The international coproduction between FM’s Euston Films and UFA Fiction will be shot in the UK and Germany.

Munich is a spy thriller filled with real-life characters, including Hitler and Mussolini, focusing on events that changed history.

In recent weeks FM has secured a commission from BBC1 for Euston Films’ The Dublin Murders, which is drawn from Tana French’s first two novels In the Woods and The Likeness, and a six-episode series order from History for The Breach: Inside the Impeachment of Bill Clinton, based on the New York Times bestseller by Peter Baker.

Munich is the latest title to join FM’s roster of large-scale drama series.

The deal for the novel marks the first partnership between Bertelsmann-owned publisher Penguin Random House and FM, itself part of the RTL Group, a division of Bertelsmann.
