About us

Gruppe 5 Filmproduktion realizes quality-conscious TV documentaries and series on large and small questions of history/contemporary history, science, nature and society. With innovative TV formats and unusual stylistic devices, we tell complicated things simply – and thus successfully generate insights even into complex topics. Our productions are informative, sophisticated and surprising.

The multifaceted nature of the documentary genre in general is reflected in the diversity of our documentary work, from pure documentary to reportage to docu-drama.

New scientific perspectives and exciting findings are the focus of our productions for the formats Terra X, Leschs Kosmos and scobel. Or are presented in an entertaining way in the hybrid-format science quiz of the Große Terra X-Show as well as the Terra X-Show Kids.

Throughout the year, we also stage classic studio productions with maybrit illner, scobel and the Literary Quartet.

Founded in 1990, the company is headquartered in Cologne, with two branches in Berlin and Hamburg. Alexander Hesse and Stefan Schneider lead a creative team that has grown over many years, is experienced and also constantly renewing itself.
