Directed by Samira Radsi and Edward Berger
Emmy Award Winner - Best International Drama
Deutschland 83 is a groundbreaking new series from the producers of the international Emmy award-winning Generation War. It's 1983. The Cold War is hot. Russian SS20 Missiles in East Germany are already pointed West. American Pershing II Missiles will soon be placed in West Germany, pointing East. The threat of nuclear conflict looms.
Our hero, Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay), is 23. Born and raised in East Germany, he is sent undercover, as Moritz Stamm, to West Germany, to work for a top General in the Bundeswehr. Officially, his job is to gather intelligence on the placement of the Pershing II Missiles. A secondary gig develops, infiltrating youth culture through close relationships with the General's two children. But nothing and no one are as they seem.
Deutschland 83 is a coming-of-age story within a suspenseful thriller, set against the real events, culture wars and political realities of Germany in the 1980s.
ORDERS WILL SHIP TO UNITED STATES ONLY, NO EXCEPTIONS
"Like The Americans, Deutschland 83... transports us to the other side of the Cold War rivalry, but this time much closer to the Iron Curtain, in East Germany. IT'S A TRIP WORTH TAKING." - Time Magazine
"A stylish take on the spy genre that carefully balances its humor with high stakes" - The AV Club
"It's a slinky thriller, well scored, well paced, cast with beautiful faces." -The New Yorker
Deutschland 83 often ... its mixture of tense action and melodrama is great fun." ★★★ F. Swietek, Video Librarian
Winner - 2016 International Emmy - BEST DRAMA.
