The writer of Good Karma Hospital and Trust Me has a new sun-drenched detective drama coming to BBC1: The Mallorca Files.
Dan Sefton is showrunner on the Spanish-set daytime drama which centres around the ex-pat community in Mallorca and, more specifically, a British and German detective butting heads over how to police the island.

British copper Miranda Blake is a “self-confessed introvert” who takes everything very seriously, while her German counterpart Max Wolf is, you guessed it, a total extrovert and has a much more free-spirited approach.
The clash between the pair promises to be full of “humour as well as thrills” as they endeavour to solve crimes in Mallorca.
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 weather.”
The ten-part series is penned by a team of writers. It will begin production in November this year and air on BBC1 in 2019. Casting is yet to be confirmed.
