Deutschland 83 is a groundbreaking new series from the producers of the international Emmy award-winning Generation War. It's 1983. The Cold War is hot. Russian SS20 Missiles in East Germany are already pointed West. American Pershing II Missiles will soon be placed in West Germany, pointing East. The threat of nuclear conflict looms.
Our hero, Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay), is 23. Born and raised in East Germany, he is sent undercover, as Moritz Stamm, to West Germany, to work for a top General in the Bundeswehr. Officially, his job is to gather intelligence on the placement of the Pershing II Missiles. A secondary gig develops, infiltrating youth culture through close relationships with the General's two children. But nothing and no one are as they seem.
Deutschland 83 is a coming-of-age story within a suspenseful thriller, set against the real events, culture wars and political realities of Germany in the 1980s.

Our hero has grown up in East Germany during the height of the Cold War, but he is no ideologue.
Now he finds himself as a well-placed spy in the NATO hierarchy.
While there are a lot of thrills, the most endearing thing about the series is that our hero has significant doubts about the motivations of his seniors and sometimes purposefully does not accomplish the mission for his dark masters.
Well done Desutschland 83!!
