New Hires for Sky Studios Deutschland


Sky Studios has made two new appointments to its German team as it looks to bolster investment in scripted original productions across German-speaking Europe.

Julia Rappold has been tapped as senior executive producer, joining full-time this October. Rappold will be responsible for the production, execution and delivery of Sky Studios’ scripted original slate across Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Prior to joining Sky Studios, Rappold worked as a producer at Lieblingsfilm and began her career at German Films before joining FFF Bayern in 2006.

Stella Flicker, meanwhile, takes on the role of executive producer. Before joining Sky Studios, Flicker worked as a producer at Letterbox Filmproduktion and studied film production in Hamburg. At Sky Studios Deutschland, Flicker will work across indie-commissioned projects as well as projects developed and produced in-house.

Tobias Rosen, VP of Sky Studios Deutschland, said: “As we look to expand the range of our slate from tentpole juggernaut series like Das Boot to contemporary German series like KraNK Berlin and Garten Eden, I couldn’t be more excited to welcome Julia and Stella to Sky Studios. Both will be great partners to the creative community across Germany as we seek to produce more unmissable TV for Sky’s customers across Germany, Austria and Switzerland, as well as viewers across the world.”

Rappold said: “Joining Sky Studios is an exciting opportunity. The captivating German Sky Originals, such as Der Pass, Babylon Berlin and Die Ibiza Affäre have demonstrated the level of quality and creativity that the company is known for. Working alongside this fantastic team and collaborating with new creative minds to develop and produce the next exciting series from Germany is something I’m truly looking forward to.”

Flicker said: “I’m thrilled to be working at Sky Studios, and I’m excited about the range of projects we currently have on our slate. I look forward to bringing in new ideas and perspectives and shining further light on unheard voices and untold stories while creating unmissable TV.”
