graefekiez is cheaper than a television studio
and a day of TV filming pays more than a day’s worth of receipts/tips at a restaurant. during a little nostalgia walk back through the old neighborhood yesterday, i realized that this must be true. on graefestr., zitrone was being painted bright blue for filming today and tomorrow for an episode of Im Namen des Gesetzes. last week, while painting in the old apartment, i watched avril being turned into a restaurant called "engel" for a new TV soap on ARD called Liebe, Liebe.
other filmed locales in graefekiez:
cafe rizz – eh i forgot the name of the show
mika, the bar diagonally across from avril, which is now renovated, renamed, and repopulated with the same folks, also on Im Namen des Gesetzes
not that i watch any of these shows…
but it’s quite interesting that in such a short period of time that so much filming goes on in a 4 block radius.
