After a new title and the new content orientation, the “Blaue Panther – TV & Streaming Award” 2022 is also presented in a fresh and modern design on its own website (www.blauerpanther.com). The composition of the jury is also new. The group has now announced which actresses and actors have been nominated for the coveted trophy made of white Nymphenburg porcelain: Lisa Maria Potthoff, Soma Pysall and Luna Wedler as well as Bruno Alexander, Peter Kurth and Florian Lukas.

The new title of the former Bavarian TV award already reflects the content and the contemporary restructuring, because in addition to television, productions for streaming providers or web creator formats for social media platforms can also be rewarded. The recipients of the “Blue Panther – TV & Streaming Award” 2022, which will be organized by Medien.Bayern GmbH in the future, are correspondingly different: Bavarian State Center for New Media (BLM), Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR), Google Germany GmbH, Prime Video, RTL Germany, Seven.One Entertainment Group GmbH, Sky Germany and Second German Television (ZDF) / 3sat. The award is sponsored by the Bavarian State Chancellery and the Bavarian State Department for Digital Affairs.

Digital Minister Judith Gerlach: “Digitalization is also revolutionizing the media industry. With the new orientation and the new face of the former Bavarian television award as the TV & Streaming Award, we also show the innovative and increasingly digital power that lies in our media companies. The Blue Panther thus becomes the key award for the German TV and streaming industry.”

dr Thorsten Schmiege, Chairman of the General Assembly of Medien.Bayern GmbH and Chairman of the Bavarian State Center for New Media (BLM): “It’s great that the legendary Blue Panther opens up for streaming productions in 2022. After all, streaming has become an essential, innovative and forward-looking part of the media industry – especially in Bavaria. We are particularly pleased to host this glamorous event for the first time time as MEDIENTAGE MÜNCHEN to be!”

Medien.Bayern GmbH CEO Stefan Sutor: “The relaunch of the former Bavarian TV Award and its organization as part of MEDIENTAGE MÜNCHEN creates room for a wide range of synergies within the Bavarian media industry. In addition, we benefit from the top-class sponsors from concentrated industry knowledge and many years of experience.”

New jury for “Blue Panther – TV & Streaming Award”

Under the leadership of Prof. dr. Klaus Schaefer, long-time managing director of the FilmFernsehFonds Bayern (FFF Bayern), will be awarded the “Blue Panther” by an independent jury consisting of Andreas Bönte (Bayerischer Rundfunk), Stefan Feldmann (Bayern State Chancellery), Dagmar Harms (Syv). .One Entertainment Group GmbH). ), Katharina Cake Book (ZDF), Philip Pratt (Amazon Studios), Katja Rieger (RTL Germany), Kamila Schmid (Sky Germany), Susanne Wiesner (freelance TV producer, seconded by BLM) and Eva Wilkens (YouTube / Google) , supplemented by the experts Adina Mungenast (FFF Bayern), Prof. Taç Romey (University for Television and Film Munich), Andrea Schönhuber-Majewski (MoveMe GmbH) and Torsten Zarges (DWDL.de).

Four categories, six nominated actors

The “Blue Panther – TV & Streaming Award” is awarded in four categories: information/journalism, fiction, entertainment and culture/education. The jury decides how many “Blue Panthers” are awarded in which category. Prof. Dr. Klaus Schäfer: “In light of the total range of more than 200 entries presented to the jury, it can be said that German TV and streaming work is rich in genres and colors and – at least in terms of the submitted projects – has a extraordinarily high level of quality. Due to the delayed inclusion of the original streaming projects, the variety in the overall offer has again increased significantly – not only quantitatively, but also qualitatively.”

The jury has now announced the nominees for the “Best Actress” and “Best Actress” awards:

  • Lisa Maria Potthoff for her roles in the film “Dangerous Truth” (Arte) and the series “Herzogpark” (RTL+), Soma Pysall for the series “Para – Wir sind King” (Warner TV series) and Luna Wedler for the Instagram series ” @ ichbinsophiescholl” (SWR / BR)
  • Bruno Alexander for his roles in the series “Die Discounter” (Prime Video) and the film “Der Rebell – von Leimen nach Wimbledon” (RTL), Peter Kurth for his role in the series “Ferdinand von Schirach – Faith” (RTL+ / Vox) and Florian Lukas for his performance in the series “Die Waspe” (Sky).

All award winners will be announced and awarded at the award ceremony on October 19, 2022 in Munich. The award ceremony will be produced by LEONINE Studios and their production company i&u TV and will take place as part of MEDIENTAGE MÜNCHEN (October 18 to 20, 2022).
