  1. HBO and another company bought the American rights to the Christian & Olli story line. Shirley Ozment (FB her) is trying to start a writing campaign to get Jo and Thore a part on the show - even if its just a guest appearance. :D

  2. I wish HBO all the luck in the world but if it's the Christian and Olli story, I hope it actually seems like a variation of it instead of in name only. Although part of me thinks there's no way to duplicate it so starting from scratch might be better.

    But YES to Jo and Thore appearing on the show!

  3. Thanks for the great interview!

    To answer one question, there isn't a sponsor for the show. Das Erste is a publicly owned television channel so they show very little commercials (20 minutes per day all in all and only on weekdays). The people who pay for the show is the viewing public through the fees every German household who owns a TV set has to pay.

    The broadcaster is mandated by law to educate the German public so promoting tolerance towards homosexuality is very important to them. Incidentally in 1987, their hit show Lindenstra├če featured the first gay kiss on a German TV show.
