After an initial, successful experience with a German TV drama, the thriller series You Are Wanted, by and starring Matthias Schweighöfer, which Amazon Prime Video launched internationally in March, the global heavyweight has now embarked on Deutschland86, another German small-screen venture that is likely to be even more successful, given that it follows in the footsteps of an internationally acclaimed series and involves several major players: UFA FictionFremantleMedia International (the RTL Group subsidiary that UFA is part of), UFA Distribution and, of course, Amazon

For UFA co-director Nico HoffmannDeutschland86 is the culmination of a “long-term wish” and represents a “milestone” on the path towards setting new standards in TV co-production, also involving video platforms. The production is the sequel to the acclaimed, Emmy-winning spy series Deutschland83 and will once again feature Jonas Nay as East German secret agent Martin Rauch and Maria Schrader as his aunt Leonora, a member of the foreign division of the Stasi.

In Deutschland86 – which will be directed by Florian Cossen (The Day I Was Not Born [+lee también:

Production for the ten episodes of the new series started two months ago in Cape Town and will be completed in Berlin in mid-December. Besides the aforementioned protagonists, Deutschland86 will also star Anke EngelkeSylvester GrothVladimir Burlakov, Ludwig TrepteAlexander BeyerCarina WieseSonja GerhardtFritzi HaberlandtLavinia Wilson and Florence Kasumba.
