Confirmed: Netflix announce first German production, Dark

Netflix announce first German production, Dark

The series will be made up of ten episodes, with production set to start later this year.

Netflix have announced Dark, a supernatural family saga which will debut exclusively on the streaming service in 2017 and marks their first German production.

Set in a German town in present day, Dark shows how the disappearance of two young children exposes the double lives and relationships of four families and ties back to the same town in 1986.

Directed by Baran bo Odar (Who am I - No System is Safe) said: “We’re very excited to shoot the first Netflix original series, made in Germany. To be part of the family that brought amazing shows like House of Cards and Bloodline to its audience is a huge honor. As Dark will be an ensemble mystery series, I especially look forward to discovering and working with new German talent. This will be a fantastic ride and I can’t wait to get started.”

“The way Dark was embraced by Netflix was extraordinary,” added writer Jantje Friese. “We’re so happy to be making this show in Germany for Netflix subscribers around the world to enjoy. We couldn’t be happier to team up again with Quirin Berg, Max Wiedemann and Justyna Müsch as production partners, who have already shown with Who Am I that they can take an idea the extra mile.”

The series will amount to ten, hour-long episodes and is due to start production this year, debuting worldwide on Netflix in 2017.
