The upcoming series Where’s Wanda? is a dark comedy that follows parents searching for their missing daughter who discover that behind closed doors, none of their neighbors are who they pretend to be.

It will be the first Apple TV+ series in German.

Where’s Wanda? takes Apple TV+ to Deutschland

Going international is a way around the ongoing writers’ and actors’ strikes in the United States. Apple did something like this before, bringing in the Israel-made series Tehran when COVID hindered production in the United States. And Where’s Wanda? is in German and produced by UFA Fiction.

It stars Emmy nominee Heike Makatsch (Love Actually, Resident Evil), Axel Stein, Lea Drinda and Leo Simon.

The official preview from Apple TV+ says:

“How far would you go to save your child? For Carlotta (Makatsch) and Dedo (Stein), the answer is clear. Until recently they were a normal family, but after waiting in vain for the police to bring back their 17-year-old daughter Wanda (Drinda), who disappeared months ago without a trace, they are now taking matters into their own hands. With the help of their tech-savvy son Ole (Simon), who helps them obtain surveillance devices, they disguise themselves as employees of an electrical company and bug first their neighborhood and then half their suburb, finding out that behind closed doors none of their neighbors are who they pretend to be.”

A release date for Where’s Wanda? on Apple’s streaming service was not announced today. All we know is it’s “coming soon.”

Apple TV+ is international

Apple TV+ isn’t just for Americans. While much of its content is in English, there are exceptions. Dr. Brain is in Korean, Drops of God is in French, Japanese and English while Pachinko is also told in three languages: Korean, Japanese and English.

Watch on Apple TV
