* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': For the most part, the protagonist plotlines focus on Matt Murdock and Karen Page, resulting in this happening.
** Throughout the first part of season 1, Matt and Karen turn out to both be pursuing Wilson Fisk without the other knowing it. Matt is pursuing Fisk head-on through his nighttime activities as the Devil of Hell's Kitchen, while Karen is pursuing Fisk through following the Union Allied money trail with help from Ben Urich.
** In "World on Fire", Nelson & Murdock gets hired by Elena Cardenas, an elderly friend of Sgt. Brett Mahoney's mom, on a tenancy dispute with her landlord, the sleazy Armund Tully. A few episodes later, they find that Tully is also a lackey of Fisk's.
** Through the first part of season 2, all three members of Nelson & Murdock are invested in the manhunt for Frank Castle and know that. But a case of this trope happens in "[[Recap/Daredevil2015S2E4PennyAndDime Penny and Dime]]", as Matt and Karen both find out about Frank's family at the same time and under different circumstances: Matt learns it as Frank [[ActionFilmQuietDramaScene talks to him about his family's demise in the cemetery]] while waiting for the police to arrive, while Karen learns it from [[RearWindowInvestigation searching Frank's house]].

* In ''Series/StrangerThings'', three distinct groups of people (the kids, the sheriff, and Nancy and Johnny) all run around independently trying to figure out what is going on until converging for the Season 1 finale. Each group ends up 'specializing' in a certain area of the investigation. The kids do the most research into the science and idea of The Upside-Down, Nancy and Johnny are mostly dealing with understanding the Demogorgon, and Joyce and Hopper are largely dealing with Eleven's origins.

* In the ''Series/{{Castle}}'' episode "Double Down", Castle and Beckett have a bet with ThoseTwoGuys about who can solve their murder first. Each team finds a suspect, but they both have alibis for their respective murder. The teams call off the bet and join forces when forensic evidence is found linking the victims. Ultimately it turns out [[spoiler:to be a StrangersOnATrainPlotMurder]].

* Easily half the episodes of ''Series/TheGoodGuys'' aired to date rely heavily on this trope. Dan and Jack are intentionally sequestered in the career dead-end of small property crimes, yet as Jack attempts to do his job properly and Dan whines that they ought to be "out there bustin' punks," they inevitably stumble across a much bigger crime in progress, often the ongoing major case their lieutenant specifically barred them from pursuing.

The first team is investigating a man found shot dead downtown. In the B-plot, the second team is examining a woman found strangled dead in her bathroom. Turns out they both had the same hairdresser. Could it be that both teams are WorkingTheSameCase?
