I wrote for the popular German sitcom Ritas Welt (“Rita’s World”) for Sony Pictures Television International.
I don’t speak any German, but the staff in Cologne spoke English. I’d get up at six in the morning to have a conference call with the German producers — they are nine hours ahead of us — then I’d write and revise an outline and send it via email. After several rounds of notes, I would write the final draft. I wrote the scripts in English and they were translated into German.
Rita’s World was similar in tone to the American sitcom “Roseanne.” It was fun to write for the show, and I learned a lot about German culture (and humor).
How many Jews can say they wrote the Christmas episode of a German television show?
