The Company


LETTEBOX FILMPRODUKTION develops and produces fictional content programming. From long-standing series and programs to high-quality theatrical movies – the company produces programming for all major German broadcasters and the cinema market. A variety of formats originates from the on-going exchange with the creative stars of the industry resulting in a wide topical spectrum from crime, drama and mystery to comedy.  An experienced fiction team produces custom-made programming for each individual time slot. Along with a sense for innovations and new trends, proven ideas and traditions remain in focus: Strongly rated television programs such as “Notruf Hafenkante” (ZDF), “Großstadtrevier” (ARD), “Die Pfefferkörner” (ARD) and “Die Kanzlei” (ARD), formerly “Der Dicke”, as well as the Norwegian series “Liebe am Fjord” (ARD) draw millions of viewers. The film version of Sven Regener’s novel “Neue Vahr Süd” (ARD) belongs as much to the portfolio as the star-studded event film “Der Tote auf dem Eis (ZDF) with Manfred Zapatka, Kai Wiesinger and Ulrich Tukur or “Die Schuld der Erben” (ZDF) with Otto Sander, Lisa Martinek and Gaby Dohm.

Additionally, originating from LETTERBOX FILMPRODUKTION among others are the television movies “Vater Mutter Mörder” (ZDF) with Heino Ferch and Silke Bodenbender, “Unter der Haut” (NDR) with Friedrich Mücke and more recently the thriller “Im Tunnel” (ZDF) with Maria Simon as well as “Die vermisste Frau” (ARD Degeto) with Corinna Harfouch, Jörg Hartmann and Ulrich Matthes.

Recent productions include the screen adaptation of Pascal Mercier’s best-selling novel, “Night Train to Lisbon”, starring, among others, Jeremy Irons, as well as “HEIL”, a film by Dietrich Brüggemann, which was released in German theaters in 2015 and was awarded the German Film Critics Award for “Best Screenplay” and “Best Editing” at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival. The companys’ current cinema productions “SIMPEL”, the screen adaptation of Marie-Aude Murail’s bestselling novel, and “Die Pfefferkörner und der Fluch des schwarzen Königs”, the first cinema adventure of the young detectives “Die Pfefferkörner”, recently finished filming. Further in 2018 there will be produced a theatrical movie about the life of Udo Lindenberg, working titel "Mach dein Ding"(WT), and a film adaption of the popular series "Berlin, Berlin".
