Review of "You Are Wanted" 3/22/17 by Suzanne
Watch the first season online on Amazon

This is a German show, dubbed in English. A family man, Lukas Franke (Matthias Schweighöfer), is hacked and his life is turned upside down. A terrorist commits some attacks and makes it look like Franke is the person responsible. He tries to solve the problem on his own, but things get worse. The police suspect him, and then his family and friends also start to suspect him, no matter how much he protests his innocence.

It's one of those paranoid thrillers that probably owes a lot to "24." Franke gets involved with a woman, Lena Arandt, who was also targeted, so they work together to try to find out what's going on. The trail leads to the federal government police. It does move along quickly and is somewhat compelling. The main character is likable, but he acts kind of dumb. I hope it gets better.


Amazon will launch its first German series, You Are Wanted, to Prime members globally. Produced by and starring Matthias Schweighöfer, You Are Wanted will not only launch in Germany and Austria, but across more than 200 countries and territories on six continents; Amazon will become the first video streaming service to launch a German original series this wide. All six episodes will be available with dubbing in English, French, Italian and Spanish. Additionally, subtitles will be available in Portuguese, Hindi and Japanese. You Are Wanted will be available in Germany and Austria on Friday, March 17. Launch dates for rest of world will be announced soon. Besides the leading actor, director and producer Matthias Schweighöfer, You Are Wanted casts notable German actors like Alexandra Maria Lara (Vier gegen die Bank, Der Untergang), Karoline Herfurth (Fack ju Göhte, Das Parfum - Die Geschichte eines Mörders), and Tom Beck (Einstein). You Are Wanted tells the story of Lukas Franke (Schweighöfer), a young hotel manager and father who is brutally torn out of his everyday life when his personal data is hacked and he finds the story of his life beginning to be rewritten. As strange news continues to emerge, Lukas finds his digital identity continuously manipulated, arousing the suspicion of the German Federal Criminal Office (BKA), who accuse him of being a member of a terrorist organization. Even his wife (Alexandra Maria Lara) begins to doubt him. When his child is threatened, it is obvious to Lukas that he has to fight back. He allies with Lena Arandt (Karoline Herfurth), who is also a victim of the hackers. With her help he tries to find them and hunt them down. Who is behind the conspiracy? Why was he targeted? Lukas is forced to fight back, find the perpetrators, prove his innocence and get back his old life.
