ZDF’s Ku’damm to See Third Chapter


German broadcaster ZDF is continuing its Ku’damm series, slating the tentatively titled Ku’damm 63 as the third run.

The family saga surrounding the Schöllack dance school began with Ku’damm 56 and its sequel Ku’damm 59 and portrayed a family story about the awakening of young people in the 1950s and ’60s. ZDF is again working with UFA Fiction, under the leadership of producers Nico Hofmann and Benjamin Benedict (Generation War, Deutschland 83, Deutschland 89) and creative producer Annette Hess (Ku’damm 56) and head writer Marc Terjung.

ZDF Enterprises distributes the Ku’damm series. The first two chapters have been sold in more than 30 countries across Asia, Australia, Africa, the Americas and Europe.

Fred Burcksen, president and CEO of ZDF Enterprises, said: “Ku’damm 56 and 59 showed what it was like to live in Germany as a woman not so very long ago. The exciting and entertaining family saga brings all generations and genders to the screen. We are glad that Ku’damm 63 will now continue this successful production into the epoch of the early 1960s.”
