For the first time, the German Television Prize will be awarded not on one evening, but on two consecutive evenings. But on the first night, there were no big surprises.
German TV will celebrate two evenings in 2022
On September 13, the “Creativity Night” was held, at which eleven prizes were presented. The five-time favorite “Der Pass” has already won two awards as “Eldorado KaDeWe”. Jan Böhmermann’s “ZDF Magazin Royale” was once again awarded in the Best Entertainment Book category.
The big party, which will be broadcast live and prime time on ZDF on September 14, will be moderated by Barbara Schönberger – where the eagerly awaited “big” prizes will be awarded.

The German Netflix production of “The Billion Dollar Code” and the ZDF thriller series “Der Pass” each received five pre-nominations. The Netflix mini-series deals with the development of “Google Earth” predecessor “TerraVision” and has been nominated for Best Mini-Series, among other things.
