Redseven Entertainment, a Red Arrow Studios company, has been commissioned by Amazon Prime Video Germany to produce the new comedy series “Binge Reloaded”. It is Redseven Entertainment’s first production for the streaming provider in Germany. The eight, half-hour episodes will launch on Amazon Prime Video in Germany and Austria in late 2020.
Each episode of “Binge Reloaded” is one fictional night of TV programming told through short, hilarious sketches – including parodies of popular streaming or TV moments, performed by a talented cast playing a host of German media personalities. The cast of “Binge Reloaded” includes parody veterans Michael Kessler and Martin Klempnow, known for their appearance in “Switch Reloaded”, and newcomers Tahnee Schaffarczyk, Antonia von Romatowski, Joyce Ilg, Jan van Weyde, Paul Sedlmeir, and Christian Schiffer. The show is written by Marc Löb and directed by Erik Polls, Sven Nagel, and Joscha Seehausen with Georg Kappenstein as producer and Sebastian Benthues serving as executive producer.
Jobst Benthues, CEO of Redseven Entertainment, said: “We are delighted to be working with Amazon Prime on our first production for a major streaming provider. Comedy is one of Redseven’s core strengths – and with ‘Binge Reloaded’, we are creating a unique series which builds on the best comedy traditions, and is full of cult potential.”
Dr. Christoph Schneider, Managing Director of Amazon Prime Video Germany, added: "We are very excited to be able to present an absolute comedy highlight to our Prime members with ‘Binge Reloaded’. Whether series, films, fictional show characters, actors, presenters, athletes or national and international stars and starlets – no screen favorite is safe from the high-quality parodies of the fantastic cast.”
