Berlin, July 14, 2022 – Kleo Straub (Jella Haase) used to conduct missions as a Stasi assassin, but now she herself is the target. After serving time for a crime she didn’t commit, she returns after the fall of the Berlin Wall to find out who is responsible for destroying her life. Her far from silent vendetta causes ripples, and police officer Sven (Dimitrij Schaad) senses the case of his life is about to unfold. But he’s the least of her worries, as another assassin (Vincent Redetzki) is set on her tail with orders “right from the top”. While the conspirators pile up the bodies, the air is getting thinner for Kleo – who can she still trust?

The series KLEO is a literally explosive mix of action, comedy, drama and thriller which, just like its protagonist, can’t be pigeonholed. The concept and screenplay are created by the HaRiBo team of writers (Para – We Are King, 4 Blocks) made up of Hanno Hackfort, Richard Kropf and Bob Konrad, who are also showrunners, alongside Elena Senft. Viviane Andereggen(Defamed, The Three Exclamation Marks) and Jano Ben Chaabane(Blind ermittelt - Lebendig begraben [Investigating Blind – Buried Alive], Mapa) direct the series.

From August 19, Jella Haase, who has just won her first German Film Award for Best Supporting Actress, takes us with her on her rollercoaster of a revenge plan. Are you ready? Born ready!

About KLEO

1987: Top East-German spy Kleo kills a businessman in West Berlin while on a mission with a secret Stasi commando. Not long after, she’s arrested by the Stasi on spurious claims and denounced by everyone she knows, even her own grandfather. After two years in jail, the Berlin Wall falls, and Kleo is suddenly free. She soon finds out that the conspiracy against her is much bigger than she could have imagined, and an ominous red suitcase seems to be the missing puzzle piece. Kleo sets off on a crusade for revenge, on a hunt that leads her through anarchistic Berlin, improvised electro clubs and Majorcan fincas, and finally into the Atacama Desert. All the while, she’s followed by West-Berlin police officer Sven, who sees the case of his life unfolding before him.
