The BBC has had some success with its daytime crime dramas – Father Brown, The Coroner and Shakespeare & Hathaway have proved to be mild hits, all of which have been recommissioned for more series.
Now we hear the corporation is to add to its daytime crime slate.
The Mallorca Files, set amongst the expat community on the eponymous Spanish island, features a British and German detective clashing over their very different approaches to policing the island. While self-confessed introverted Brit Miranda Blake takes her career (as well as everything else in life) seriously, German Max Wolf is a classic extrovert and unashamedly unconventional. The combination of these two characters and the sun-drenched setting sets the stage for humour as well as thrills, as the duo do battle to solve each new crime.
Created by Dan Sefton (pictured), no casting has been announced yet.
