Synopsis

A dystopian alternate history television series based on the 1976 novel 'SS-GB' by Len Deighton.
The Battle of Britain has ended in victory for Hitler’s Germany and the population of 1940s Britain struggles to adjust to life under Nazi occupation. Renowned London detective Douglas Archer is caught between his brutal new SS bosses and a ruthless British resistance movement while investigating what looks to be a black market- related murder. As Archer gets closer to the truth, he struggles to uphold the law and protect those he loves from two sides prepared to go to any lengths to control the ultimate outcome of the Second World War.
Berlinale Special Series will premiere the first two episodes of the mini-series.
