ZDFneo offers a diverse entertainment program that is aimed primarily at viewers between the ages of 25 and 49. The station focuses primarily on fiction, shows and social factual - on TV, in the ZDFmediathek and on its social media channels.
ZDF and ZDFneo have been represented at re:publica for many years as participants in panel discussions as well as exhibition booths. For this year's "online edition" we are looking forward to a media partnership.
CURIOSITY FOR NEW THINGS, FOR INNOVATION
The new living situation with lockdowns and curfews in Corona times led to increased use of streaming offers. As a series channel, ZDFneo is meeting this demand from young viewers and is constantly expanding its media library portfolio - with European co-productions, international licensed series, and new commissioned productions, including the innovative "Instant Fiction".
WITH INSTANT FICTION ON THE PULSE OF TIME
Instant fiction formats are short fictional series conceived for the media library that are produced in just a few weeks from concept to release: a major tour de force to tell the story of explosive topics of the day with emotional storytelling. At the beginning of the pandemic, ZDFneo already scored with these instant formats "Drinnen - Im Internet sind alle gleich," "Liebe. Jetzt!" and a few months later with "Liebe. Jetzt" - Christmas Edition", which was nominated for the Grimme Prize.
CAUTION LATERAL THINKERS! THE NEW INSTANT DRAMA SERIES ON ZDFneo
Now ZDFneo is showing the highly topical instant drama series "Schlafschafe". The explosive topic: Corona - conspiracy theories included. The marriage of Lars (Daniel Donskoy) and Melanie (Lisa Bitter) is put in jeopardy when the young mother suddenly believes in conspiracy theories and distances herself further and further from her husband. Lisa's only concern is that their son Janosch (Emil Brosch) remains healthy. All six parts are available in the ZDFmediathek from May 12, 10:00 am.
It is to be expected that the series will cause an uproar and attract the very conspiracy believers and Querdenker that protagonist Lars wants to expose in the series. ZDFneo is prepared for negative reactions from the network.
"SCHLAFSCHAFE" AT THE RE:PUBLICA
Don't miss: The session "Wach auf, Schlafschaf!" on the current ZDFneo instant drama series "Schlafschafe" on May 20 at 13.30 pm with Daniel Donskoy (lead actor "Schlafschafe"), Petra Tilger (editor ZDF) and Christian Schiffer (advisor to the series and co-author of the book "Angela Merkel ist Hitlers Tochter. In the Land of Conspiracy Theories"). Since the recording of the session takes place directly after the release of the series, there will be a red-hot discussion including fresh viewer reactions from the net.
