Cops Ghent


10 seasons | 130 episodes | 50 min

available as ready made available as format

Cops is set in the historic city of Ghent, Belgium. A city that combines the spectacular settings of a medieval city with the exiting life of a modern university centre.

Cops portrays a group of young policemen. How the challenge of their calling, that of “fighting crime” and their work itself, affects their personal lives and relationships. How their devotion to the pursuit of perpetrators is matched only by their heartfelt compassion for the victims. How even these seasoned cops battle with despair or are forced to admit their powerlessness.

But any cop in the world will tell you that for every hazardous or heartbreaking story, there is a hilarious one waiting around the corner. In this respect too, Cops remains a realistic, and therefore often hilarious portrayal of a cop’s life.
