Flanders is supporting a new European police series The Team co-produced by Ghent-based Lunanime, with Network Movie and Nordisk Films, which is partly shot in the region.
The new 8 x56' project received aid from the Flemish Media Ministry's Flanders Audiovisual Fund/Media Fund.
The project has also been submitted to Screen Flanders, the economic support measure for audiovisual works.
The Team, based on the European Joint Investigation Team set up in 2010 to prevent and fight international organised crime, follows the investigation of a unit of experts after three dead bodies are discovered in Copenhagen, Berlin and Antwerp.
The series intends to build on the success of Scandinavian crime series, and spread Nordic-noir style over the continent.
In co-operation with German broadcaster ZDF, producer Peter Nadermann, previously involved in the series The Killing and The Bridge, has put together a large international co-production between six different countries.
Filming starts on 21 October in Copenhagen, with a total of 133 days of shooting in Denmark, Belgium, Germany, Austria and Switzerland expected. A large number of the exterior shots are scheduled to take place in Antwerp as well as all the pre-shoots and interior shots. Main of the post-production, except the editing, will also be done in Belgium.
