TV Series ‘Bad Banks’: Smart and Intriguing

Bad Banks is an intriguing German-Luxembourgish TV series about young ambitious bankers trying to make in the modern cut throat world of German banking and high finance.

The series takes place mainly in Frankfurt and Berlin and there are some nice scenes in each city. The star of the series is 25-year old Paula Beer who does an excellent job portraying an intelligent young banker who will do anything it takes to make it in a highly competitive male-dominated environment. Luxembourgish actress Désirée Nosbusch plays an attractive senior banker of equal cunning and ambition.

The pace is fast and dialogue is smart. The Guardian correctly noted that a “defiant amorality pervades the whole business” depicted in the series.

Bad Banks, which is in its second season, is available in the United States on Hulu.
