Stars auf Eis (Stars on Ice): Series 1 and 2

The participants in the new ProSieben show “Stars auf Eis – von und mit Katarina Witt” (“Stars on Ice – produced and hosted by Katarina Witt”) have already achieved outstanding success as ice skaters. Top German-speaking professional figure skaters, including reigning German champion Annette Dytrt and world champion Denise Biellmann, and nine celebrities – some of whom successful sports personalities themselves – took to the ice.

The professional panel of judges was joined by Jeanette Biedermann; while “taff” presenter Stefan Gödde donned his skates to join host and co-producer Katarina Witt as co-presenter. Each celebrity was partnered up with a professional figure skater. With Witt Sports & Entertainment GmbH was able to sign up for ProSieben Germany’s top young professional figure skaters, who lent their support on the ice to the brave and determined and committed celebrities.

Series 2 of „Stars auf Eis“ was shown on ProSieben in 2007/2008, with more than one million fans tuning in regularly to Katarina Witt and Elisabeth Gottmann’s show that transforms figure-skating fans into actual figure skaters. Together with co-presenter Olli Petszokat, winner of Series 1, Katarina Witt presented a show packed with funny, painful and unforgettable experiences on the ice.

Production of “Stars on Ice”

The concept of “Stars auf Eis” originated in the US. The original format, under the name “Skating with Celebrities”, was first broadcast on the Fox network in January 2006. ProSieben commissioned With Witt Sports & Entertainment GmbH to adapt the American format for German television; the resulting format was co-produced with Werner Kimmig TV-Produktion GmbH. With Witt Sports & Entertainment GmbH took on management of the TV show content, and Katarina Witt also hosted the show as a professional, and the obvious, host.
