman in Turin who is prevented from practicing her chosen profession of law — just because she is a woman — when the city’s Court of Appeals rules that her enrollment on the registry of lawyers is illegitimate.

Penniless but full of pride, Lidia secures a job at her brother Enrico’s law firm, where she assists criminal suspects by investigating the murders and seeking the truth behind appearances and prejudices. Jacopo, a mysterious journalist and Lidia’s brother-in-law, passes information to her and guides her into the hidden worlds of a magniloquent Turin.

At the same time, Lidia fights to obtain what is rightfully hers — enrollment on the official register of lawyers — and prepares the appeal to overturn the Court’s decision.

The Law According to Lidia Poët, a Netflix Series, premieres globally on Wednesday, February 15, exclusively on Netflix. (You can set a reminder for it now.)

The series costars Eduardo Scarpetta (My Brilliant Friend, The Ignorant Angels) and Pier Luigi Pasino (Texas).
