June 5, 2024

SkyShowtime has announced its latest commissioned original programming project in Poland – Langer. This is the second project in Poland announced by SkyShowtime in recent months, following the news that SkyShowtime Original Series Śleboda started filming in April.

The announcement was made by SkyShowtime Chief Content Officer Kai Finke during a panel discussion at industry event Content Warsaw, where he shared details about the service’s entertainment line-up.

Langer, a six-part thriller starring Jakub Gierszał as Piotr Langer, tells a story of a young, ambitious businessman who inherited a financial holding from his tragically deceased father. In his free time, Piotr indulges in his long-time passion – he is an elusive serial killer who has evaded prosecutors for years.

SkyShowtime Original series Langer is an adaptation of a novel by bestselling author Remigiusz Mróz. The series will be produced by Violetta Furmaniuk-Zaorska and directed by Łukasz Palkowski.

Langer will become a key part of SkyShowtime’s expansion into original programming together with recently announced co-produced SkyShowtime Original Documentary Schmeichel a two-part documentary about a giant of football – Danish goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel, and aforementioned crime series Śleboda starring Maria Dębska, Maciej Musiał and Piotr Pacek.

SkyShowtime subscribers can also look forward to box office hits such as Bob Marley: One Love, Mean Girls, Migration and The Holdovers.

Finke commented: SkyShowtime continues to increase its portfolio of original programming for local audiences. Our latest Polish commission – SkyShowtime Original Series Langer – will be a six-part thriller based on the novel by the bestselling author Remigiusz Mróz. We are excited to expand our local programming offering with such a strong and captivating story and the fantastic Jakub Gierszał at the helm.”
