The most popular show on Netflix Germany is not the sci-fi thriller ‘Dark’ that has garnered a massive fan following across the globe instead the most popular German show is a coming of age comedy drama ‘How To Sell Drugs Online (Fast)’.
Don’t worry, the show doesn’t actually teach you how to do sell drugs instead it follows high school outcast Moritz Zimmermann and his friend Lenny Sander who are on a quest to re-ignite the former’s love for his ex-girlfriend Lisa Novak by selling ecstasy online. A totally normal way to win a girl’s affection, right?
What’s even more surprising is that the show is inspired by a true story of one Maximilian S. who was a tech-savy 18 year old and managed to earn millions of euros by selling drugs from his childhood bedroom before being caught in 2015. In fact he even showed up on the production set of the show when he learned of the TV series being made and gave plenty of tips to the creators to get the nuances right. Talk about being helpful!
‘How To Sell Drugs Online (Fast)’ stars Maximilian Mundt (Morris), Danilo Kamber (Lenny), Anna Lena Klenke (Lisa), Damian Hardung and Luna Baptise Schaller among others. It has received The Bambi Award, a German Television Award, for Best Comedy Series this year as well!
The show currently airs six episodes from season one and has been renewed for a second season which will premiere on July 21st, 2020 on Netflix.
