Berlin Station follows Daniel Meyer, who has arrived at the CIA foreign station in Berlin with a clandestine mission: to uncover the source of a leak who has supplied information to a now-famous whistleblower named Thomas Shaw.

Guided by jaded veteran Hector DeJean, Daniel learns to contend with the rough-and-tumble world of the field agent — agent-running, deception, the dangers and moral compromises. As he dives deeper into the German capital’s hall of mirrors and uncovers the threads of a conspiracy that leads back to Washington, Daniel wonders: Can anyone ever be the same after a posting to Berlin?

The ten-part series, from Paramount Television, is executive produced by Michaël Roskam, writer Olen Steinhauer, Eric Roth, and Steve Golin, Kerry Kohansky-Roberts, Keith Redmon, and Luke Rivett from Anonymous Content.

Production will begin this autumn ahead of a premiere scheduled in autumn 2016.
