ZDF Enterprises’ new science series 'Naked - Generation Gender' starts production

Mainz, February 7th, 2022

Naked - Generation Gender (6 x 50’ or 1 x 90’), a topical science series that explores the role gender plays in determining almost every aspect of our lives, goes into production this month. Produced by Spiegel TV and Primitive Entertainment in association with Crave/Bell Media, ZDF, Arte and global distributor ZDF Enterprises, the documentary will be launched to the market later this year.

Starting from birth through to puberty and old age, the series raises big questions of how our biological sexes affect us. What does it mean to be a woman or a man or cis, trans, gender non-binary or intersex? By seeking answers in lived realities and current research from around the world, Naked delves deep into the different types of family relationships that exist, sex, love and the connection between gender and power. It examines other societies that have their own long-established traditions for third, fourth, fifth or more genders. And it looks at the challenges we face today of finding a partner and starting a family.

Ralf Rueckauer, Vice President ZDFE.unscripted, ZDF Enterprises, said: “Naked - Generation Gender is a timely series that gives a truly fascinating and enlightening insight on a topic that affects us all.” 

The German-Canadian co-production will premiere on ZDF and Arte in Europe and will be available on the Canadian VOD platform Crave.
