'White Ribbon' producer joins X Filme
Michael Polle oversaw production on German series 'KDD'CANNES -- Producer Michael Polle has signed on the dotted line with Berlin's X Filme, producers of last year's Palme d'Or winner "The White Ribbon."
Polle joins X Filme from Munich shingle Hofman & Voges, where he oversaw production on critically acclaimed German TV series "KDD." Together with X Filme managing directors Stefan Arndt and Uwe Schott, Polle will be in charge of acquiring and developing small-screen material.
The hiring is part of X Filme's move to build up its TV arm. The company, whose feature credits include "Good bye, Lenin!" and "Run Lola Run," is currently in postproduction on its first TV movie -- an episode of long-running ARD crime series "Tatort."
