Dark, the first original German Netflix series, premiered on the streaming service to great reviews. The New York Times profiled director Baran Bo Odar, and The Verge says:
Netflix’s Dark is hard to watch, and impossible to stop watching. The service’s first original German series echoes David Lynch and David Fincher, but finds its own queasy, compelling ground.
I translated the screenplays for all ten episodes into English. I’ve watched the first 3 episodes last night and I’m thrilled with the way the show turned out — the Verge is definitely on to something. Can’t wait to binge on the rest of Dark.
The hard-boiled Berlin gangster drama 4 Blocks is available on Amazon Prime, starting today. 4 Blocks is a six-part series set in Neukölln that “relies on shocking images, fast cuts, bright colors, German-Arabic slang and a hip-hop soundtrack to draw in viewers.” (DW) 4 Blocks premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and is produced by TNT Serie and Wiedemann & Berg.
I helped translate 4 Blocks into English. Find out more about my translation projects and watch the trailer below!
I translated scripts for all ten episodes of the upcoming TV series Dark, an appropriately-titled mystery about disappearing children in a small German town. It’s Netflix’s first original German production, and the first teaser trailer just launched. The series will be premiering this winter.
