The Houseboat (March 9, Tuesday)
Together with Olli Schulz, Fynn Kliemann bought Gunter Gabriel’s old houseboat. The new format accompanies the two podcasters during the restoration of the houseboat – even in moments when Schulz and Kliemann are less in agreement. “I thought: better take everything with you, sometimes something goes wrong with Olli and me … TADA: 2 years of construction, from fits of rage to amok-like euphoria, to bankruptcy and back.”, Kliemann said on Instagram. It was “perhaps the most beautiful and at the same time the worst project” of their life – which we can all already get an insight into through the following trailer!
The four-part documentary series is to be seen as a miniseries on March 9, 2021, on Netflix. “Das Hausboot” is produced by Kliemannsland in cooperation with Studio Hamburg. “We rely on outstanding local talent, to whom we offer freedom for their authentic story, as with“ Das Hausboot ”. This creates new perspectives and constellations, even across genre boundaries, ”DWDL.de quotes Jennifer Mival, manager of the Unscripted & Doc Series.
StarBeam (March 9, Tuesday)
Netflix kiddie series StarBeam is about a little girl superhero who routinely saves her city from villains with remarkably unambitious schemes like, I dunno, depriving all local residents of sporks or something. Aimed at preschoolers, the show is from one of the executive producers of Preacher and the head writer for Doc McStuffins, so it has some sort of TV cred, as puffy PR materials love to point out. Anyhow, does StarBeam have the oomph to stride alongside gargantuan franchises such as Paw Patrol and PJ Masks, or is it just another bit of kiddie piffle?
Dealer (March 10, Wednesday)
Adapted from the 2017 film, Dealer is a twist on the found-footage genre. This gritty French series centres around music director Franck (Sébastien Houbani) and his subject, an aspiring hip-hop artist named Tony (Abderamane Diakhite). When Tony invites Franck into his neighbourhood to film a new music clip, Franck realises that the charming rap star is not just fabricating a “gangster” image: Tony is also a real-life drug dealer. With Franck documenting every encounter, he quickly gets caught up in the violent gang warfare, getting an up-close-and-personal look at the less than glamorous side of the drug trade.
The One (March 12, Friday)

It also sends those optimistic participants into the world of the unknown, uniting with strangers who have dark secrets and may not have their best interests at heart.
