The complete first season of the critically acclaimed spy series “Berlin Station” arrives on Digital HD Tuesday Feb. 21, from Paramount Home Media Distribution. The series depicts the activity of a CIA office on a global stage in the midst of an investigation into a now-famous whistleblower.
Daniel Miller (Richard Armitage, “Hannibal”) is a new arrival at Berlin’s CIA station who is on a clandestine mission to uncover the source of the Thomas Shaw leaks. Richard Jenkins (“Olive Kitteridge”) stars as Steven Frost, the head of the station, who carries the burden of his own secrets; Michelle Forbes (“The Killing”) stars as Valerie Edwards, the no-nonsense Internal Branch Chief; Rhys Ifans (“Snowden”) stars as Hector DeJean, a dark, charming and tenacious case officer and old friend of Daniel; Leland Orser (“Ray Donovan”) stars as Robert Kirsch, a devoted and successful deputy chief; and Tamlyn Tomita (“Resurrection”) stars as Sandra Abe, the assistant to Frost and a quiet presence lording over the efficient operation of the station.
“Berlin Station” Season One aired on premium TV network EPIX last fall and has already been renewed for a second season that is set to air sometime this year. The show is produced by Paramount Television and Anonymous Content and created by New York Times best-selling author Olen Steinhauer (“The Tourist”) who also serves as executive producer. Bradford Winters (“The Americans”) is the showrunner and an executive producer. Academy Award winner Eric Roth (“House of Cards”) and Steve Golin, Kerry Kohansky-Roberts, Keith Redmon and Luke Rivett from Anonymous Content also serve as executive producers.
