But perhaps it is precisely because of its quirkiness that the Pichlers regularly come to his office and give him a humorous and endearing insight into their - perhaps quite typical Austrian - everyday lives. Katrin Lux, Robert Stadlober and Andreas Vitásek find themselves in the middle of a "family affair" when filming of the new ORF family comedy series of the same name starts on Wednesday, December 9, 2020. The ten 45-minute episodes are based on the hit Israeli format "La Famiglia."
In front of the camera, in addition to Andreas Vitásek as the quirky couples therapist Dr. Nemeth and Katrin Lux and Robert Stadlober as the Pichler couple, are Lucy Gartner, Alice Prosser and Leopold Pallua (as their children), Margarethe Tiesel (as Grandma) and Clemens Berndorff (as a family friend). Episode roles include Alexander Pschill, Michaela Schausberger, Kristina Sprenger, Laura Hermann, Fanny Krausz, Julian Loidl and Gabriela Garcia Vargas. The ten episodes are directed by Esther Rauch. The scripts are by head writer Mischa Zickler as well as Tom Eichtinger, Astrid Kiss and Fridolin Meinl. The series is expected to be shot in Vienna until March 2021. The Pichler family's living quarters were built in the Interspot studio.
