The film industry is in a constant process of change. Digitization, as well as changing audience demands and viewing habits, are influencing and changing production and distribution processes in media companies.
Everything needs to be more cost and time efficient than it did a few years ago, and new formats within ever shorter production times force writers and editors to work under constant time pressure.
RTL Studios, a subsidiary of the RTL Deutschland Group, is not exempt from this development. As the leading producer of streaming content on TVNOW/RTL+ (in 2020 it was 1710 min. – source DWDL), the company has been running numerous TV formats since 2004.
