Max McLaughlin is an American cop who arrives in Berlin in the summer of 1946 to help create a police force in the chaotic aftermath of the war.
Max’s goal is to take down ‘Englemacher’ Gladow, the Capone of post-war Berlin. At the same time, Max undertakes a secret crusade to find his missing brother, who is killing ex-Nazis in hiding.
Unbeknownst to Max, he is being used as a pawn in what is the actual beginning of the Cold War. This eight part series will push the essence of what humanity is all about, to find peace where there is still war.
To find trust where there is no honour. To love the present because it is stronger than the past.
Stars Taylor Kitsch and Michael C Hall.
