FremantleMedia International’s ‘Deutschland 83’ to Air on Sundance TV

FremantleMedia International (FMI) and SundanceTV today announced a ground-breaking partnership that will see the network co-produce the major new eight-part drama, Deutschland 83 with UFA Fiction.  The series will become the first ever German-language drama to be aired on a major US network.

Created by Anna Winger and Joerg Winger, Deutschland 83 is executive produced by UFA Fiction’s Joerg Winger and Nico Hofmann and directed by Edward Berger and Samira Radsi. The series is a UFA Fiction production for RTL Television in Germany, co-produced by SundanceTV in the US and distributed by FremantleMedia International.

The series is set to have its exclusive World Premiere during the inaugural Berlinale Special Series at the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival.

Deutschland 83 is a gripping coming-of-age story set against the real culture wars and political events of Germany in the 1980s. The drama follows Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay) as the 24 year-old East Germany native is pulled from the world as he knows it and sent to the West as an undercover spy for the Stasi foreign service. Hiding in plain sight in the West German army, he must gather the secrets of NATO military strategy. Everything is new, nothing is quite what it seems and everyone he encounters is harboring secrets, both political and personal.
