Short list German Television Award

On 21, Feb 2017 | In General | By Jan Tenhaven

Today the program Make Love has been nominated for the German Television Award 2017 (Deutscher Fernsehpreis). For the production of the first season, I had been involved as a Director of Editing plus I did a tiny bit of development, but most of the honour goes to my fantastic colleagues Tristan Ferland Milewski (Director) and Christian Beetz (Producer) who worked very hard to make this fresh and innovative new format a success.

The press had been full of praise from the very beginning: “Truly good.” (DIE ZEIT),  “Astonishing, not all awkward but authentic and informative” (Focus).
