First broadcast on RTL in November 1994, Unter Uns rapidly became one of Germany’s most popular television soap operas. The show has now recorded more than 3,600 episodes and is now produced in Germany by Grundy UFA TV Produktions GmbH, one of FremantleMedia’s international production companies.
The show is centred around the lives of people living in a house split into apartments in the fictional Schillerallee in Cologne. Here several generations are loving, arguing, hoping and living under one roof. The Weigels are the core family and run the pastry shop downstairs where solutions for every crisis are usually found, while the bar next door generally throws up more intrigue and drama.
