Netflix announces second German title ‘Dogs of Berlin’

MUMBAI: Internet TV network Netflix continues its investment in European and German content with the announcement of ‘Dogs of Berlin’.

The 10-episode series is the second German Netflix original after ‘Dark’ and will launch in 2018 exclusively to members around the world.

‘Dogs of Berlin’ tells the story of two contrasting Berlin police detectives who become a team against their will – and are forced into a territorial battle with the Berlin underworld that confronts them with their own human weaknesses and criminal activities – and into a final decision on which side of the law they’re actually on.

The showrunner of this edgy, modern crime drama is Christian Alvart who will write and direct. Alvart ‘Antibodies’, ‘Case 39’, ‘Pandorum’ is a filmmaker who has been working both in Germany and in Hollywood.

Said Alvart, “To develop a 10-episode show that combines innovative storytelling with complex and unique characters is very exciting for me as an author and director. I wanted to tell the story of these ‘Dogs’ for quite some time and am very much looking forward to finally bringing them to life together with Netflix’s creative team. They couldn’t have found a better home.”

“ ‘Dogs of Berlin’ is a fascinating project for our production company. ogether with Netflix we have the unique chance to merge Christian’s creative force with our vision of entertainment on the highest international level. With my longtime experience on TV series, which have always been my great passion, we will produce a show which will blow the audience’s mind,” said Syrreal Entertainment CEO, producer Siegfried Kamml.

Netflix VP international originals Erik Barmack said, “ ‘Dogs of Berlin’ tells a compelling and modern German story that dives into the Berlin underworld. Christian Alvart is a great storyteller and a director who knows how to create spectacular and gripping entertainment. We are thrilled that he will realise our second Netflix original that will be completely written, produced and shot in Germany.”
