The broadcast of the corresponding episodes was originally planned for mid-January. The press spokeswoman for the production company Studio Hamburg Serienwerft, Daniela Behns, announced Editorial Network Germany (RND) with the fact that unfortunately only a few incoherent scenes were shot that would not fit into the context.
There was a brief consideration of using the material as a dream sequence for the role of Hannes Lüder, but since the scenes do not fit into any context, unfortunately, we will not be able to use them.
Actually, Dall was supposed to play Richie Sky for 15 episodes, an internationally successful rock star who pays a band buddy from the old days to his hometown Lünebürg. However, after the first three days of shooting, Dall suddenly suffered a stroke from which he could no longer recover. He died less than two weeks later.
The decision was made against filling the role again. The story of Hannes Lüder (Claus Dieter Clausnitzer), who was supposed to meet his old friend Richie, is now told differently. The books have been rewritten accordingly.
Karl Dall started his career in 1967 with the humorous music group Insterburg & Co. After the band broke up, he was increasingly active in television from the 1980s, including as a chaotic projectionist and fun phone operator for “Do you understand fun?”. He also wrote TV history as the inventor of the disrespectful nonsense bar show “Dall-As”.
