NEWS FROM THE WORLD OF TELEVISION SERIES FEAT. ANTA HELENA RECKE AND MATTHIAS DELL
Under the title “Episode”, experts and theorists surrounding the movie magazine “Cargo” each present a TV production for discussion. Anita Helena Recke, director of the currently showing replica production of “Mittelreich” by Anna-Sophie Mahler, based on Joseph Bierbichler’s novel of the same name, talks to Matthias Dell, film editor at the weekly newspaper Der Freitag, about “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”. At the heart of the comedy, which is produced and broadcast by Netflix, is a middle-aged woman. After 15 years of imprisonment, she has freed herself together with three fellow sufferers from the clutches of a sect that believes in the end of the world. In New York she starts a new life and goes into hiding with Titus, an actor who keeps himself afloat with dubious acting jobs in Times Square. She first lives in his broom cupboard, then she finds a job as a nanny for a rich family. Netflix has announced a fourth season for the coming year.
