Cologne (ots) – After the most successful summer in its history to date, broadcaster ARD ONE begins fall with new highlights in the series and entertainment sectors. These include the second season of the Grimme Award-winning series “Parlament”, new episodes of “Bauerfeind” and free TV premieres such as “Professor T”. From September, the additional audio track “Clear Language” for ONE will also be available.
Ingmar Cario, ONE Program Director and WDR Deputy Program Director for Information, Fiction and Entertainment: “ONE achieved the highest market share in its history at 1.3% in July and continues to be an important pillar of the ARD media library. We want to build on this success with new highlights in the fall. Particularly Close From Our Hearts is the second season of Parliament, the first series that was co-produced.”
