Das Boot will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Wednesday February 6th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Das Boot is set in 1942 in occupied France where the U-612 is bracing for its maiden voyage. Led by the young commander Hoffmann, 40 men are heading towards their first ever mission in an increasingly brutal war, all cramped within the metal vessel. Personalities clash and loyalties shatter as they are tried by the unspeakable horrors of war. Will they live to make it back ashore?
Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, Simone Strasser’s world is quickly spinning out of control. Deep into an impossible love affair that has her torn between the two sides, Simone must now navigate a world full of deception and betrayal, all under the watchful eye of the Gestapo’s Hagen Forster. The eight episode drama series, which is a sequel to the 1981 feature film of the same name, is produced by Bavaria Fernsehproduktion, Sky Deutschland and Sonar Entertainment and stars Lizzy Caplan, August Wittgenstein, Vicky Krieps, Jonathan Zaccai, Leonard Scheicher, Robert Stadlober, Franz Dinda and Stefan Konarske.
