1899 is created and produced by Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, who are both serving as showrunners. Friese is also writing the series, while Odar is the director.

“The eight episodes follow the mysterious circumstances around the voyage of an immigrant ship from Europe to New York,” reads the synopsis. “The passengers, all of different backgrounds and nationalities, are united by their hopes and dreams for a new century and their future abroad. When they discover a second ship adrift on the open sea that had gone missing for months, their journey takes an unexpected turn. What they find on board will turn their passage to the promised land into a nightmare-like riddle, connecting each of the passenger’s pasts through a web of secrets.”
Odar and Friese once again join forces with exceptional talent behind the camera known from the Dark universe, such as director of photography Nikolaus Summerer, set designer Udo Kramer, hair & make up designer Christina Wagner and composer Ben Frost. They are also working with new collaborators such as casting director Lucy Bevan, Oscar nominated costume designer Bina Daigeler, and Framestore’s integrated visualization, virtual production, and VFX teams supervised by Christian Kaestner.
