- Red Arrow’s Sultan Sushi produces the show for vtm
Munich, June, 21. Belgium’s biggest commercial network vtm has purchased the production rights to hit series “Danni Lowinski.” vtm has commissioned the first season and the series will launch on vtm under the same name in 2012. Sultan Sushi, a subsidiary of the ProSiebenSat.1 company Red Arrow Entertainment, will produce the show.
Henrik Pabst, Director International Format Acquisition and Regional Sales Director Benelux, Scandinavia & UK: “’Danni Lowinski’ is based on a truly unique concept: a hairdresser-turned-lawyer who fights for the underdogs with unconventional methods. The programming executives at vtm were taken by the outspoken lawyer right away and we cannot wait to see the Belgian version.”
In Germany, “Danni Lowinski” just finished its second successful season on SAT.1. The series has generated audience shares of up to 17.6 percent. It has also won several awards, including the German Television Award.
Thoroughly funny and highly entertaining, “Danni Lowinski” (produced by Markus Brunnemann/Phoenix Film and created by Marc Terjung) depicts the tumultuous life of the unconventional main character, Danni. A trained hairdresser, Danni decided some time ago that she could do more than just comb hair, so she began studying law. Now, at age 32, she has just passed her exams and is enthusiastic about the idea of finally practicing her profession. But when her job interview with prestigious lawyer Oliver turns into a disaster and all of her other applications are rejected as well, her dreams of a better life are shattered. On top of that, Danni shares her tiny apartment with her grumpy dad, who is confined to a wheelchair. She stubbornly defies her father’s wish that she would go back to hairdressing. Danni wants more out of life – and decides to offer legal advice to the less fortunate in a quite unusual setting…
