Apr 21 FFF Bavaria has announced that they will support the production of the 2nd season of the multiple award winning ZDF TV-series "Tannbach - Line of Separation" with 700.000 Euros. The new 3x90 minutes episodes will follow the fate of the families von Striesow, Erler, Schober and other Tannbach-villagers from the years 1960 to 1968. Principal photography will begin in October 2016 in Prague (Czech Republic). It will again be produced by Gabriela Sperl and Wiedemann & Berg, and directed by Alexander Dierbach. No information so far whether Maximilian Brückner will reprise his role as Gustl Schober, but it is a sure bet that the main cast will return.
