Another event with German Films at Séries Mania is having German producers presenting their latest shows.
Five brand new high-end series will be pitched on stage: While the period drama ELDORADO KADEWE (ARD) is telling a female love story in Berlin’s Roaring 20ies, the French-German coproduction ALGIERS CONFIDENTIAL (ZDF, ARTE), based on Oliver Bottini’s novel, is a political thriller series set in today’s Algiers. The dark comedy THE WASP (SKY Germany) follows loser and dart player Eddie, and in the independent drama series PARADISO (SKY Germany), a journalist is drawn into the mysterious life of a writer. Finally, based on the shocking true story of the infamous Worms Trials that rocked the German legal system, THE ALLEGATION (VOX, TV NOW) by lawyer-turned-bestselling author Ferdinand von Schirach asks the question: What happens to justice when public outrage becomes more powerful than the truth?
A highlight trailer of 7 more upcoming series rounds up the presentation on Monday, August 30th , at 10.30 AM.
