»Period drama is always supposed to be about the lessons learned from our past. Now that I’m done writing »Auf Asche«, I don’t know if that’s so true anymore. Did we really learn anything from history? Nevertheless, I will keep on writing period series, because I believe that fiction can be a powerful tool to create remembrance.«
During his studies in literature and linguistics David worked as an assistant to the commissioning editor at the TV channel SUPER RTL. After his graduation, he wants to focus on writing drama series. He is very interested in the idea of european co-productions, and currently looks forward to collaborating on the dramedy series »Hail Helene« with some of his fellow students, which is being funded by the Film- und Medienstiftung NRW. When he is not writing, he enjoys making music and travelling – preferably combined.
