Deutschland 83 follow up Deutschland 86 will receive its UK premiere on More4 on Friday March 8th at 9pm, it has been announced. All 10 episodes will be also available to stream on Walter Presents via All 4 on Friday March 8th, following the linear broadcast of episode one on More4.
Deutschland 86 picks up with Martin Rauch, his Aunt Lenora and their colleagues at the East German foreign intelligence agency HVA three years after the events of Deutschland 83. Abandoned by Moscow and desperate for cash, the East German leadership pushes their secret operatives to experiment with global capitalism and save their sinking socialist ship. Long banished to Africa for his sins in 1983, Martin Rauch is now sent back into the field. Dark deals and a dangerous mission lead him to South Africa, Angola, Libya, Paris, West Berlin and finally back to East Berlin, where he must make an impossible decision.
His journey plays out to a soundtrack of international pop music – against a backdrop of Perestroika, proxy Cold Wars, the struggle to end Apartheid, a year of terror in Western Europe, and the creeping feeling back home in East Germany, that the end just might be near The drama series, which was created by Anna Winger and Jörg Winger, is produced by UFA Fiction in association with with Amazon, FremantleMedia International and UFA Distribution and stars Jonas Nay (Homevideo), Maria Schrader (In Darkness), Sylvester Groth (Inglorious Bastards), Vladimir Burlakov (Bright Night), Ludwig Trepte (4 Blocks), Alexander Beyer (Burg Schreckenstein), Carina Wiese (Alarm für Cobra 11 – Die Autobahnpolizei), Sonja Gerhardt (Jack the Ripper), Anke Engelke (Ladykracher), Fritzi Haberlandt (Erbsen auf halb 6), Lavinia Wilson (Schoßgebete) and Florence Kasumba (Black Panther).
