Sky Studios teams up with French major Gaumont on comedy Wasp, which is produced for Sky Deutschland.
The six-part series tells the story of Eddie Frotzke, a deceased professional dart player who, after a long career crisis, wants to regain his former glory. With the help of his old pal Nobbe, also a rusty darts pro but with a strong tendency to alcohol, Eddie wants to find his way back in life and his career, proving that he was not called ‘ The Wasp ” for nothing.
Jan Berger (Der Medicus) creates and writes the series that will be directed Hermine Huntgeburth (Neue Vahr Süd). Florian Lukas (Goodbye Lenin!) plays the main role. Andreas Bareiss and Sabine de Mardt produce for Gaumont with Quirin Schmidt for Sky Studios.
Filming is expected to start later this year and the project is supported by Film- und Medienstiftung NRW and Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg.
