This follows on sales to HBO Europe for all territories in Central Europe and Scandinavia, RTÉ in Ireland, Sundance TV Iberia in Spain and Portugal and RTP in Portugal, as well as SBS in Australia and Rialto in New Zealand.

A second season of six new episodes is currently in preproduction following the series’ broadcast on ZDF and ARTE France in March.
