A retirement home populated by headstrong and unconventional individuals, mutinous staff members and a new management with altogether different plans. That’s the set up for a new comedy show for SWR by Ulrike Grote. Shooting will continue up to mid-July for six episodes of “Der letzte Wille”. With Swabian puns and a quirky sense of humor, Ulrike Grote takes an affectionate but merciless and unsparing look at the last years of life.
Among this large ensemble are Janna and Jochen Striebeck, Karoline Eichhorn, Sabine Hahn, Katharina Matz, Franziska Küpferle, Hannah Walther, Joachim Raaf, Christian Pätzold, Willem Menne, Jürgen Haug, Christian Koerner, Nicki von Tempelhoff, Eugene Boateng and Gosia Konieczna. We are already familiar with quite a few of the actors from “Die Kirche bleibt im Dorf”.
A broadcasting date has not yet been announced.
