Deutschland 83

Show Summary

RETURNING 2018

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.

The series was renewed for a second season consisting of eight episodes. It will be titled Deutschland 86.
