About ‘Servir y proteger
‘Servir y Proteger’ is a production of Plano a Plano for RTVE and has been broadcast uninterruptedly for six seasons, from Monday to Friday, at 17.25h, on La 1 of TVE. Set in a police station, it is not a usual police series, but a melodrama with police dyes, where feelings, human relationships, ambitions, betrayals, love… in short, life, are the main issues.
The series shows the most human side of the people who work to guarantee our security. With a strong female presence in the main characters, the series deals with the daily life of a neighborhood police station in the south of a big city like Madrid. The cases investigated by the police are usually small on the criminal scale, but are nonetheless crucial to the lives of those involved, which allows us to focus on conflicts of a social nature (immigration, evictions, gender violence, bullying, etc.). Thus, dramas, joys, hopes and conflicts are always present in the police station and, consequently, in the lives of its characters.
