ZDF Studios acquires a broad fiction portfolio on behalf of HR Internationale Fiktion for the linear and non-linear platforms of the entire ZDF family of channels, from the main channel to ZDFneo, 3sat and the ZDFmediathek. In addition, ZDF Studios negotiates all international event programmes, multi-part series and high-end series co-produced with the ZDF family of channels.

The most prominent labels in this cosmos include Sunday evening with its procedural-crime formats as well as "Montagskino im ZDF" and the international "Neoriginals" with high-quality fiction for the young target group between 25 - 49.

In the series segment, audiences of the ZDF main programme are offered game-changing crime and thriller programmes such as "The Promise" and "Vigil". The series acquired for ZDFneo, for example "The Last Wave", "High Flyers" or" Killing Eve" are characterised by a wide variety of genres with a view to a younger target group. 

In addition to the licensing business, international co-productions have established themselves as a permanent fixture in ZDF programming and make an important contribution to securing programming success, especially with younger target audiences. Successful formats such as "Beck", "Chelsea Detective" and "The Tourist" as well as "Riding in Darkness" and "Sloborn" for ZDF Neo, for example, as well as major event programmes such as "The Boat" and "Around the World in 80 Days" should be mentioned here.
