wtf is btf?

We create content. From the idea to the finished product. All-in since 2012.

Our first big project was a talk show where people were permitted to smoke and drink. Since then, we've done a lot of shows. In the past, "Neo Magazin Royale," and even earlier, "Neo Magazin”. Currently we produce "Die Carolin Kebekus Show," with guess who? And also "MAITHINK X - Die Show" with Dr. Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim. We want more women as hosts!

In the realm of fiction we produce series and films. You may have heard of "How To Sell Drugs Online (Fast)," one of Germany’s most streamed series. Speaking of which, the prequel film to it, "Buba" with Bjarne Mädel, is coming soon to Netflix. Also made by us. When Corona started, we made "Drinnen - Im Internet sind alle gleich" for ZDFneo. Completely from the home office. That's more exhausting than you’d think... But at least you didn't have to put pants on. After that came "Start The Fck Up", also for ZDFneo. Coming up next, you can watch King of Stonks from us, a series inspired by the biggest financial scandal in recent German history. From 06.07.2022 - exclusively on Netflix. And it's guaranteed to have everyone wearing pants! Except for once, very briefly.

But we don’t just do fiction, we also do hard-hitting reality, in our documentaries. We produced three documentaries for WDR under the title “Docupy”. “Heimatland'' was about Germany. “Ungleichland'' was also about Germany but from the perspective of social inequality and “Neuland” was about the internet. There is a true backstory to "How To Sell Drugs Online (Fast)". We also made a documentary about it titled: "Shiny Flakes - The Teenage Drug Lord", available on Netflix. A few more documentaries are in the pipeline, but we're not allowed to say anything about them yet. Sorry, we don't make the rules!

We also make games. Game Royale, parts 1, 2 and 3, which were made as part of Neo Magazine Royale, were our first steps. Then came Trüberbrook, a point & click adventure, you should really check it out if you haven't already. The next thing to look forward to is The Apartment. We're not allowed to tell you much about it yet, but it's going to be great, you'll just have to trust us on that.

Everything we do, we do with great passion. We've also won prizes for that, 12 Grimme Awards, 8 German Television Awards, the Romy twice, the German Computer Game Award for the best German computer game and the best production, the German Comedy Award, 2 ADC Awards, the Golden Rose of Montreux and a few more. But let's not talk too much about awards. We’re too modest for that.

All of this is btf and we haven't even fit everything we do onto this page.
