Going Hoff script
US star David Hasselhoff and producer Siegfried Kamml discuss their partnership on Ze Network, in which the actor plays a heightened version of himself who takes a role in a conspiracy thriller he doesn’t know whether is real or imagined.
For a whole generation, David Hasselhoff is synonymous with iconic roles as Michael Knight in Knight Rider and Mitch Buchannon in Baywatch. Now he is taking his acting career in a new direction with an “unusual” German-language project he describes as “completely nuts.”
Ze Network is the fictional story of Hollywood actor Hasselhoff’s new lead role in a theatre play in Germany, which plunges him into the centre of an international conspiracy involving former Cold War assassins, while around him the fabric of reality seems to break down. But is it all real or just in his head?
Here, producer Siegfried Kamml reveals how he came to work with Hasselhoff, who remains one of the biggest international stars in Germany, while Hasselhoff discusses the opportunity to take his acting career in a new direction and the changing landscape of international television.
Ze Network is produced by Surreal Entertainment for streamer RTL+ and distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution.
