Dogs of Berlin is a web television series and the second German series produced for Netflix after Dark.[1][2][3][4][5] First pictures of the ongoing production were shown in April 2018,[6][7] after production started in November 2017.[1]

The first season was released on Netflix on December 7, 2018.[8]


Police officers Erol Birkan and Kurt Grimmer investigate the murder of the fictional Turkish-German football star Orkan Erdem. The act sends Berlin into a frenzy, and the list of potential suspects is long: neo-Nazis from the Marzahn borough of Berlin, the Lebanese family clan from the same neighborhood as the footballer, Turkish nationalists angry with the superstar playing for Germany instead of Turkey, football fans, and the Berlin mafia. The chain of evidence may even lead to the highest offices of the capital. In order to uncover the truth, the two police officers have to venture deep down into the Berlin underworld.[8]
