Mainz, February 4th, 2021

ZDF Enterprises has picked up the global distribution rights for Unbroken (6 x 45’), an exciting new six-part crime series starring one of Germany’s best known actresses, Aylin Tezel (Almanya - Welcome to Germany, X Company, Tatort).

Produced by Network Movie for ZDFneo, the drama is written by screenwriter and director,  Marc O. Seng (Einer Wie Bruno, Baron Münchhausen, Dark, Freaks) and film director, Andreas Linke (Experiment Bootcamp, Little India, Fugitives).

Robert Franke, Vice President ZDFE.drama, ZDF Enterprises, said: “Unbroken, with its highly original plot, is a superbly crafted thriller building up tension and suspense and culminating in a gripping final episode.”

Aylin Tezel plays the role of the heavily pregnant Detective Superintendent Alex Enders, who disappears without a trace and reappears a week later covered in blood, with no memory and without her baby bump. When her colleagues make no headway in investigating her kidnapping, Alex takes over. In her solo efforts she defies all regulations and boundaries as she becomes entangled in a web of suspicions and lies and risks everything to get her child back.

Unbroken, premiering on ZDFneo this month, is available now through ZDF Enterprises.
