Not with the reality confronting: Deutsche TV-series, ignore Corona

In reality, the Virus rages on, but on the TV screen a corona reigns free world: well-Known German series want to ignore the Corona-crisis until Further notice, consistently, as a survey of the German press Agency revealed.

This applies to the "Rosenheim-Cops" in Bavaria, as well as the "urban area" in the high North, for "Good times, bad times" (GZSZ), and "storm of love" as well as "Berlin - Tag & Nacht". "In terms of content, we do not address the Corona current," according to a spokesperson for the Ufa, on request. The Ufa, for example, produces the soap Opera-duration burner "Among Us" and "GZSZ", where straight to series character, Alexander, is mourned - with a lot of distance, and without the comforting hugs.

"viewers behave ekapistisch"

A case is not – quite the contrary. All requested series want to exactly procedures: pandemic? What Is The Pandemic? The management of "Studio Hamburg", produced by the Hamburg classic, "big city area" and the Telenovela "Red roses", informs, "that the Covid-19 pandemic will play no role in the screenplays and stories" and called reasons: "first, viewers eskapist behave and not want to be confronted in fictional formats with the reality," it says. "Secondly, a series of repertoire are capable of, that is, they are used as replicates to other transmission places in a few years, if – hopefully – no Corona more."

On the rotation of the Corona has great impact. Strict hygiene plans were drawn up, there must be a lot of distance between the actors. In the case of the "Rosenheim-Cops" was even rebuilt the Set. And in some series, the samples with masks instead of find. But then turned without. In the final result, you should not see the masks, the shape of reality, in the meantime, the city's image.

"A lot of positive reactions from viewers on the net encourage us in this decision."

RTLzwei leads, especially for very practical reasons why the Virus is also in the "Berlin - day & night" or "Cologne 50667", shows that are "Reality-Soaps", do not play a role: In the case of production heats of up to eight weeks is simply not possible. From the table, the topic is not the case, but stressed a spokesman. "So we assist with the "Cologne 50667", for example, the Bavarian state Ministry for health and care in the elucidation of the Corona pandemic. Away from the series content, but on all relevant platforms and with great success.“

Bavaria Fiction, the "produce The Rosenheim-Cops" and "storm of love", share: "A pandemic does not fit the content to the alignment of the two series." Therefore, Corona is not taking place there. "'Storm of love' is a well-told fairy tale; 'The Rosenheim-Cops' set with wit and charm in front of the picturesque backdrop of the Alpine foothills to the villains of the craft." In both series, the viewers should switch off "from everyday life and into a fictional world, the Worries and troubles of the real world will stay outside."

"We realize that social distance and masks are increasingly becoming a part of our everyday life, so that fictional offerings have to be careful that you are not seen by the audience as unrealistic."

The "Linden street" there is no more holding

In the case of the series "Um Himmels Willen", "The mountain doctor" and "The mountain rescuers", all of which are produced by the company's ndf, the books simply already finished, and thus there is no more space for Corona was, as managing Director Matthias Walther says. Whether the stories should continue to be corona-free, leaves it open. "Maybe the Whole one day is a topic that depends on the sure of, the further development of this pandemic."

The Hamburg-based media scholar Joan K. Bleicher sees a lack of flexibility, the structure is due to: "series to create a closed fictional narrative worlds in which references to current events little space.
