The new series is currently being developed by Tariq Jalil’s Intrigue Entertainment and CBS Studios. The agreement is overseen by Red Arrow.
Red Arrow Studios International’s German drama series "Einstein" has been announced to be back under development with CBS. “We are delighted that Einstein is back in development at CBS with such a talented team,” Joel Denton, Acting President at Red Arrow Studios International, said. “The changes to the format for a US audience promise to reveal new layers in the show, and we are excited about this new series moving forward.”
The new development is written and executive produced by Lauren Gussis, the creator of Insatiable, and executive produced by American Gothic creator Corinne Brinkerhoff. The deal is managed for Red Arrow Studios International by Shirley Bowers, VP Sales & Acquisitions for North America, Australia, and New Zealand. Red Arrow sold the German series to over 100 territories, and handles worldwide distribution of the format and finished tape.
"Einstein" was introduced by Tariq Jalil’s Intrigue Entertainment, and CBS Studios, with Lauren Gussis, Corinne Brinkerhoff, Green Ribbon's Tiffany Grant, Lucas Carter, Joe Wiggins of Intrigue Entertainment, and Joel Denton and Shirley Bowers of Red Arrow Studios International serving as executive producers. The original Zeitsprung Pictures production of "Einstein" was written by Martin Ritzenhoff and Matthias Dinter based on their 2015 TV movie, starring Tom Beck, and Alarm for Cobra 11.
Inspired by the Germand hit series on SAT.1 in Germany over 3 seasons produced by Zeitsprung Pictures, the CBS series tells the story of a brilliant young physics professor who is the secret, illegitimate great-grandchild of Albert Einstein. The series oversees a Boston homicide detective to help solve one of the city's most puzzling crimes within a police institution that's still present today.
