SevenOne International: “Schiller Street” Wins South Africa’s Most Important TV Award

Munich, March 18, 2011. The German improv comedy "Schiller Street" has won South Africa's most famous TV award. The program received a SAFTA (South African Film and Television Award) for "Best Comedy Ensemble." The prize is of similar prestige in South Africa to the Oscar in the United States. The improv comedy has been running under the title "Proesstraat" since January 2010 on South African pay TV channel kykNET, which belongs to the country's largest pay TV broadcaster, M-Net. The new season will premiere on April 4, 2011 at 8 pm. Said Yan He, Regional Sales Director of SevenOne International: "We are incredibly happy about this award and about the second season of 'Proesstraat' on kykNET. Warm congratulations to the station and Richter Medien, the makers of the South African show." Hosted by South African actress and TV presenter Nina Swart, the first-rate cast of the show includes the TV stars Waldemar Schultz, Pierre Breytenbach, Melt Sieberhagen and Wikus du Toit as well as the popular stage actresses Martelize Kolver and Esther von Waltsleben. The show is produced by Harald Richter of Richter Medien. Debuting on Germany's SAT.1, "Schiller Street" (created and produced by Hurricane) has been one of the most innovative and successful comedy formats in the recent years. The concept has already won various national and international TV prizes such as the Rose d'Or Press Prize 2005. SevenOne International, the ProSiebenSat.1 Group's worldwide programming sales company has sold the format to numerous countries, including France, Italy, Russia, Finland, Norway and Turkey. The Italian adaptation "Buona la Prima" won the national "Telegrolle 2008" and "Gran Premio della Fiction Italiana '08" for best sitcom. "Schiller Street"
"Schiller Street" (created and produced by Hurricane) is improv comedy at its best with a true sitcom feeling: A few top-class comedians are guided not by a script but by spontaneous directions which are communicated via earphones to individual cast members, often resulting in hilarious scenes.
