Docent is a Czech crime television series. Doc. Otto Stehlík tracks down a cold-blooded serial killer as an investigator with unconventional but all the more functional strategy. Stehlík and his professional partner Monika Fousová represent a rather incongruous couple.[1] Jan Malinda and Josef Mareš have written the script. Jiří Strach took over the direction. The first episode premiered on 5 February 2023 on ČT1.[1] and was presented on 12 January in Prague's bio přítomnost. Director Strach revealed there that season 2 is in development and could start filming in the fall of the same year.[2] Shooting of season 2 started in October 2023.[3] Czech television started considering third season at the time.[4]

Plot edit

Unexpected circumstances lead docent Stehlík to the team of the Prague murder party, which is headed by the pragmatic Major Šera. Stehlík is a police academic and a specialist in the psychological profiling of criminals. He shares an office with problematic Captain Fousová. Their attitude towards life, investigative methods and personal esprit are completely different. Their differences still lead them to reveal the perpetrator of so far unsolved murders and to a surprising connection with the current case which is investigated by their colleagues Málek and Plesl.[5]
