Sonar Entertainment has teamed up with Germany’s Bavaria Fernsehproduktion and Sky Deutschland to co-produce and distribute the eight-episode series Das Boot, set to begin production in 2017 and to air worldwide in 2018. Sonar holds all global distribution rights to the series, with the exception of Sky’s five European territories, which include Germany, Austria, U.K., Ireland and Italy. The new production is set immediately after the events of Wolfgang Petersen’s 1981 Oscar-nominated anti-war film. While the original film followed the claustrophobic world inside German U-boat, the new miniseries includes the experiences of the French Resistance and Allied forces.
