Broadcast Date “Meine fremde Freundin” November 8, 2017 at 8:15 pm on Das Erste
“Meine fremde Freundin” tells of a tremendous suspicion: The office macho Volker Lehmann (Hannes Jaenicke) is said to have brutally raped the new colleague Judith Lorenz (Ursula Strauss) in a storage room. This is how Judith tells her friend and colleague Andrea (Valerie Niehaus). She encourages Andrea to go to the police – a move that threatens to engulf all three in a maelstrom of suspicion and revelation.
Hubertus Meyer-Burckhardt and Christoph Bicker received the Hamburg Producers’ Choice Award for German Television Productions at the Hamburg Film Festival for the thrilling NDR drama “Meine fremde Freundin”. The two made the film for the Polyphon Film and Television Company. The 25,000 Euro prize was awarded on Friday, October 13th. On Wednesday, November 8, at 8:15 pm, the TV premiere will feature “My Foreign Girlfriend” as a prelude to the theme night “Sexual Coercion, Lies and Prejudices”.
