Apple TV+ has greenlit its first project out of Germany.
Darkly comic TV series Where’s Wanda? answers the question of how far a person would go to save their child. Produced by Fremantle-backed Moonage Daydream-maker UFA Fiction, Where’s Wanda? tells the story of Dedo (Heike Makatsch) and Carlotta Klatt (Axel Stein), who are desperate to locate their missing daughter months after her disappearance. When the police fail to find her, they take matters into their own hands and discover that behind closed doors, none of their neighbors are who they pretend to be.
Where’s Wanda features an ensemble German cast including multiple award-winning actress Lea Drinda (The Gryphon), newcomer Leo Simon, presenter and actress Palina Rojinski (Welcome to Germany) and entrepreneur, actress and author Nikeata Thompson (How to Dad). It is directed by Christian Ditter (How to be Single) and Tobi Baumann (Faking Hitler) and written by British Flack scribe Oliver Lansley based on a story by Zoltan Spirandelli (Lulu).
The show is the first project out of Germany for Apple TV+, a nation that has birthed some landmark originals for rival streamers including Netflix’s Dark, Amazon Prime Video’s The Gryphon and Disney+’s Sam – A Saxon.
Last year, Apple signed veteran producer Dr Franziska An der Gassen as Creative Executive for Germany, and she works closely with Europe boss Jay Hunt and Hunt’s team.
