    About W&B Television GmbH & Co. KG

    Already back in high school, Max Wiedemann and Quirin Berg shared their passion for film. A few years later, while still students at the University of Television and Film in Munich, they founded Wiedemann & Berg Film. Since 2003 both have been sole shareholders and managing directors.

    In 2010, W&B Television (Wiedemann & Berg Television) was founded as a joint venture with EndemolShine.

    The combination of cinema and TV, the focus on high-quality and commercial projects, pioneering spirit, a great team and the early recognition of and collaboration with outstanding creative people have made Wiedemann & Berg one of the most successful production companies in Germany.

    As the third German film production ever, their first feature “The Lives of Others”, the directing debut of Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, was awarded an Oscar® for best foreign language film. In the same constellation, they produced “Never Look Away”, which received two Academy Award nominations in 2019. Over the past years the company has successfully produced box office hits, such as Baran bo Odar’s hacking thriller “Who am I” and, amongst others, Simon Verhoeven’s comedy “Welcome to Germany”, with almost 3.9 million tickets sold the most successful German movie release in 2016.

    Their wide scope of TV projects includes not only television feature films and series for all major German broadcasters but also highly acclaimed and internationally awarded mini-series such as „German History X“ and „Line of Separation“, event films, telenovelas and prime time shows. The focus on their role as pioneering producers reflects in having produced the first German Pay-TV series for TNT Series/Turner Broadcasting followed by “4 Blocks” as well as the first German Netflix Original series “DARK” and “Pagan Peak”, one of the first series for Sky Germany.

    The producers as well as their productions have received numerous awards: Academy Award, Auszeichnung der Deutschen Akademie für Fernsehen, British Academy Film Award, German Bambi, Bavarian Television Awards, Bavarian Film Awards, César Award France, European Film Award, Hollywood Reporter Award, German Television Award, German Film Award, Fernsehfilmpreis der Deutschen Akademie der Darstellenden Künste, Golden Camera, Golden Nymph Award, German Grimme Award, GQ Award, LA Critics Award, Magnolia Award Shanghai, Mira Award, BANFF’s Rockie Award and Romy.
