Granada Germany has appointed Gerda Mueller to develop the drama project as full-time senior producer.

Mueller recently exec produced the Granada Germany crime drama “Der Letzte Bulle” for the Sat.1 web.

“In the past three years, there has been a significant recovery for scripted formats, especially among homegrown sitcoms and series, which have been receiving superb ratings,” said Granada Germany’s managing director Jan Kromschroeder.
