Just a day after the format was announced RTLtwo his plans for a new one docu-soap with the controversial pop singer Michael Wendler again stopped. “The planned docu-soap with Michael Wendler and Laura Müller will not be produced and broadcast for RTLzwei,” said the broadcaster on Wednesday. The reason given was that the “vehemence of the reactions was noticed” and that the voices of the audience were taken seriously.
“We apologize if we have hurt feelings here,” said the private broadcaster. “Bild” had previously reported. RTLzwei only announced on Tuesday that it wanted to broadcast a new program with Wendler and his wife about their pregnancy. That was met with widespread criticism.
