In Episode 4 I play the role of a retired CIA agent. It was a great pleasure to work with director Barbara Eder.
ZDF has found a broadcasting date for the international co-production "West of Liberty".
The station will broadcast the agent thriller, staged by Barbara Eder, as a two-parter - each 96 minutes long - on Sunday, 24 November and one day later at 22:15 pm.
The international version, comprising six 45-minute episodes, was already available in the ZDF media library a week earlier on November 17.
The production, for which Network Movie, Germany and the Swedish production company Anagram worked in co-production with ZDF and SVT Sweden, is based on the novel of the same name by the author Thomas Engström and is the first part of an entire novel series about the former Stasi informer and double agent Ludwig Licht. The scripts were written by Swedish author Sara Heldt and her British colleague Donna Sharpe.
Wotan Wilke Möhring plays Ludwig Licht, who has retired from active service and has long been the best customer of his less than successful Kreuzberg pub. Then he is contacted by his old CIA colleague GT Berner (Matthew Marsh), who also has his best times behind him and knows that he can only secure his job with a spectacular coup. So together they set off in search of Lucien Gell, the submerged leader of a whistleblower network, played by Lars Eidinger.
