Filming began today on the eight-part series, in which a police helicopter pilot from Berlin is demoted to a country force where, fearing he will be left solving disputes over garden fences on an antiquated force, finds his new colleagues solve cases that are anything but trivial.

The show will see a variety of cases where the lead character is also able to use his skills as a helicopter pilot as a new tool to solve crimes.

Ostseecops is produced by Opal Filmproduktion. Filming is due to take place until mid-August, with the show due to air this fall.
