Our documentary format “MAKE LOVE” with sexologist Ann-Marlene Henning is nominated for the German Television Award 2017 in the category „Best Infotainment”. In all four seasons the successful format dares to address the great taboos of sexuality and partnership. MAKE LOVE is the first TV programme that brings the authentic and individual realities of sex into public TV and also discusses homosexual sex in the nominated 4th season.
The 4th season was realized by the directors Tristan Ferland Milewski and Janina Hahn and the editors Friederike Haedecke and Johannes Geiger. It was broadcasted in July 2016 on ZDF. In July 2017 two more episodes of MAKE LOVE will follow for ZDF.
The format started in 2013 on MDR and SWR and in 2015 Peter Arens commissioned it for ZDF’s main programme where the format was developed further. In 2014, the MAKE LOVE web feature www.make-love.de was nominated for the Grimme Online Award and the Impact Award.
Besides MAKE LOVE, the TV shows „Galileo“ and „Das Jenke-Experiment“ are nominated in the category „Infotainment“. Next to the Grimme Award, the German Television Award is one of the most important awards of the TV industry and is awarded by the broadcasters Das Erste, ZDF, RTL and Sat. The award ceremony is held on February 2, 2017 in Cologne.
We want to thank the great MAKE LOVE TEAM – without your commitment and skills the programme would not be the same!
