23. Skylines

Premiere date: Sept. 27

Don’t be so quick to write off a foreign TV show on Netflix. You are missing out on great content if you tend to skip these. It’s the streaming service’s best-kept secret. Most are hidden gems waiting to be discovered, and we have a feeling Skylines is the next big thing. Here’s why you need to consider adding this German original to your to-watch TV list this fall!

For starters, I’d like to argue that romcoms are not what Netflix does best, it’s actually crime-dramas! There are plenty to select from on Netflix! From works of fiction to series based on true stories, and everything in-between, Netflix has them all.

Skylines is a German crime-drama that centers around on a young music producer, Jinn (Edin Hasanovic), in Frankfurt, Germany, who reluctantly becomes entangled in the world of organized crime. Staying on top of the business, especially with drugs, is going to prove to be more complicated and deadlier than Jinn imagined.

When Jinn first signs on to the label Skyline Records, everything appears fine, but events quickly turn for him when the label owner’s brother returns to claim his share of the business. Jinn soon realizes Skyline Records is where music and drugs collide. Will he put his talent and love for hip-hop on the side to cash in on the corrupt system?

The series stars Peri Baumeister, Sahin Erylmaz, Murathan Musle, Lisa Maria Potthoff among others. The first season will consist of six episodes that’ll run approximately 40 minutes each.  If you binged Money Heist too quickly and are missing your dose of crime drama, watch Skylines!
