Trivia

Was originally supposed to air on 2nd April, 2015 on German channel RTL. However, the TV-release of the movie was indefinitely delayed due to the crash of Germanwings Flight 9525 on 24th March, 2015. German co-pilot Andreas Lubitz purposely locked the pilot out of the cockpit before initiating a descent that caused the aircraft to crash into Massif des Trois-Évêchés, killing not only himself, but also all 144 passengers and 5 other crew members.
