Chameleon, an eight part series, is set in the murky and mysterious world of corporate lobbying and follows Max ‘The Chameleon,’ a calculated and smooth operator who begins to question himself after he meets Vallery, a new, mysterious lobbyist, who both attracts and repels him at the same time.
Elke Walthelm, program director at Sky Deutschland, said: “Our aim is to offer top-class in-house productions in an attractive mix across a variety of genres for a broader target group. That is why we are massively increasing our investment in self-produced series. We want to offer our viewers the best, most exciting programmes. In addition to the productions presented today, we have many other great things in the pipeline. Our plans for Sky Originals are ambitious, and overall we are doubling our group-wide investment in original content by 2024. Next year we will have 60 Sky Originals in our plan, including our own series from the UK and Italy.”
