Verbotene Liebe should have aired on RTL, but they didn't believe in the concept of the show. After that, ARD took the show and RTL created Unter uns.
The gay story between Christian Mann (played by Thore Schölermann) and Oliver Sabel (played by Jo Weil) became not only very popular in Germany.

Andreas Stenschke, who played Ulli Prozeski on the show from 1997-2001 and had a torrid love affair with Dr. Tom Seifert recently supported the Writers Guild of America Strike effort in America with a short video. It demonstrated how Europeans receive no royalties for the afterlife of their work and warned writers and now American actors, in their current struggle, that they might suffer the same fate when shows and films are rerun over the Internet. You can find this video by doing a search of Andreas Stenschke on You Tube. It is titled "The Perspective From Germany."
