On the Geektown Radio podcast this week we have all the usual tv news and UK tv premiere date information, plus we have an exclusive chat with the Cinematographer for ‘Berlin Station’ & ‘Counterpart’, Hagen Bogdanski.

Hagen Bogdanski is a German-born and based cinematographer, whose previous work includes the movies 'Young Victoria', 'The Life Of Others' and a whole host of German language tv shows and films. His most recent film project saw him work with 'Sons Of Anarchy's' Charlie Hunnam and 'Mr. Robot’s' Rami Malek on the acclaimed period thriller 'Papillion'.

Over on the tv side, he has been working as the cinematographer for sci-fi drama 'Counterpart' starring JK Simmons, which comes to STARZPlay at the end of September in the UK, and cinematographer & director on 'Berlin Station', which is coming to More4 later this Autumn.

From acclaimed author Olen Steinhauer (‘The Tourist’, ‘All The Old Knives’) ‘Berlin Station’ is a contemporary spy drama that follows the activities of CIA operatives on a global stage amid investigations of moles, terrorists, corrupt politicians and more. Transitioning from his job as a CIA analyst in the US, cerebral officer Daniel Miller’s (Richard Armitage – ‘Hannibal’, ‘Strike Back’, ‘The Hobbit’) new mission puts him undercover at the agency’s Berlin branch, tasked with sorting out messy cases involving damaging leaks, whistle-blowers, terrorism and more. Mentored by jaded veteran officer Hector DeJean (Rhys Ifans – ‘Snowden’, ‘Elementary’) Daniel learns the disorderly world of fieldwork means dealing with deception, danger and moral compromises. As he dives deeper into the German capital’s hall of mirrors and discovers conspiracies that lead back to Washington, D.C., he wonders if anyone can ever be the same after a posting to Berlin.
