The German made-for-TV drama Die Hoffnung Stirbt Zuletzt (Final Hope) was originally shot on 16 mm and directed by Marc Rothemud. Enthusiastic country girl Corinna Safranski (Anneke Kim Sarnau) goes to the city when she gets accepted to join the Hamburg Police. She encounters much adversity from her male colleagues and from her boss, Eddy Garbitsch (Axel Prahl). Fellow cop Jens (Wotan Wilke Moehring) starts out as a jerk, but eventually softens up. Hoffnung Stirbt Zuletzt won several awards, including the Golden Camera for Best German Movie Made for Television.
