"Deutschland 83" is a drama series on SundanceTV that is a coming-of-age spy thriller, which unfolds just as the Cold War between East and West comes to a head.

The captivating story is set against the real culture wars and political events of Germany in the 1980s. The drama follows Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay) as the 24-year-old East German native is pulled from the world as he knows it and sent to the West as an undercover spy for the Stasi foreign service. Hiding in plain sight in the West German army, he must gather the secrets of NATO military strategy. Everything is new, nothing is quite what it seems and everyone he encounters is harboring secrets, both political and personal.

Created by American journalist and author Anna Winger ("This Must Be the Place") and her husband Joerg Winger, a successful German showrunner ("Soko Leipzig"), "Deutschland 83" is executive produced by UFA Fiction's Joerg Winger and Nico Hofmann and directed by Edward Berger and Samira Radsi. The series is a UFA Fiction production for RTL Television in Germany, co-produced by SundanceTV in the U.S. and distributed by FremantleMedia International.
