Spotlight: Global Screen


In the Global Screen highlight Ferdinand von Schirach: Enemies, the story of a 12-year-old girl’s kidnapping is told from the perspectives of an inspector racing against time and the accused’s defense attorney.

The eight-part period drama Turbulent Skies is based on true events and centers on the flight pioneers Albert Plesman and Anthony Fokker. Dark Woods is a true-crime drama about a painful family tragedy. It tells the story of a police officer searching for his missing sister for more than 30 years.

“Regardless of whether a viewer prefers crime stories, sci-fi or thrillers, the key is to always offer good, high-quality storytelling,” says Alexandra Heidrich, Global Screen’s head of acquisitions and sales for international TV and SVOD. “And that is what we focus on when choosing our programs.”

She adds, “We want to offer good entertainment; this means something different for everyone.”
