High-quality, creative and varied: This is what characterises the productions, projects and developments from Studio.TV.Film. This successful production company located in Berlin has achieved an excellent reputation since 1969 – especially in the sector of children’s programmes. In 2008, Studio.TV.Film extended its business areas: since then, in addition to children’s programmes, meaningful fiction and non-fiction formats have been produced under one roof.
Studio.TV.Film is the productive home of successful and contextually relevant brands for German children’s television. Since 1980, the company has produced the ZDF series Löwenzahn, winner of countless awards and a symbol for a playful and entertaining way to impart knowledge. In 1988, this was joined by the poetic and humorous series Siebenstein, another long-running show. A junk shop is the setting for exciting and fantastic stories with the puppets Rudi and Koffer, who move freely around the room. Beutolomäus, the KiKa Christmas brand, enjoyed sensational success with viewers from 2005 until 2012, with the series and TV movies produced by Studio.TV.Film. In addition to these, with the pre-school programme KiKANiNCHEN, an innovative pre-school format was born in 2009, representing a combination of CGI production, live action and animation. Since 2013, the programme Löwenzähnchen has portrayed another new format manufactured for the ZDF, successfully aimed at inquiring pre-school children. Many more children’s films and series such as Der verzauberte Otter, Fortsetzung folgt and Die Klimaretter complete the portfolio.
Studio.TV.Film has produced three high-quality and much-praised fairy tales for MDR/ARD (Brüderchen und Schwesterchen, Die kluge Bauerntochter and Die zertanzten Schuhe) In 2016 a further addition to this ARD fairytale series followed with Das singende, klingende Bäumchen (for RBB, SR and Degeto).
For DEGETO a 90-minute TV movie was created for the Friday evening slot.
For 2017 new fiction productions are in preparation – among others – for ARD Tatort (RBB) as well as for the ZDF Sunday evening series (Herzkino).
In the business sector Non-Fiction, Studio.TV.Film produces documentary films, mainly with a cultural or historical content and also about classical music. For many years, the company made ARTE Lounge from a club in Berlin. Many well regarded series were also created for 3sat (Bewegte Republik Deutschland and Von Dada bis Gaga), and moreover, documentaries such as Sergiu Celibidache – Feuerkopf und Philosoph (ZDF/3sat), Richard Strauss und seine Heldinnen (SRF). Since 2013, Pufpaff’s Happy Hour has been a part of the Cabaret and Comedy Offensive on 3sat.
