I’m a total TV show addict and one of my dreams has always been a drama show about life in Berlin. Not because life here is particularily dramatic, quite the contrary, but in those 14 years that I’ve been living here, I have experienced and heard enough stories that could fill a couple of seasons.
With the new independently produced show Ecke Weserstraße my little dream might have potentially come true. Created and produced by Johannes Hertwig and Hayung von Oepen the show tells the story of three young friends who live in the popular Reuterkiez and try to make it in Berlin. The trailer already has some lines that are pretty on point and painfully true: “Every victim here has their own blog and that’s why they everyone believes they can do it too.” Haha, are you talking about us? Well, I understand where this criticism comes from. But personally, as someone who has been blogging for 7 years and is part of an early generation of bloggers, I still congratulate everyone who starts something new, a fashion blog, a tumblr, your own little sock label. It doesn’t matter that there are already so many people out there already doing similar things. If you have the chance to try yourself out, do it and don’t let other people discourage you. I’m really curious what Ecke Weserstraße is going to express with this matter. More about it and all three episodes after the jump.
