Death in Paradise (French title: Meurtres au paradis) is a British-French crime comedy-drama created by Robert Thorogood. The show is set in the fictional Caribbean island of Saint Marie, and is filmed in Guadeloupe. The series focuses on a Detective Inspector (DI) and his police team solving murder mysteries on the Caribbean island.

Death in Paradise was first announced on 9 December 2010 by the BBC; commissioned by controller of BBC Drama Commissioning Ben Stephenson. It was revealed that the show would be produced by Red Planet Pictures and Atlantique Productions, in association with Kudos Film and Television, for BBC and France Télévisions. The idea for Death in Paradise came from Robert Thorogood, whose idea was formed after reading a report of a suspected murder in the Caribbean during the Cricket World Cup. Filming for the first series began in spring 2011, with the first series airing between October and December 2011.
