Hitler­land comes to life

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY TV -

TV writer and pro­ducer Mar­shall Her­skovitz is work­ing on a drama se­ries in­spired by the book Hitler­land, writ­ten by An­drew Nagorski. Emmy win­ner Her­skovitz adapts the book and is the ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer, Dead­line.com re­ports. The se­ries is set in 1920s and ’30s Berlin, an elec­tri­fy­ing and chaotic city at the fore­front of lit­er­a­ture, art and sci­ence. The se­ries will weave ac­counts of Amer­i­can diplo­mats and cor­re­spon­dents who watched Hitler and the Nazis rise to power against a fic­tional back­drop. ‘‘Berlin dur­ing the 1920s and ’30s was so alive, so filled with prom­ise, so in­cred­i­bly mod­ern – even to­day, much of what we think of as new or avant-garde was cre­ated then,’’ says Her­skovitz, who cre­ated TV shows in­clud­ing Once & Again and such films as Love and Other Drugs and The Last Samu­rai.
