Netflix Plans Sexy Serial Killer Hunting “Freud”

Netflix has hopped onboard German-language period crime thriller series “Freud” from producers Satel Film/Bavaria Fiction.

The project, the streaming service’s first Austrian original, follows a young Sigmund Freud in Vienna in 1886 whose revolutionary theories are being met with strong opposition from colleagues and wider Austrian society.

He soon meets war veteran and policeman ​Alfred​ Kiss and notorious medium Fleur Salome and unwittingly becomes part of a nerve-racking investigation into a serial killer.

The new take is being dubbed a “modern, sexy and suspenseful take on the life of the celebrated doctor”. Marvin Kren (“Tatort,” “4 Blocks”) helms the eight-episode series which begins production in the Fall. Kren, Stefan Brunner and Benjamin Hessler will pen the scripts.
