Based on the best-selling novels by Volker Kutscher, BABYLON BERLIN is the first German TV series where viewers can emotionally experience the story of the political developments leading from the Weimar Republic to the spread of National Socialism. Through the eyes of Gereon Rath, the young police inspector from Cologne, we get a glimpse behind the scenes of the “Roaring Twenties,” which not only brought the Great Depression, but where “dancing on the volcano” became the stuff of legend. Since May 2016 and continuing on until the end of this year, X Filme Creative Pool, ARD, SKY, and Beta Film are bringing the 1920 ́s back to life on original sites in Berlin, namely the back lot set “Neuen Berliner Straße” at the Studio Babelsberg and in North Rhine-Westphalia.
