Plot Summary

The series Tschugger is produced by Shining Film, in co-production with SRF and in collaboration with Sky Switzerland. It centers on a headquarters of the Valais cantonal police. Their work is usually confined to contemplative trifles: runaway sheep, recalcitrant traffic offenders and presence at village festivals. But suddenly, an unbelievable murder attempt wakes the police officers from their deep sleep. Finally something is happening. But before the Tschugger (dialect for "policemen") can jump on the case, the federal police officer Annette is already ready and takes over. The local police chief, Biffiger, appears cooperative on the surface, but his heart beats for his police station, and he knows from experience that not everything from Bern can be trusted. The mismatched Tschugger duo Bax, the wannabe cowboy, and Pirmin, the phlegmatic one, investigate parallel to the federal police officer and use the home advantage. "Tschugger" is a comedy caught between exaggerated boredom, village festival charm, dramatic depth, explosive pseudoaction and raclette smell. Producer Sophie Toth of Zurich-based Shining Film AG is producing the five-part series. It is directed by David Constantin in co-direction with Leandro Russo and with cinematography by Rafael Kistler. The scripts were developed in the Writer's Room under the direction of David Constantin and Mats Frey and writers Johannes Bachmann, Rafael Kistler, Leandro Russo and Sophie Toth. Filming took place in spring 2021 - exclusively on original locations in the Valais, from Martigny to the Simplon. In the main roles are David Constantin as Bax, Dragan Vujic as Pirmin and Anna Rossinelli as Annette. Cedric Schild plays the role of Smetterling. Other roles include Anna Lena Miano as Valerie, Laurent Chevrier as Biffiger, Stefan Parceval as Mirko and many more.
