‘Euphoria’ Set for German Adaptation

“Euphoria” will have a German adaptation, Variety can reveal.

Germany’s Zeitsprung Pictures (“Lieber Thomas”) has acquired the program option from production and distribution company ADD Content, which represents the international rights to the format and series.

“Euphoria” is an Israeli original created by Ron Leshem and Daphna Levin. The show follows a group of high school students who navigate friendship and love while also battling drugs, sex, trauma, and social media.

The original version was produced by Tedy Productions and broadcast on Israeli broadcaster HOT. An American adaptation of the HBO show, starring Zendaya (pictured above), Jacob Elordi, and Sydney Sweeney, soon followed and has since become a huge hit, with the series set to return for a third season.

The German adaptation has already tapped writers Jonas Lindt (“Druck”) and Paulina Lorenz (“Druck”) to work on the project.

“We are happy that the tremendous success of ‘Euphoria’ continues to resonate with the world and we are excited about this new collaboration,” broadcaster HOT said. “We will continue to create quality content that makes Israel proud across audiences and across borders.”

Michael Souvignier, CEO of Zeitsprung Pictures, and producer Lennart Pohlig said: “‘Euphoria’ is one of the biggest and most successful IPs and we are very pleased to develop the story together for a German adaptation of this unique coming-of-age series. “. with noted writers Jonas Lindt and Paulina Lorenz. We strongly believe that the universal issues facing Generation Z, such as identity, mental illness, addiction and sexuality, which they navigate while under constant great pressure to succeed and perform, must be told in a very specific local way, in this case from the perspective of young German adolescents”.

Hadas Mozes Lichtenstein, founder of ADD Content, added: “From the beginning we recognized that ‘Euphoria’ is a special series that will resonate well beyond the Israeli market, tapping into the experiences of young people in a real way, which is underscored by the response to HBO’s gritty and compelling remake. Though stark and often disturbing, the show’s themes and storylines strike a chord with teen audiences in many markets around the world. We are looking forward to seeing how the German version brings another perspective to young audiences.”
