DARK (2017 – 2020)

Where to watch: Netflix

Four different families – Kahnwald, Nielsen, Doppler, and Tiedemann – live in Winden, a seemingly quiet little German town.

Family secrets begin to emerge as police investigate the disappearances and soon realize a connection to equally dark events of the past.

ELITE (2018 – PRESENT)

Where to watch: Netflix

‘Elite’ accompanies everyday life in Las Encinas, the best and most exclusive school in Spain, attended only by children from wealthy and influential families. Everything begins to change when three students from the public school are transferred there following an earthquake that destroyed their old school. Christian (Miguel Herrán), Nadia (Mina El Hammani) and Samuel (Itzan Escamilla) consider themselves lucky for change, but quickly become the targets of an overwhelming class difference. Students like Marina (Maria Pedraza), Lu (Danna Paola) and Polo (Álvaro Rico), used to doing everything as they please, will make the stay for newcomers even more difficult. And it is not only the social conditions that clash: the routine of Las Encinas is, in fact, marked by tensions, intrigues and many conflicting emotions. This contrast between the underprivileged and the rich culminates in a mysterious murder. It remains to be seen: who is behind the crime? Is the killer one of the novices? Or is there something darker lurking in the hallways?
