Sundance Channel has started aggressively advertising for Deutschland 83, their Cold War miniseries event that will mark the first ever German-language program broadcast on American television that we first heard about in February. Set (naturally) in Germany in 1983, Deutschland 83 is a teen coming of age story mixed with an espionage drama unfolding against an ever-escalating Cold War as East and West came the closest to WWIII since the Cuban Missile Crisis. Filled with period-appropriate pop music, it should make an excellent counterpart to The Americans. It looks sort of like that show re-imagined for MTV Europe. Watch a cool teaser with no footage and a more traditional trailer on the Sundance website, or check out a tongue-in-cheek, narration-heavy trailer full of tradecraft below:
This looks pretty great! Deutschland 83 premieres next week, June 17, at 11/10c on Sundance.

Trailer is geo-blocked. This may get a UK airing as its produced by Sky Deutschland, who have recently been acquired by Sky UK.
Oh, that's too bad. Is there a global version on YouTube? I posted the one put up by Sundance, and American network. Perhaps there's a Sky Deutschland one on YouTube. I would think it would air in the UK somewhere. British television seems more open to shows in other languages than American television in general.
