Shooting for season two of the Swabian comedy series “The Church Stays in the Village“ started at the beginning of February. The public TV channel SWR ordered twelve new episodes of the provincial farce. Once again the quarrels, love affairs, animosities and secrets of the hostile villages of Upper- and Lower Rieslinger will make the audience laugh and cry. The villagers have yet to come to peace – even though half a year has passed since the scandalous confessions were made at the church and Maria’s accident. Gottfried banned his treacherous mother from the castle. Since then, Grandma Anni lives with Elisabeth in Lower Rieslingen. This, of course, causes lots of trouble. Also, Ludwig returned to earth. Christine moved in with her natural father in Upper Rieslingen and refuses to sell the pond in order to save her mother’s pig farm. And Gottfried has the ingenious idea of having little Thaddäus declared dead to thus spare him from having to go to a foster home.
The stories of the first six episodes will be produced at the beginning of 2014. The stories are written by Ulrike Grote who is also responsible for directing. The last six episodes will be filmed in autumn 2014.
