Studio Hamburg makes judgement on ARD Degeto’s Berlin Legal

Berlin Legal delves into the world of law, politics and celebrity

German distributor Studio Hamburg Enterprises has acquired the international rights to Berlin Legal, a drama series about one of Germany’s most successful media lawyers.

Produced by UFA Fiction, the prodco behind the Deutschland franchise, for German pubcaster ARD Degeto, Berlin Legal follows the professional life of Leo Roth, who becomes entangled in a mesh of political and private intrigues, all while trying to protect the privacy of her clients.

Berlin Legal is directed by Randa Chahoud (Deutschland 89) and Stefan Bühling (The White Snake), with Felice Götze (Über die Grenze) and Lena Kammermeier (Bleiben will ich wo ich nie gewesen bin) as the head writers.

The cast includes Lavinia Wilson (Deutschland 89), Stefan Kurt, Annika Kuhl, Rainer Sellien, Michaela Caspar, Maryam Zaree (4 Blocks), Niels Bormann (Deutschland 89), Aaron Altaras, Sebastian Hülk, Sophie Rois (Barbarians) and Jacob Matschenz (Berlin Babylon).

Kerstin Grünewald, director of international sales at Studio Hamburg Enterprises, said: “Berlin Legal takes a look behind the murky world of law, politics and celebrity. We are confident the series will have a broad international appeal due to its exciting plot, complex characters and the issues it tackles around privacy, hate speech and fake news, which are timely and relevant to viewers across the world.”
