German Cold War drama Deutschland 83 will receive its UK premiere on Channel 4 on Sunday January 3rd at 9pm, it has been announced.
Set in the 1980s, Deutschland 83 follows Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay) as the 24-year-old East German 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.
The series will initially premiere in the UK with a linear broadcast on Channel 4 before being made available exclusively as a boxset on Walter Presents (formerly known as 4 World Drama) – the VOD service C4 is launching in partnership with Global Series Network, which aims to be the go-to destination, at least in the VOD space, for high-end foreign language drama series in the UK.
