BritBox UK will exclusively premier the sophisticated, 6-part spy thriller series SPY CITY which was produced by LEONINE Studios’ production banner Odeon Fiction and MIRAMAX TV on 23rd December 2021.

SPY CITY stars Dominic Cooper (Preacher, Mamma Mia) as secret agent Fielding Scott, who has been sent to 1961 Berlin by a clandestine division within the Secret Intelligence Service of Great Britain. His mission is to find out the source of the hemorrhage of vital security information. The Russians, it seems, know everything. Someone in Berlin is giving away all the secrets of the Western powers – American, British and French. Fielding’s is possibly the hardest job in the world. Clean up Berlin. Find out who the traitor is. And expose, arrest or eliminate them.

International cast members include Leonie Benesch (Babylon Berlin, The White Ribbon), Adrian Lukis (Judy, Pride and Prejudice), Johanna Wokalek (The Baader Meinhof Complex) and Romane Portail (A Kid) in this series by internationally acclaimed novelist William Boyd (Any Human Heart, Restless).  Miguel Alexandre (Arthur & Claire, Shades of Happiness, Gran Paradiso) photographed and directed the series.

SPY CITY’s producers are Odeon Fiction’s Britta Meyermann, Mischa Hofmann and Ann-Kathrin Eicher. Dominic Cooper, William Boyd, Thomas Augsberger and Bill Block are executive producers alongside Magenta TV’s Michael Schuld, Sven Philipp and ZDF’s Wolfgang Feindt and Annika Schmidt.

The series was co-produced by German public broadcaster ZDF, Seven Stories and Wilma Film, in association with Magenta TV and funded by FFF Bayern, Nordmedia, German Motion Picture Fund, Czech Film Fund and co-financed and executive produced by Miramax. ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group handles global sales.
