Zwei Brüder (Two Brothers) is a German detective television series based on an idea by Felix Huby, who also wrote several screenplays. Eleven directors produced 17 episodes of 85-90 minute length for ZDF between 1994 and 2000. The music for the series was by Frank Langer and Wilbert Hirsch.

Plot[edit]

The two brothers, Christoph (Fritz Wepper) and Peter Thaler (Elmar Wepper) could not be more different: the elder Christoph is married and a successful attorney. The younger Peter has given up his studies and is considered by police as a ruthless detective. Both live in the house of the mother (Ruth Hausmeister) and so tensions are inevitable. Together, they go hunting criminals and solve difficult cases.[1]
