ZDF Enterprises co-producer and worldwide distributor of 'Sløborn 2'
Mainz, April 9th, 2021
ZDF Enterprises will also co-produce the second season of the drama and catastrophe series "Sløborn" and will again be responsible for its global distribution. Season 1 of the ZDFneoriginal series dealt with the outbreak of a virus that rampaged worldwide on the island Sløborn, and the inhabitants fight to survive the catastrophe. In season 2, audiences will experience the world after its collapse. Shooting for the new season will take place in the spring of 2021. Wotan Wilke Möhring, Emily Kusche, Alexander Scheer, Aaron Hilmer, Adrian Grünewald and Lea van Acken will once again appear in front of the camera directed by Christian Alvart and Adolfo J. Kolmerer (screenplay by Arend Remmers and Christian Alvart).
After many residents of Sløborn had died of the fatal pigeon flu, the island was evacuated. But a small group of people refused to be evacuated and hid on the island, for fear of being exposed to an even greater risk of infection on the mainland. A volatile mix of different characters, which threatens to explode as they become more and more separated from the comfort and conveniences of civilisation. When faced with the blackout, the battle for food, protection and information gets harder and harder, and it soon becomes clear just how thin the varnish of morality, education and humanity really is.
The second season of "Sløborn" is also produced by Syrreal Entertainment (producers: Sigi Kamml, Christian Alvart and Timm Oberwelland) in co-production with ZDFneo, Tobis (Peter Eiff, Theo Gringel and Tobias Seiffert), Nordisk Film, Denmark and ZDF Enterprises (Robert Franke). Doris Schrenner is on the ZDF editing team.
Since it was launched online on 23 July 2020, ZDF’s entire online offering of "Sløborn" has to date generated a total of 6.36 million views. Of this, the streaming videos from the whole series have achieved 5.75 million views (719,000 views on average/0.44 million viewers on average per episode). This corresponds to 90 per cent of the total usage, making "Sløborn" the most successful ZDFneo series in the ZDFmediathek.
