DAVOS SWISS ALPS
SET NEW COSTUME DRAMA TO LAUNCH AT MIPTV IN CANNES
|Dominique Devenport and David Kross|
As you probably remember, your most trusted spy was among the first ones in the world to inform you, last winter, about the new six part German and Swiss costume drama DAVOS set in the popular Swiss Alps winter resort. Now, Variety reports that leading European distributor Global Screen will launch this premium quality spy drama over at MipTV in Cannes where it will be offered to the international buyers. The World War I story set in then neutral Switzerland will follow a female main protagonist Johanna, played by empress Sisi Dominique Devenport, a nurse who gets embroiled in a plot involving international spies. She intends to find her illegitimate daughter and agrees to a dangerous deal with the German secret service. Jeanette Hain, David Kross, Anna Schinz, Hanspeter Müller-Drossaart and Sunnyi Melles will also star in the series which was shot earlier this winter. Among the known broadcasters, we know it will air on Swiss channel SRF and German national broadcaster ARD during the 2023-2024 winter television season!
WHAT IS THE STORY OF DAVOS?
World War I is ravaging Europe. By contrast, Davos, the aristocratic spa town in the Swiss Alps, seems like an oasis of peace. But behind the scenes, neutral Switzerland takes center stage in a relentless battle between the secret agents of the world powers. Young nurse Johanna Gabathuler unexpectedly gets caught between the fronts: to win back her illegitimate child, she starts to work as a spy for the German secret service – and suddenly becomes the tipping point in a risky plan that decides over war and peace.
