German Version of Plan B in the Works for ZDF


The Canadian drama Plan B is getting a local treatment in Germany for ZDF, marking the fourth adaptation of the series.

Ingrid Kaltenegger and Mika Kallwass are adapting the series, starring Katja Riemann and Hannah Schiller. Directors are Isa Prahl and Eoin Moore.

The German version is produced by Sabine de Mardt and Andreas Bareiss for Gaumont Germany.

Remakes were produced in France (TF1), Belgium (STREAMZ) and English Canada (CBC). The Québécois original, from KOTV, is in development for season five for Radio-Canada.

Barbara Vallant of aromaTV, who brokered the deal on behalf of KOTV, said: “This masterpiece series is created by two of the most in-demand authors in Québec. A first Québecois adaptation for ZDF and hopefully the first of many to come!”
