Hannes and Christoph first met in Prague in 2008 when Hannes was working at TV Prima as Head of Acquisitions and Christoph tried to sell him locally produced TV shows. (We will not share with you whether Christoph was successful or not). It took them a few phone calls to figure out that they are both Germans: Hannes is from Garmisch-Partenkirchen in the far south of Germany and Christoph is from Hamburg in the far north of Germany. Well actually Hannes is from Farchant and Christoph from Pinneberg. But who the heck has ever heard of these places? After many meetings (and parties) in Cannes they became friends. For many years since then they worked for different companies within the industry (Hannes mostly in the Czech Republic, Christoph in Germany) until they established Constantin Entertainment Czech in 2014 and finally became colleagues under the roof of the big production house.
After they both left Constantin in 2021, they decided to finally take a chance and build up something of their own: KARLSBRIDGE! (Don’t ask for a deeper meaning of the name, because there is none. It just sounds nice. And the URL for CARLSBERG was taken already.)
