The brand-new Sky original drama series Munich Games is slated to launch on Sky Atlantic and NOW in September.
Set 50 years after the Munich Massacre, Munich Games tells the story of two agents—one Israeli and one German—who must work together to stop another terrorist attack. The six-part Sky Deutschland series is written by Michal Aviram (Fauda) and stars Seyneb Saleh, Yousef Sweid, Sebastian Rudolph and Dov Glickman.
In 2022, a friendly football match is planned between an Israeli and a German as a mark of peace and respect for the victims of the 1972 terrorist attack. However, when a Mossad agent stationed in Berlin intercepts a message in a dark web forum just days before the game, he is partnered with a German State Criminal Police officer with Lebanese roots to ensure that history does not repeat itself.
Shot in German, Hebrew, Arabic and English, Munich Games is directed by Philipp Kadelbach (We Children from Bahnhof Zoo, Perfume) and written by Aviram and Martin Behnke (Berlin Alexanderplatz). It is a co-production by Amusement Park Film, CBS Studios and Sky Studios.
The production of Munich Games is supported by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, FilmFernsehFonds Bayern (FFF), the German Motion Picture Fund (GMPF) and the Czech Film Fund.
Munich Games will be available in all Sky markets, including the U.K., Ireland, Italy, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Paramount Global Content Distribution owns the international distribution rights to the series outside the Sky markets.
