Deutschland 83

London, UK – FremantleMedia International announced its acquisition of the global distribution rights to UFA Fiction’s major new eight-part drama, Deutschland 83. Created by Anna Winger and Joerg Winger, the German-language drama is produced by Joerg Winger and Nico Hofmann (UFA Fiction), and has been commissioned by RTL Television in Germany. Deutschland 83 is a suspenseful coming-of-age story set against the real culture wars and political events of Germany in the 1980s.

Jens Richter, CEO of FremantleMedia International, said, “Deutschland 83 is fast-paced, edgy, humorous and highly entertaining. Anna Winger and Joerg Winger, along with UFA Fiction, have elegantly translated a complex idea into a unique high-end drama which we believe will be one of the biggest dramas of 2015.”
