As German drama continues its renaissance, brace yourselves for a tough, maverick crime drama that flexes the talents of German mega star and Hollywood actor, Til Schweiger (Inglorious Basterds, The Courier, This Means War, Charlie Countryman). Schweiger plays lone-wolf detective Nick Tschiller in this new series, which broke ratings records when it launched in Germany with the best rating in 20 years in the renowned Tatort crime strand.
Having launched in January 2016 with Deutschland 83, which became the highest rating foreign language drama show in UK TV history, Walter Presents continues to seek out and showcase the very best of German drama. NICK’S LAW, set in Hamburg, is a tense; action packed series with a compelling and conflicted lead man at its heart.
Moving his family to Hamburg, Nick Tschiller (Schweiger) is hoping for a fresh start when he takes up his new role at LKA, the State Criminal Investigation Department, but it doesn’t take long before his all-guns-blazing approach to law enforcement lands him in trouble with the District Attorney Hannah Lennerts (played by Edita Malovcic). Drawn to the most disturbing and unsettling cases, Nick and his new partner Yalcin Gümer (played by Fahri Yardim) find themselves charged with taking down the notorious Astan clan who control Hamburg’s shady underworld. While his work life plunges him deep into the world of violent crime, his home life is also escalating out of control as his marriage teeters at breaking point.
Produced by Studio Hamburg for NDR, the series is written by Christoph Darnstädt and gained a record 12.5 million viewers when it premiered in Germany.
The complete box set series launches on All 4 and can be found at walterpresents.com.
