From 1997 to 1999, five action-packed thriller films SARDSCH with Hannes Jaenicke in the title role were produced by Saxonia Media for SAT12. The director was Axel de Roche. The centrepiece was a three-part film consisting of three 90-minute films, shot in Dresden and the surrounding area. The three-part film was awarded the Adolf Grimme Prize several times. "Sardsch" is the nickname for public prosecutor Kopper (Hannes Jaenicke), who faces an extremely aggressive mafia structure led by his godfather Baranowski (Rolf Hoppe), who is disguised as a lover of classical music and is almost powerless. Baranowski is the boss of the East German red-light milieu, which does not shy away from any aggressive method.
Music was composed with Co-Author Andreas Weidinger.
