Tatjana Scheel

Screenwriter

She was seven when she wrote her first short story. It was about the passionate love between an apple and a pear, who had met in the fruit basket, but their love ended tragically because the bananas who were in charge were strictly against it.

She later studied screenwriting at the Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf and took part in Timo Gössler’s “Serial Writing and Producing” workshop, where she discovered her great passion for serial writing.

In 2019 Tatjana attended the Writer’s Room for the 2nd season of the TNT comedy series “Andere Eltern” by Lutz Heineking Jr., which started in March 2020.

Today she writes series, films and currently her first novel.

Tatjana is the mother of two children and lives in Berlin. She is driven by the desire to tell complex and often difficult topics with ease and humor, without being too silly. She has a preference for bizarre characters such as clairvoyant borderline patients or radical feminist vampires. Despite their exaggeration, these characters show great emotional depth.
Tatjana’s current favorite series is Killing Eve by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

What else Tatjana extremely likes : To dance. To receive lots of Thai Massages. To play soccer. To read. To go to the sea with her family…
