Babylon Berlin (15-1-2017 | Sky Deutschland)
A historical crime drama bout Berlin during the social and political changes of the Golden Twenties, and a new police commissioner that just moved there from Cologne. It's a creation by Tom Tykwer (Sci-fi movie Cloud Atlas) which means that we are rather excited to see yet another film director go television, even in Europe now. The second season is already scheduled, so it seems a rather serious project (and a $40 million budget).
Volker Bruch, Liv Lisa Fries & Dmitri Alexandrov
Die Lebenden und die Toten (2-1-2017 | ZDF)
The living and the dead is a mini-series based on the best seller by Nele Neuhaus about a team of investigators.
