Amazon’s new crime drama set in Germany’s underground techno scene is now streaming
Amazon studios have released a new drama series titled Beat. The show follows promoter Robert “Beat” Schlag, who embodies the essence of the deepest depths of Berlin’s underground techno scene.
After Beat is recruited by the European Secret Services for his connections, he discovers how dirty the floor is when the lights come up. The show, which is entirely in German, appears to aim to be an honorable depiction of the Berlin underground, while adding all the gunfire and suspense viewers have become accustomed in today’s streaming series.
According to Amazon Prime Video’s description, “Beat works as a promoter in Berlin’s most famous techno club and does not miss a party himself.” The promoter is forced to push his mental and physical limits to expose a human-organ trafficking ring and the true extent of corruption in his immediate network.
As of November 9, the first season of Beat is available for free to Amazon Prime members.
