You Are Wanted PosterLast year Amazon announced the development of their first German original series, You Are Wanted, for its Prime Video streaming service, and while it wasn’t clear at the time whether it would make its way outside of the German region, the company announced it will now be releasing the series globally to 200 countries, including the U.S., on March 17.

Featuring one of Germany’s most popular actors, Matthias Schweighofer, You Are Wanted centers the story around his life crumbling to pieces after a hacker steals his identity and lands him in the custody of police who are accusing him of being part of a terrorist group.

You Are Wanted also stars some other familiar German names, Downfall’s Alexandra Maria Lara and Karoline Herfurth from Perfume: Story of a Murderer. Schweighofer is also directing the series.

 

When it is released on March 17, Amazon Prime members will have the option of watching You Are Wanted in its original form with subtitles or an English dubbed version.
