Deutschland 83

Show Summary

The ten part second season, Deutschland 86, finds unenthusiastic spy Martin Rauch banished to Africa after his decision to blow his cover in order to prevent a nuclear crisis is called back into the field and sent on a dangerous mission to South Africa, Angola, Libya, Paris, West Berlin and finally back to East Berlin, where Martin must make a difficult decision. East Germany finds itself in extreme financial straits in the declining years of the Soviet empire. The gang from East Berlin is now focused on raising cash - by any way needed. Martin’s aunt Lenora is on a mission in South Africa to close a weapons deal, while Martin’s ex-girlfriend Annett and his former handler/father Walter are using citizens as unlawful guinea pigs for a West German company’s drug trial. The show was shot on location in Cape Town and Berlin. The second season begins Thursday October 25, 2018 on Sundance TV.

The eight part series Deutschland 83 is an engrossing coming-of-age story and spy thriller set in Germany in the ‘80s. The series takes the viewer to the other side of the Cold War rivalry - the Iron Curtain in East Germany. GDR espionage agent Leonar Rauch is convinced the Americans are planning a pre-emptive war. She comes up with the idea of planting a young East German on a West German military base to spy on NATO military strategy. Her candidate is her 24 year old nephew, Martin. At first he is unwilling, but he is promised that his ailing mother will get the operation she needs - if he cooperates. Deutschland 83 was co-created by wife and husband Anna and Jörg Winger. She's an American and he's from Cologne, Germany. Deutschland 83 is filmed entirely in German. The series is an UFA Fiction Production with RTL and Sundance TV.
