The BBC is set to release a new ten-part TV show, The Mallorca Files, in 2019. Created by Dan Sefton (The Good Karma Hospital), it is set in the expat community on the Spanish Island of Mallorca. It features two police officers with two distinctive approaches to policing the island of Mallorca. British Miranda Blake is quiet, reserved and career driven while her German counterpart Max Wolf is the complete opposite, an unconventional extrovert. This invariably leads to them clashing as they work to solve crimes in Mallorca.

The show’s production starts in November, with Dan Sefton writing alongside Rachael New, Alex McBride, Sarah Louise Hawkins and Dan Muirden.

Sefton said, “With influences from Almodovar to Coen Brothers, The Mallorca Files brings a fresh new spin to the story of two supposedly mismatched cops forced into an uneasy partnership. Set in the picture-perfect Balearic Island of Mallorca, action-packed, quirky and full of memorable characters, wit, and spectacle, this show is the perfect antidote to the British Winter. It has fun with a classic TV genre.

Ben Donald who is in charge of production at Cosmopolitan Pictures, greenlighting The Mallorca Filesadded “Right from the beginning I’ve wanted to make a series like the cop shows I grew up with and loved, with a pair of loveable characters people are drawn back to and want to hang out with; a show that is unashamedly entertaining and quite honestly a fun antidote to the pretty bleak world out there. In its funding, this series represents the very best of what co-production can do to add value for the UK audience and licence fee payer. I’ve always wanted to find a way to bring the Anglo-German relationship on television out of sketch comedy and into the 21st century.”
