New Crime Drama TV Show Explores The World of Berlin’s Underground Techno Scene

A new Amazon Prime TV show is set in Berlin’s underground techno scene, the story revolving around the life of club promoter Robert “Beat” Schlag.

The protagonist loves to party and is deeply intertwined with Berlin’s nightlife scene and the drugs, sex and antics that come with it. In the show, Schlag works at what is described as “Berlin’s most famous techno club,” possibly alluding to Berghain although no other specific reference is known at this moment.

The plot sees Schlag recruited by European Secret Services to go undercover and expose a human-organ trafficking ring that is operating hidden within Berlin’s nightclub scene. The synopsis for the show states that,  “he soon discovers the shocking extent of corruption in his close network and also his personal limits. Beat works as a promoter in Berlin’s most famous techno club and does not miss a party himself. As the European Secret Services recruits him as an undercover insider, he discovers the shocking extent of corruption in his close network – and also his personal limits.”
