Video Interview with ZDF Enterprises’ Fred Burcksen


Fred Burcksen, the president and CEO at ZDF Enterprises, sat down with TV Europe‘s Anna Carugati to discuss highlights across the company’s genre labels.

Burcksen touches on the ZDFE.junior slate, which includes Jonathan M. Shiff’s The Bureau of Magical Things. He also speaks about such ZDFE.drama highlights as the book-based thriller The Crimson Rivers, as well as the miniseries Ku’damm 59, which recently aired on ZDF and is “a great piece of contemporary drama” featuring issues still relevant today like abuse from those who are in positions of power. In addition, Burcksen discusses the ZDFE.unscripted slate, including Big Pacific and The Story of Europe, the latter of which was the most-screened program at MIPDoc in Cannes earlier this year.
