Political Thriller ‘Capital Power’ Finds International Sales Ally in Global Screen

LONDON — World sales company Global Screen has picked up international rights to six-part political thriller “Capital Power.” It is directed by Friedemann Fromm, who won the German Television Award for “The Weissensee Saga.”

The show stars some of Germany’s leading actors, including Anna Loos, who starred in Stefan Ruzowitzky’s “Anatomy,” Thomas Thieme, who was in Oscar-winner “The Lives of Others” and the Oscar-nominated “Downfall,” and Burghart Klaussner, who appeared in the BAFTA and Golden Globe nominated “Good Bye Lenin!,” and the Oscar-nominated “The White Ribbon.”

The show centers on attorney Susanne Kroehmer, who is a candidate for the Conservative Party to become mayor of Berlin. She mounts an underdog campaign against reigning mayor Manfred Degenhardt. Kroehmer lags hopelessly behind in the polls. When someone starts playing dirty tricks on her and a muckraking journalist airs her family’s dirty laundry, Kroehmer and her spin doctor resort to dubious tactics themselves.

The show is produced by Studio Hamburg’s subsidiary Real Film Berlin for ARD. Global Screen will present footage at the German Screenings in Leipzig in December.
