It creates this suspense. That was actually a starting point to find the look we were searching for. Odar adds that the creative freedom afforded by Netflix, combined with the flexibility to create something of scale and scope, came in stark contrast to the typical constraints of feature cinema.
Mobsters rule a corner of Berlin in German drama 4 Blocks, which has been renewed for a second season before its debut. DQ chats to the team behind the six-part series.
When it comes to mobsters on the small screen, series such as The Sopranos and Gomorrah can claim to rule the roost.
But the gangs that run New Jersey and Naples respectively could be pushed off the map by the clan at the centre of a new German drama set on the streets of Berlin.
But when his brother-in-law gets arrested in a police sting, Toni feels obliged to step up as leader of the clan once again and prevent his hot-headed brother Abbas German rapper Veysel from becoming head of the family.
Set across six episodes, 4 Blocks tells a story about friendship and family, betrayal and trust, all within an Arab mob living in the central Berlin district of Neukölln.
Instead, they wanted to tell the story from the perspective of the Arab family. The inspiration for the series came from an article Berg had read that said there were areas in Neukölln into which police officers would not venture alone.
Because of the realities of life in Neukölln, the production team sought a story that had a balance between reality and fiction — a process that involved speaking to lots of people who actually live and work in the district.
It was more about the question of who are the people behind it, their family and their relationships. This is what people on the street realised as well.
When we hired some of the cast from the area and brought in lots of extras, word spread that this was not about shaping a certain image.
Leading the project from a creative standpoint was director Kren, whose credits include crime drama Tatort. He has also been hired to helm forthcoming crime drama Freud, about the young psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud in Vienna.
We know they exist in Germany. Then of course there is this backdrop of Neukölln. The interesting thing is if you go to France, nobody knows there is a mafia in Germany, that there are mafia-like structures and mobsters in Germany.
I talked to somebody and mentioned this, and they had no idea this existed. Then we brought Marvin in and he changed the game in a very good way.
He spent a lot of time with people that really contributed by telling him stories and sharing their lives with him.
He soaked in this authenticity and found a way to put it in our project. For leading actor Ramadan, 4 Blocks was something of a homecoming, as until recently he had lived in Neukölln for 37 years.
The funny thing was, after we wrapped principal photography, a policeman came up to us and said while we were shooting the whole area was really quiet and, one day after we stopped, it all went crazy again.
The third original series to air on TNT Serie, after comedy Add a Friend and mystery thriller Weinberg, 4 Blocks has already been renewed for a second season.
Production is due to begin later this year and the season will air in Saying that, we still want to reach for both.
We want to have something critically acclaimed and that also has fans. The rivalry between two brothers that led to the creation of sportswear giants Adidas and Puma is brought to life in a new German miniseries.
DQ speaks to its creators. Instead, the origins of the conflict between sportswear giants Adidas and Puma can be found within a single German family as the story of two brothers is retold in miniseries Rivals Forever — The Sneaker Battle.
Set in the early 20th century, the show follows the Dassler brothers as their initial partnership sees them launch the sports shoe to international fame.
That creates a perfect level of mystery and interest for a TV project. The true story itself is thrilling, dramatic and truly tragic — two brothers who share a vision and drive that vision almost to extremes but fail big time when it comes to keeping their family together.
They change an industry but at the same time create a war within their family. We went to school together and started to do films 20 years ago.
So I could really relate to the brothers sharing one vision and fighting for it, building a company — and I was wondering what could happen to tear them apart?
The Dasslers paid a high price for being so competitive and successful. They sacrificed their brotherhood, their family.
