Quick departure from the usual fan-centric mode of this blog. I have just read an article in Postdamer Neue Nachrichten, found and shared by fellow fan Irina Volkova on Twitter. Gist: BS may be shown in Germany, soon. Here is the link to the article (German): http://linkis.com/www.pnn.de/potsdam/T1YKR
And for those of you not able to read German, I have quickly translated the text:
Two observations: Richard Armitage listed first among the cast mentions. Second, “the series received much praise”… Both: YAY!!!!
ETA: Herba just pointed out a link to an audio interview with DOP Hagen Bogdanski and location manager Angela Mages. It’s in German, and available until 24 August 2017 at ARD Mediathek. In it, Bogdanski and Mages talk about their desire to show Berlin as a historically grown metropolis with many facets but away from the tourist sights, and explain the process of finding locations (a total group effort with any team member invited to make suggestions). Bogdanski is a Berlin native and says the series allowed him to see his home town from a completely different perspective. Both crew members were keen on showing Berlin as it really is – which went as far as shooting the car chase scene realistically and not piecing it together from different parts of the city. According to Bogdanski, an announcement on the availability of BS in Germany is imminent.
