Munich- After the Nordic-wide success of drama-series like Generation War and Line of Separation, Scandinavian broadcasters have secured more than 40 hours of new German drama from Beta Film.

With this deal DR, NRK, SVT and YLE are spearheading developments  just before a new wave of high-end fiction from Beta Film is about to hit this year´s MIPTV market in Cannes.

Among the handpicked titles are unique shows like the right wing terror-trilogy NSU German History X and Tom Tykwer’s crime-series Babylon Berlin . All four channels also acquired Oliver Hirschbiegel’s spy drama The Same Sky set in the divided city of Berlin and the 15thcentury period drama Maximilian and Marie de Bourgogne about the impoverished Austrian Emperor conquering the heart of Europe’s most wanted bride directed by Andreas Prochaska .
