Department S is a Paris-based, internationally operating department of Interpol . She is tasked with particularly mysterious cases that could not be resolved by other police authorities or intelligence services . The department is headed by Sir Curtis Seretse ; His team consists of the American Stewart Sullivan , the British computer specialist Annabelle Hurst and the British playboy Jason King , who also works successfully as a crime novelist .

Guest roles included Lois Maxwell , Eric Pohlmann , Anthony Hopkins , Jean Marsh , Richard Vernon and David Prowse .


The series was conceived by Dennis Spooner and Monty Berman and produced by ITC Entertainment , which was also responsible for series number 6 , Die 2 and Simon Templar . In addition to the unusual cases, she also relied on the main character Jason King. Due to the great popularity of the character with the public, Department S was discontinued in favor of a new series based solely on King .

The British new wave band Department S was named after the series.


The German synchronization was based on the dialogue books by Karlheinz Brunnemann (Season 1) and Rainer Brandt (Season 2). Brunnemann also directed dialogue. Similar to Die Zwei, it was provided with a Schnodder synchronization ; in the first season, however, still very subtle.
