BARAN BO ODAR (Director & Showrunner)

Born in 1978 in Olten, Switzerland, Baran bo Odar made a splash with his gripping thriller The Silence (2010), starring Wotan Wilke Möhring, Ulrich Thomsen and Katrin Saß. This feature-film debut, which was screened at numerous festivals at home and abroad, received overwhelming critical acclaim. Odar gained international attention with his next film, the
complex cyber-thriller Who Am I (2014). Produced by Wiedemann & Berg, who are also the producers of Dark , Who Am I features the crème de la crème of Germany’s actors: Tom Schilling, Elyas M’Barek, Wotan Wilke Möhring, Hannah Herzsprung and Antoine Monot Jr. The box office hit had its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. His next film was his first Hollywood production and was released in theaters this January: the action thriller Sleepless (2017) starring Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan.


Odar studied at the University of Television and Film Munich. In 2003 he worked as assistant director of The Forest for the Trees (2003) by Maren Ade. Two years later he directed his first short film, Quietsch . His next project, Unter der Sonne (2006), was his first 60-minute film.

JANTJE FRIESE (Screenplay Writer & Showrunner)

Born in Marburg, Germany in 1977, Jantje Friese studied Production and Media Business at the University of Television and Film Munich. Her first position after graduation was as a producer at the film production companies Made in Munich and Neue Sentimental Film Berlin. During this time, she supervised the production of a variety of commercials before she worked as a producer for the big screen for the first time with Baran bo Odar’s feature-length film debut, The Silence (2010).


After that, she changed roles and went from production to writing. In the meantime, Friese is also active all over the world and has developed projects for production companies in Los Angeles and London. She and Baran bo Odar wrote the screenplay for Who Am I (2014) together, and Odar filmed it; the political and cyber-thriller received outstanding reviews and earned six 2015 German Film Award nominations, including in the “Best Screenplay” category.


Along with her work as a writer, Jantje Friese also coaches actors, writers and producers with a thematic focus on drama and character development.


Last year, Quirin Berg and Max Wiedemann celebrated their greatest success as producers to date with Welcome to Germany (2016), which was written and directed by Simon Verhoeven. With an audience of more than 3.7 million, it became the most successful German film production of the year. At the German Film Awards, the film not only won a Lola for the year’s most popular film, but it was also one of the five films nominated in the “Best Film” category. The producers had already released Verhoeven’s English-language horror film Friend Request (2016) last spring with great success. Then came the acclaimed three-part TV film NSU: German History X , along with the ambitious two-part TV film Rivals Forever - The Sneaker Battle (Die Dasslers).


The duo continued its successful run in 2017. The producers landed a winner, both with critics and in the ratings, with Marvin Kren’s six-part series 4 Blocks starring Kida Khodr Ramadan, Frederick Lau and Dark costar Oliver Masucci, which had its world premiere at the Berlinale.

After graduating from high school in 1997 and gaining experience in various parts of the media industry, they began their studies together at the University of Television and Film Munich in 1999. They both graduated in 2003 with degrees in Production and Media Business. At that time, the duo produced numerous short films, which have received more than 60 national and international film prizes. In the final year of their studies they founded the Wiedemann & Berg Film company, and in 2003 they completed their first commissioned television production.


Their first cinematic release, The Lives Of Others (2006), which was directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, wrote film history – among other awards, it earned four Bavarian, seven German and three European film awards, a Golden Globe® nomination, the Independent Spirit Award, the British Film Award, the César award and the 2007 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.

Wiedemann & Berg produced the movies St. Daisy (2012, directed by Marcus H. Rosenmüller), Men in the City 2 (2011, directed by Simon Verhoeven), Friendship! (most successful German film of the year 2010, directed by Markus Goller), Men in the City (2009, directed by Simon Verhoeven), Räuber Kneissl (2007, directed by Marcus H. Rosenmüller) and Military Academy (2006, directed by Granz Henman), as well as a variety of television films and event productions.


The two producers also celebrated a sensational cinematic success with the comedy Joy Of Fatherhood (2014), which was directed by Matthias Schweighöfer and Torsten Künstler and drew nearly 2.5 million viewers to German theaters, making it one of the most successful German films of the year. In 2014, they attracted international attention with the cyber-thriller Who Am I (2014) by the two creators of Dark, Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese.


Since the release of their first TV movie in 2007, Raging Inferno , they have repeatedly enjoyed success with notable television productions; their online series Add a Friend is currently in its third season. Frauenherzen, starring Nadeshda Brennicke and Julia Dietze, was also a success, as was the critically acclaimed TV movie Die Spiegel-Affäre , which was directed by Roland Suso Richter. That was followed by efforts such as the ambitious historical three-part film Tannbach , with leading roles played by German stars such as Martina Gedeck, Nadja Uhl, Maximilian Brückner and Ronald Zehrfeld.


Wiedemann & Berg productions have received numerous awards, including the Jupiter Award and the Bambi Award for Men in the City.
