is a German screenwriter, director and transmedia producer

with a crush on serial and digital storytelling.


Janna loves to invent 360°storyworlds

with a high level of immersion and soul power. 


She is a nerd when it comes to her awareness to detail

and character coherence.


Janna studied film, literature and art history.

It's her biggest fun to spice up her scripts with cultural references.


She once was the deputy c.e.o. of two film production companies in Berlin, where she learned a lot about dark humor

from a funny man called Christian Ulmen.


2009 she co-wrote the German cross media-show Ulmen.TV,

which was broadcasted by Comedy Central. 


In 2010 she created and produced her first tv-series

"The Snobs" for the tv channel ZDFneo.


In 2012 her directing debut followed.

The German-French transmedia series "About:Kate" (ARTE)

won awards in Germany and Switzerland.


Recently she wrote for the award winning comedy series Jerks (Maxdome/ProSieben)

and the teen drama Druck (ZDFneo/funk).


Janna lives and creates in Berlin.
