DESCRIPTION:
(from Disney+'s press release, March 2022) "Sam - A Saxon", a new German original series for Disney+, began production in January. The series will be filmed until the end of May under the direction of lead director Soleen Yusef and director Sarah Blaßkiewitz. "Sam - A Saxon" is based on the incredible true story of Samuel Meffire, East Germany's first Black policeman. The gripping series follows Sam on his relentless search for home and his fight for justice against an over-powerful system. The series will reveal his childhood as an outsider, shaped by the murder of his father, his meteoric rise as a symbolic figure and the media sensation of a new Germany; to Sam's deep fall from grace and his escape as state enemy number one. The highly emotional and thrilling series produced by Emmy Award winner Jörg Winger and Tyron Ricketts shows a gripping and new view of Germany that will leave you speechless and move you at the same time.
