Eurocops was a European TV crime series that was produced between 1988 and 1992.

Seven European television broadcasters started the joint series Eurocops in 1988 , in which several episodes each from ZDF ( Germany ), ORF ( Austria ), SRG ( Switzerland ), RAI ( Italy ), Antenne 2 ( France ), Channel 4 ( Great Britain ) and TVE ( Spain ) were contributed. The investigating police officers included Heiner Lauterbach (Germany), Bernd Jeschek (Austria) and Diego Abatantuono (Italy).

The first episode on German television was Tote Reisen nicht , a Swiss contribution that was broadcast on ZDF on November 6, 1988. A total of 70 episodes were broadcast by 1993.

Opening credits

The opening credits were created entirely on the computer , which was still unusual for that time. From a virtual city ​​map that shows the cities in which Eurocops plays, sculptures "drive up" that depict crimes. At the top of the picture, the respective state flag, the respective police badge (for Germany the police station of North Rhine-Westphalia ), a photo of the investigator and the personal details are displayed. In the final shot, the police badge of the country in which the episode takes place "drives" out of the map and the text Eurocops is displayed at the bottom .

Theme music

The theme music was written by Jan Hammer , the composer of the Miami Vice theme song .
