Amazon Prime Video has acquired global streaming rights to Berlin gangster drama 4 Blocks, a TNT Serie Original. The first season will become available via Amazon on October 4 in over 150 countries including the U.S., Canada and the UK. It will arrive in further majors, including Germany, France and Russia, from summer 2018. This is the first series that Turner’s TNT Serie has almost solely financed and self-distributed internationally. The six-part story centers on an Arab family in the Neukölln district of Berlin where Toni Hamady (Kida Khodr Ramadan) and his wife Kalila (Maryam Zaree) want to leave their four blocks and put criminal activities behind them. But after his brother-in-law is arrested in a raid, Toni owes it to his family to take over operational leadership of the clan. When an old friend suddenly returns to Berlin, Toni believes he has someone he can trust at his side, and the hope of a lawful future seems to be within reach once more. But it’s too late for an escape. 4 Blocks was developed by TNT Serie and Wiedemann & Berg, writers Hanno Hackfort, Bob Konrad and Richard Kropf, and director and writer Marvin Kren. It debuted at the Berlin Film Festival in February.
