Granada Germany, RTL in triple script deal

The RTL projects include a primetime drama, a TV movie and a family-friendly sitcom. Veteran German producer Gerda Mueller will develop the drama project in her new role as a senior producer at Grenada Germany. Mueller executive produced the crime drama "Der letzte Bulle" for Granada and commercial net Sat.1.
RTL and Granada have partnered before on entertainment formats. The German net has just commissioned a third season of the BBC's "Strictly Come Dancing" format, which Granada's Cologne-based operation will produce and Granada's German version of ITV Studios' "I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!" has been a ratings champ on RTL.
