The producer of the German-speaking series Babylon Berlin is going to be a series about the international football world and the dark side of football. The series is called The Net, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Producer Beta Film, Babylon Berlin, the most expensive German tv-series ever, goes to The Net to work with Red Bull Media House. The project covers an area of five self-contained drama series, each consisting of eight episodes about different characters from the football, including a scheidrechter, a sports physician, a talent from Africa and a lawyer.
The Net is according to the makers not only about the luxury and glamour of football, “but also about the world of corruption, drugs, organised crime and laundering of money that the game have affected.” The pictures are for 2019 and 2020 and planned.
Babylon Berlin is directed by director Tom Tykwer.
