Dark and surprising: Disney unveils its first German series - and they don't sound like Disney at all

In a few days, a new theme world will start on Disney with Star, which will join the existing pillars of Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, Disney and National Geographic. On this occasion, the streaming service presented the new program today and announced further titles for the future.

Disney: These are the first German original series

It was also about the first German original series. A total of two productions have already been determined, which are expected to be available at Star on Disney in 2022. These are the gangster dramedy Sultan City and the miniseries Sam - Ein Sachse. Both sound surprisingly gloomy by Disney standards.

Sultan City in particular is following an interesting trend in the local series landscape. In recent years, TNT series showed a large gangster series with 4 blocks, before a short time later Netflix hit the same line with Dogs of Berlin. Now Disney is trying the genre - with a female point of view in front of and behind the camera.

Sultan City is looked after by the up-and-coming showrunners Ayla Gottschlich and Aysel Yilmaz as well as head author Ipek Zübert. Disney relies on diversity and a mixture of new and familiar faces for the German originals. Behind Sam - Ein Sachse is Germany 83 producer Jörg Winger and Tyron Ricketts.
