Constantin takes on TV

Unit sets focus on sitcoms, series, minis

BERLIN – Constantin Film has set up Constantin Television to focus on sitcoms, series and miniseries.

New unit will consolidate Constantin’s TV biz, including production of Sat 1’s “Typisch Sophie” and “Hausmeister Krause,” as well as develop and acquire new fiction and formats.

“Constantin Television is in an excellent position to exploit synergy benefits thanks to close ties to the parent company,” said Martin Moszkowicz, production director at Constantin Film.

Moszkowicz added that many Constantin films could be spun off onto the small screen, like its hit sitcom “Bewegte Maenner,” a TV adaptation of its bigscreen comedy “Der bewegte Mann” (“Maybe, Maybe Not”).

Constantin also owns Constantin Entertainment, another TV division focusing on reality formats, which it acquired from the bankrupt Kirch Media in 2004.

Company has appointed Robin von der Leyen and Kerstin Schmidbauer as the shingle’s managing director and producer, respectively.

Von der Leyen has been with Constantin since 1999, most recently focusing on the acquisition, development and funding of films as well as managing a number of Constantin TV projects.

Schmidbauer, a former producer at Berlin-based TV production outfit Teamworx, worked at Munich-based Sperl Film.
