The recordings should now be in the can, because according to the broadcaster, the next episode of the popular ZDF comedy series "Family Bundschuh" was shot until "mid-November 2022 in Berlin and Brandenburg".
The eighth episode has the working title "Bundschuh versus Bundschuh" and this time Gundula and Gerald Bundschuh - embodied by Andrea Sawatzki (59) and Axel Milberg (66) since the first episode - are about the mayor's office.
Actually, Gundula Bundschuh just wanted to get rolls, which can be a challenge in the country. But in the end she is up against her husband Gerald for mayor in the village that has recently become the new home of the Bundschuhs - Bundschuh against Bundschuh.
Based on the screenplay by Stefan Kuhlmann (58), Franziska Meyer Price (60) is directing. Kuhlmann penned the episode "Family Bundschuh - It's not quieter somewhere else" (2021). Franziska Meyer Price directs her first "Bundschuh" film. The Emmy and Grimme award winner and multiple comedy award winner previously directed the successful series "Die Nesthocker - Familie zuschenken" (2000), "Berlin, Berlin" (2001-2004) and "Doctor's Diary" (2009-2011).
The "Bundschuh family" series started with "Take a deep breath, the family is coming", which was broadcast shortly before Christmas 2015. The screenplay by Mathias Klaschka (52) is based on the novel of the same name by actress and author Andrea Sawatzki, which was published by Piper Verlag in 2013.
A broadcast date for "Family Bundschuh - Bundschuh versus Bundschuh" has not yet been set.
