Netflix has set the global premiere date for Woman of the Dead, a new German-language revenge thriller series. Check out the English-subtitled trailer.
Adapted from Bernhard Aichner‘s best-selling novel Totenfrau, the first title in his “Totenfrau” trilogy, Woman of the Dead (Totenfrau) stars Anna Maria Mühe (Bauhaus – A New Era, Dogs of Berlin) as Brunhilde Blum, a loving wife and mother of two young children. Blum lives with her family in a popular ski resort, where she owns a funeral home, works as the undertaker, and deals with death on a daily basis.
But when it’s her husband who dies, Blum is shaken to her core. Killed in front of her eyes, he was the victim of a hit and run. Only it wasn’t an accident as she had originally thought. When Blum realizes that her husband was murdered because he was in the process of uncovering terrible secrets, she sets out on a quest for revenge. But soon after starting her pursuit of the murderers, Blum becomes increasingly cornered, is forced to face her own harrowing past, and turns from being the predator to the prey.
