Turner to boost local production in Germany

Following the announcement in September of its planned launch of a female-focused channel, Glitz, next year, Turner Broadcasting is reportedly aiming to further strengthen its position in the German market by launching the first original production for its TNT Series channel in the New Year, and has hired Andrea Gunther and Sascha Kunth to head up local productions. 

The broadcaster will air 10-part comedy drama Add a Friend, focusing on the relationships of a group of Facebook generation individuals and aimed at a female audience, in the first half of next year, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Add a Friend will be produced by production group Wiedemann & Berg Filmproduktion.
