Operation Phoenix - hunters between the worlds is an eleven-part mystery - television series made by RTL was produced and aired in 1997 and 1999.


The Operation Phoenix team, consisting of Christoph Volz, Mark Pohl, Kris Mertens and Richard Lorentz, is investigating mysterious cases on behalf of the Federal Ministry of the Interior. While Mark believes in the supernatural, Kris wants to approach the phenomena psychologically. Richard and Christoph tend to be skeptical and only believe what they see. In the course of the series, an aggressive ghost apparition, a mysterious ancient Egyptian pharaoh, a divine avenging angel, Celtic druids and an unscrupulous devil cult wreak havoc. In addition, a submarine of the German Wehrmacht is apparently on a journey through time and a deceased Foreign Legionnaire murders by means of transmigration of souls.


Operation Phoenix - Hunters Between the Worlds was announced to the public as the first German mystery series and was planned as a German variant of the X-Files series - The FBI's uncanny cases, which was particularly successful in the USA . The pilot film was broadcast in October 1997; another ten episodes did not follow until 1999. However, since the series was far less successful with German audiences than its counterpart in the USA, it was canceled in 1999.
