Not yet heard of HUBERT & STALLER? Shame on you! Still, it’s never too late to join in the fun as two of Bavaria’s finest continue to clean up the criminal cesspit that is the Alpine foothills. Yes, you thought it was all beautiful meadows, timbered houses, snow-capped peaks, stunningly attractive cows with big bells on, flowers, clear running rivers, but... Bavaria’s lethal, we tell you! Lethal!

Fortunately, inspectors Hubert (boyish, rational and orderly) and Staller (awkward, impulsive and quick tempered) are here to hold the line. They both have a dislike of violence and an unshakeable friendship. Their joint smarts mean they know when someone is not telling the truth, and if there is another thing they cannot abide, it is being lied to. The country folks might keep their lips tightly buttoned, but these two local lads have their instincts to rely on and they have not let themselves down yet.

Like any good cop duo Hubert & Staller are backed up by a faithful team, all the better to solve those crimes of greed and lust, pent-up hatred and blind revenge. Or just another day in Bavaria, as some might call it.

This top rating police procedural (66 x 60' HD) ranks regularly amongst ARD’s top rating shows, especially with that most sought-after demographic, viewers aged 14-49. HUBERT & STALLER has also been nominated as Best Series in the German Television Awards.
