Oh Hell

good friends Filmproduktions GmbH, Deutsche Telekom, Warner Bros. Discovery (Warner TV Comedy)


- Comedy Series: Non-English Language

Sharp wit, absurd dialogs and accidental romance: The new series by author and creator Johannes Boss ("Jerks") is a tribute to the female weirdo. Helene is different, imaginative, exhausting, funny, but also extremely irresponsible. She shapes her life with the help of a number of lies or at least very free interpretations of the truth. Lead actress Mala Emde immediately draws the audience into Helene's world, which, thanks to Hell's distinctive talents and overflowing imagination, is a madcap one in the very best sense. She creates a character who is neither saint nor whore nor classically wacky-sexy, but refreshingly weird. Coproduced by Magenta TV and Warner TV Comedy and globally available on HBO Max, Hollywood Reporter named "Oh Hell" "arguably the best show, period, in 2022, this gem of a German dramedy channels 'Fleabag' and 'Single Drunk Female'". Season 2 is currently in development.
