Deutschland 83 is a German television series that premiered on the Sundance Channel in 2015. Set in the Cold War era, the show revolves around Martin Rauch, a young East German soldier who is tasked with going undercover in West Germany as a spy. The show features a talented cast, including Alexander Beyer as Tobias Tischbier, Errol Trotman-Harewood as General Arnold Jackson, Jonas Nay as Martin Rauch, Lisa Tomaschewsky as Yvonne Edel, Ludwig Trepte as Alex Edel, Santina Maria Schrader as Lenora Rauch, Sonja Gerhardt as Annett Schneider, Sylvester Groth as Walter Schweppenstette, and Ulrich Noethen as General Wolfgang Edel.

The show begins with Martin being recruited by Lenora Rauch, a high-ranking officer in the East German intelligence agency. With the help of his mother, Ingrid, who works at the Stasi headquarters, Martin is given a new identity and sent to West Germany under the guise of a lieutenant working for the General Staff of the Bundeswehr. His mission is to gather intelligence on NATO's plans for a potential nuclear attack on the Soviet Union.

Martin is quickly taken under the wing of General Arnold Jackson, a US Army officer, and lover of Martin's aunt, who is a professor of physics in the US. General Jackson is impressed by Martin's intelligence and military skills and gives him access to highly classified information. Martin's main task is to report on the Pershing II missile, a highly advanced weapon that the US plans to deploy in Europe.

As Martin begins to infiltrate the West German military bureaucracy and develop relationships with his West German colleagues, he begins to appreciate the freedom and prosperity that the West German way of life provides. He also begins to fall in love with Yvonne Edel, the daughter of his host family, who is a student activist and aspiring journalist.

As Martin becomes more involved with Yvonne, his loyalties become increasingly divided. He must decide whether to follow Lenora's orders and continue to steal secrets or to follow his heart and do what is right for himself and his newfound friends in the West.

The show is well-written and tightly paced, with plenty of action and intrigue to keep viewers engaged. The production design and attention to period detail are also top-notch, capturing the look and feel of both East and West Germany in the early 1980s.

Overall, Deutschland 83 is a gripping spy thriller that offers a unique perspective on Cold War history. It's a must-watch for fans of the genre and anyone who is interested in the politics and culture of East and West Germany during this pivotal period in world history.

Deutschland 83 is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (27 episodes). The series first aired on June 17, 2015.
