German production company Caligari Film wrapped PAN TAU, a 14 x 30 min premium family entertainment series. The series was shot in English with over 50 British actors. PAN TAU is a co-production of Caligari Film and German public broadcaster ARD.
British comedy magician Matt Edwards (Britain’s Got Talent 2017 Grand Finalist) stars in PAN TAU. PAN TAU is a being from another world, he does not speak but communicates through empathy, action and his magical powers. Her new home is a high school, and rumor has it that the puppet on display in the lobby can come to life and help teens solve their problems. But PAN TAU has a naive understanding of our world and its magic, more often than not, creates increasing chaos for teenagers and their families.
“We had no idea what the new PAN TAU would look like and the casting list was very long,” says executive producer Gabriele Walther. “But when we ran into Matt Edwards, there was no doubt it was him.”
Lead actor Matt Edwards on his role: “The story is such a breath of fresh air. PAN TAU lives in the present! (…). He just feels the atmosphere of the moment and a lot of people aspire to be like that.
The series was created by producers Gabriele Walther, Marcus Hamann and director Franziska Meyer Price with a team of British screenwriters. PAN TAU (in Czech for “Mr. Tau”) is based on an original character created in the early 1970s by Czech writers and directors Ota Hofman and Jindřich Polák.
Caligari is the first German production house to produce an English-language series with an entirely British cast, shot in Germany. Filming took place in Germany and actors like Niamh McGrady (“The Fall”), Olivia Caffrey (“Oliver Twist”), Jan Anderson (“Prison Break”), Orlando Seale (“Pride and Prejudice”), Jack Kane (“The A List”), Jasmin Jobson (“Top Boy”), Jacob Avery (“Dark Heart”) and many more have played roles in the series.
