Guten Tag. Amazon Studios will be testing the international waters with Wanted, its first German-language series. German star Matthias Schweighoefer will write, direct, and star. Pantaleon Entertainment (Schweighoefer’s company), Warner Bros. Entertainment, and Warner Bros. International Television Production Deutschland will produce. The series will premiere on Amazon Prime in Germany and Austria in 2017.
Having your show greenlit has to feel good. Getting a four-season order right off the bat has to feel even better. Amazon picked up four thirteen-episode seasons of Thunderbirds Are Go, an update of the British 1960s sci-fi series. The new series, from ITV Studios Global Entertainment, will use a mixture of live-action model sets and CGI animation and debut on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S. later this year, followed by the U.K., Germany, and Austria.
