RTL in Germany is preparing to air a new TV movie that will serve as a backdoor pilot to a possible new crime series.

Mantrailer –  Spuren des Verbrechens (aka Mantrailer – Traces of the Crime) tells the story of a pathologist and her dog who have moved to Berlin to take charge at the local homicide unit when they must investigate a series of attacks against the city’s special police force.

It takes its title – Mantrailer – from the name of specialist search and rescue dogs.
