Ich und die Anderen Resumes Filming in Austria


Superfilm Filmproduktions and Sky Studios have restarted production on Ich und die Anderen (Me and the Others) in Austria under COVID-19-safe guidelines.

Ich und die Anderen is the first Sky Original and Sky Studios show to return to production, having completed only five of a total of 62 shoot days ahead of the lockdowns in March. David Schalko serves as showrunner on the six-part series, which stars Tom Schilling, Mavie Hörbiger, Katharina Schüttler, Sophie Rois, Martin Wuttke, Michael Maertens and Lars Eidinger. It is slated to launch next spring.

Centering a man who struggles both with himself and the world around him, Ich und die Anderen follows him as he reshuffles the cards of his existence in each episode. It asks such questions as, What happens if others suddenly behave the way we want them to?

Marcus Ammon, director of original productions at Sky Deutschland, said: “I would like to thank our producer John Lueftner, our showrunner David Schalko and their entire team, as well as all of our cast for bringing to completion with great verve and renewed enthusiasm what began so promisingly in March. We are very pleased that the Austrian Federal Government, with its Comeback for Film and Television initiative, is making it possible to go back into production.”

John Lueftner, producer at Superfilm, added: “It is a great relief to be able to work again—for us and for all filmmakers in Austria. The three-zone working concept is performing, the artistic-creative process on set can take place without any significant corona restrictions.”
