Allawi’s Law: Season Three Trailer
Allawi’s Law, developed by long-time tdaxp-reader PKA, is a reimagining of The Shield, but with international politicians in all the major roles. The Season 2 Teaser came out in March 2005, so it is about time for the Season 3 Trailor…
The trailer immediately begins in an afternoon sun-lit room. Standing up and visibly nervous is L. Paul Bremer. Sitting down is the new chief of police, Colin Powell.
Bremer: He’s been a problem in my side since day one. Even now I, a city council member, have to put up with Allawi. There’s nothing I can do! But he’s your problem now.
Powell: Wrong Bremer. He’s OUR problem. I will set things up but we have to finish him together. Remember that I made you.
Bremer (Close to panicking): But I’m my own man now!
Powell (Angier in his voice): Fool! Voinovich thought the same thing and now he is crying like a baby because of what I did to him! We must take out Allawi!
Voinovich: Another of Powell’s Many Victims…
Bremer: I’ll help you get Allawi but then I’m out. What do you have in mind?
Iyad Allawi: The Shield of Justice
Screen shows Bremer’s shocked expression while an announcer’s voice is heard.
Announcer: This fall, Allawi’s Law meets its biggest challenge yet.
Screen shows Sharon making a speech in front of the other cops.
Sharon: Due to Chalibi’s leave of absence I am now head of Internal Affairs. The strike team will have a new leader since I’m busting Allawi down. Everyone, meet Shimon Peres.
Peres: Thank you my friend. I pledge allegiance to the victor.
Camera moves to show Allawi and the strike team’s shocked expression. Allawi runs up to Powell.
Allawi: What is this?
Powell: Your downfall, of course.
Next scene shows Powell alone with two of Allawi’s lieutenants.
Announcer: Loyalties will be tested.
1st Lieutenant (With malice in his voice): What do you want?
Powell: You know what I want. Allawi. And I’ll reward those who give him to me.
The first lieutenant spits at Powell but the second lieutenant, played by Gordon Brown, appears to think about the proposal in his head.
The subsequent scene has Allawi and the Lieutenants at a bar discussing plans and events.
Allawi: The strike team did what?
1st Lieutenant: We were forced to arrest your old partner, Netanyahu on charges of trying to impede the investigation of al-Jaafari.
Allawi: What? That’s nonsense!
Brown: What are you going to do?
Allawi: Try to save me, the team, Bibi, and take down Powell and al-Jaafari.
Announcer: This season will be a long, dark night for Allawi
The final part is grayed-out. Allawi is sitting hunched over. He is looking down away from the camera. Johnny Cash’s Hurt is playing on the soundtrack. Voice-overs are heard.
Allawi: Who is setting me up? My team?
1st Lieutenant: Gordon, you told Sharon about the money train?!?
Allawi: My enemies?
Peres: Officer Sharon, the strike team is turning on itself.
Allawi: My allies?
Brown: Don’t shoot! Bolton is Allawi’s friend!
Sharon: I know.
Condi Rice: You can’t be here Allawi. You’re a wanted man. What are you going to do?
Allawi: Take them all down.
Allawi then looks up into the camera with a stern look.
Announcer: This fall, Allawi stands up for justice!
