Netflix Announces Dogs of Berlin Created By Christian Alvart As Its Second German Title

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., April 28, 2017 - Netflix, the world's leading entertainment network, 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.

Showrunner of this edgy, modern crime drama is Christian Alvart who will write and direct. A true auteur with a great vision for this world, Alvart (Antibodies, Case 39, Pandorum) is an award winning filmmaker who has successfully been working both in Germany and in Hollywood.

Christian Alvart on working with Netflix: �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' creative team. They couldn't have found a better home."

�Dogs of Berlin is a fascinating project for our production company", says Siegfried Kamml, CEO and producer of Syrreal Entertainment. �Together 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."

Erik Barmack, Vice President International Originals at Netflix, adds: �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 realize our second Netflix original that will be completely written, produced and shot in Germany."
