‘Your Honor’: First Look At Sebastian Koch & Paula Beer In Trailer For German Adaptation of Hit Series

Your Honor

EXCLUSIVE: Here’s a good-looking first English-language trailer for the German adaptation of hit series Your Honor.

Leading German actors Sebastian Koch (The Lives Of Others) and Paula Beer (Frantz) star in the series, which is loosely based on the often-adapted Israeli original.

The drama charts the story of an incorruptible judge who has spent his career fighting organized crime. Tables are turned when his teenage son is implicated in a hit-and-run case, seriously injuring the son of an arrested crime boss. Bryan Cranston recently starred in the U.S. version for Showtime.

Also starring are Tobias Moretti (Bad Banks), Ursula Strauss (Hotel Sacher), Sascha Geršak (Bad Banks), Taddeo Kufus (1917), Lena Kalisch (Unorthodox), and Rainer Bock (Atlas).

The German version, titled Euer Ehren, heralds from SquareOne Productions, in co-production with Vienna’s Mona Film, ARD/Degeto, and Austrian Pubcaster ORF. David Nawrath (Atlas) directs all six episodes and also serves as the series co-writer alongside David Marian Möhring. Shooting took place in Vienna, Innsbruck, and surroundings.

The returnable six-episode thriller premieres in Germany on April 2nd for seven days via streaming followed by the linear broadcast on April 9 and 10 on public broadcaster ARD Degeto and Austrian broadcaster ORF.

Euer Ehren is produced by Al Munteanu for SquareOne Productions, the production arm of the Munich-based distributor, with Thomas Hroch and Gerald Podgornig overseeing for Mona Film. The Israeli original was created by Ron Ninio and Shlomo Mashiach and produced by Ram Landers at Koda Communications and yes Studios.

Sebastian Koch commented: “Judge Jacobi’s actions are for me in many ways a mirror of our society, I would almost say a reflection of the present world situation. He stumbles from one catastrophe into the next, without any emergency brake in sight purely because he is driven by the infinite love for his son. This is the main impetus for this story. Being personally forced to confront a situation that is actually hopeless.”

SquareOne Productions’ Italian adaptation of the series — with co-production partner Indiana and Italy’s public broadcaster RAI — premiered this month in Italy.
