Unorthodox and Deutschland franchise creator Anna Winger has sealed a multi-year overall deal with Netflix.
The Berlin-based American producer and her production company Airlift Productions will develop and produce international drama series for the streamer.
The pact’s first project, currently in pre-production, is Transatlantic, a drama series set during the 1940 refugee crisis in Marseilles, France. The story is inspired by the true adventures of the Emergency Rescue Committee and Julie Orringer’s 2019 novel, The Flight Portfolio. Winger created the series with Daniel Hendler.
Winger is also working with Netflix’s U.K. team on a contemporary original series set in the English countryside.
