ON AIR: 2nd SEASON “THE CURCH STAYS IN THE VILLAGE”


Half a year has passed in Upper and Lower Rieslingen since the Häberles’ and Rossbauers’ dark family secrets were revealed. Christine Rossbauer who, as it turns out, is actually the daughter of Gottfried Häberle, has drawn the consequences and moved out from her mother’s place and in with her new father. In return, Gottried has repudiated his mother Grandma Anni whom he blames for not letting him marry the great love of his youth and having his child grow up with Ludwig Rossbauer.

While Grandma Anni does in fact find shelter at the Rossbauer’s pig farm, cohabitation with Elisabeth proves to be less than harmonious. And, caught between two stools, the pastor can’t please one party without disgruntling the other. Thus continues the feud between these stubborn Swabian villagers – in Swabian dialect and with lots of black humor. Watch Season 2 on Mondays at 20.15 as part of SWR’s Christmas program.
