Press/Publications Reinterpret Information - "Seriencamp" festival introduces latest season of "Kleo"

Germany's biggest series event, running in Cologne until Friday, will showcase approximately 30 series from around the globe. The "Seriencamp" kicked off on Wednesday evening with the debut of the RTL plus-production "I am Dagobert," starring Friedrich Mucke as the store-extortionist character Arno Funke, known for Germany's longest extortion case. Funke was said to be present as a consultant for the production. The festival also includes a second season of "Kleo," a German Netflix series starring Jella Haase as Kleo Jennifer Straub, a former contract killer in East Germany. "The Acolyte", the first episodes of the Star Wars series, may be a hit among fans.

The "Seriencamp" celebrates its 10th year in production this year. Previously in Munich, the pandemic relocated the event to the online realm. Last year, it relocated to Cologne's district of Ehrenfeld. The screenings, which are free to the public, are accompanied by a wide-ranging program comprising panels, podcasts, lectures, and audience activities. The "Seriencamp Conference" for industry professionals runs concurrently. Festival director Simone Schellmann expressed great excitement: "We're thrilled to bring our festival back to Cologne for our anniversary year. This city's thriving media scene is the ideal choice for our milestone."
