Mini-series for the ARD media library

The dramedy series is about four gay men in Berlin: as different as long-term student and night owl Vince (29), the mysterious Robbie (27), the philistine web designer Levo (34) and the late-coming family man Tom (43) are like - they all have one thing in common: The search for love and security.

From May 7th in the ARD media library

The five-part series can be seen from May 7th in the ARD media library. It will also be broadcast on ONE on May 16 and 17.

That's what ALL YOU NEED is about

The long-term relationship that is suddenly facing the ultimate test. The mountain of financial debt that keeps growing. The one-night stand that never lets up. The lifelong dream that threatens to burst like a soap bubble. The great love that remains unrequited. The Dramedy series covers universal topics that everyone can identify with. Only this time the characters are gay.


The medical student Vince (Benito Bause) lives in a shared apartment with the web designer Levo (Arash Marandi). The two are best friends and yet different. Levo also loves the advantages of big city life and has taken a lot with him. But unlike Vince, who never had a relationship in his late twenties and meets men on dating apps, he believes in monogamy in love.

When Levo moves to the stuffy suburb to live with his new partner Tom (Mads Hjulmand), something begins to change with Vince too. In a club he met the fitness coach Robbie (Frédéric Brossier). It's not only bold, sexy and mysterious, but also completely different than initially thought. Robbie has a dark side that he wants to hide from Vince by all means. The status change from "single" to "relationship" poses challenges for Vince and Robbie, as well as Levo and Tom. How much freedom is allowed

Director and screenwriter Benjamin Gutsche:

»It's the year 2020 and characters from the LGBTQI community are still mainly told as minor characters on German television. I am pleased to be able to change this with ALL YOU NEED. Hopefully that's just the beginning. "

Christoph Pellander, Editor-in-chief ARD Degeto:

»The ARD media library offensive is in full swing and has also changed our work at ARD Degeto. With our new series ALL YOU NEED, which is primarily planned as a media library offer, we are for the first time addressing a younger audience in a short-form format that is new to us. In 5 x 20 minutes we tell the varied stories of our four protagonists: Diverse and edgy, modern and in tune with the times. "

Nataly Kudiabor, producer UFA Fiction:

“We're finally starting to show what our society really looks like on screens. In this way, diversity comes naturally to the center of our work. This is very important to me and also to UFA. Benjamin Gutsche has created a modern and emotional series that takes us into the urban world of queer friends. (Same) Sex and the city is back! Have popcorn and handkerchiefs ready! "

ALL YOU NEED is a production by UFA Fiction, carried out by UFA Serial Drama, on behalf of ARD Degeto for the ARD media library.
