"DARK," THE FIRST NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES PRODUCED IN GERMANY COMMENCES PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - October 18th, 2016 - Netflix and Wiedemann & Berg Television announced today the start of principal photography on Dark, the first German Netflix original series. The creators and showrunners, Helmer Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese, who previously collaborated on Who am I - No System is safe, once again join forces as co-creators and co-showrunners of Dark. Together with Quirin Berg, Max Wiedemann and Justyna Müsch, Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese also act as executive producers. The director of photography is Nikolaus Summerer.

The mystery family saga stars Louis Hofmann, Oliver Masucci, Jördis Triebel, Maja Schöne, Sebastian Rudolph, Anatole Taubman, Mark Waschke, Karoline Eichhorn, Stephan Kampwirth, Anne Ratte-Polle, Andreas Pietschmann, Lisa Vicari, Angela Winkler, Michael Mendl and many more. Shooting will take place until the end of March in locations throughout Berlin and the surrounding area. Dark, a family saga, will debut exclusively on Netflix in late 2017.

The first German production from the world's leading Internet TV Network is set in a German town in present day where the disappearance of two young children exposes the double lives and fractured relationships among four families. In ten, hour-long episodes, the story takes on a surprising twist that ties back to the same town in 1986.

"Bo and Jantje have a great track record of creating unique and compelling thrillers, and have done so again with the creation of Dark" said Erik Barmack, Vice President International Originals at Netflix. "We're thrilled to have started production on our first original series produced in Germany and looking forward to seeing Bo and Jantje's vision come to life".

The showrunners Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar about Dark: "To work on an international series is an exciting and new experience for us. The opportunity to reach an international audience through Netflix is an incentive for us to explore German viewing habits and to push new boundaries. In doing so, we want to create a series that finds its fans both in Germany and around the world."
