In addition to numerous first broadcasts, 17 Sky Originals are in the talon this year alone. In total there are over 3,800 series episodes on offer.
The Mark of a Killer – Murderers and their trademarks” will be shown here “as well as” Killer Couples: Murderous Couples “, with which one moves serial offenders on the skin.
“Wirecard scandal” and “lawyers for evil”
Above all, they rely on in-house productions here too. From May 13, for example, the documentary “Wirecard scandal” about the German company scandal with strong Austrian involvement around the then CEO Markus Braun and the fleeting CFO Jan Marsalek can be seen on Sky Crime. Further “Sky Originals” are the story of the German serial killer Niels Högel, convicted in 85 cases, “Black Shadow – Serial Murder in the Hospital”, the adaptation of the podcast series by Philipp Fleiter under the title “Crimes from next door” or “Lawyers of Evil – between law and conscience “on the everyday life of public defenders.
The productions should still be seen this year.
Sky Comedy with Dieter Nuhr, among others
In-house formats should also play a key role in Sky Comedy. Cabaret artist Dieter Nuhr can be seen from April 1st with the “Short History of Humor” split into three episodes, while comedy veteran Thomas Hermanns has found a new broadcasting home with the “Quatsch Comedy Club”.
The cult doll series “Spitting Image” is celebrating a new and happy birth with a good 100 doll images from Angela Merkel to Jürgen Klopp and Kim Kardashian from April 6th, although a German version is even being considered, according to Christian Asanger, Vice President Entertainment at Sky Deutschland. And in the doll-free sector, the Canadian, emmy-showered comedy production “Schitt’s Creek” can be experienced about a very wealthy family who have to build a new existence after bankruptcy in the small town of the same name.
