About “The Wasp”:

shock! Eddie (Florian Lucas) is in prison. While his wife Manu (Lisa Wagner) continues to try to establish herself in the dart scene, he struggles with emotional survival in prison. But then he manages a deal with the judiciary: Eddie is released early for good behaviour, but he has to stay away from darts of all forms until the end of his probation.

While Manu advances in her career, Eddie hangs out illegally in the Berlin area taking part in illegal dart tournaments. But probation officer Barbell (Merritt Baker) is only waiting for him when he gets it wrong. Together with his old friend Kevin (Leonard Schecher), Eddie initially earns a lot of money in tournaments. But then debt collectors Udo (Peter Lohmeyer) and Raul (Henry Morales) set a trap for them and suddenly Eddie and Kevin owe the bookie mafia €50,000. Of course, Manu and Barbel must never find out about her, since Eddie has already promised Manu never to lie to her again. And Eddie doesn’t want to go back to the den either. But it comes as it should: Barbel and Manu catch Eddie in the act and he has to go back to prison, while Manu’s career reaches unknown heights with the support of her mental coach Ansgar (Aleksandar Jovanovic). But Eddie does not give up. Free again, the Wasp regains her will to live and tries to take revenge on Ansgar in the Senior Darts Tournament for convicting him of cheating betting. He still has no idea that Manu and Jolanda Belidorn (Katja Fellin) have also discovered Ansgar’s secret and are pursuing their own plans.


From 15 December 2022, “Die Wespe” will be shown in double episodes on Sky One every Thursday from 8:15pm. The full season will be available on demand on WOW and Sky Q starting December 15th.
