He also starred in Maggie Peren’s movie “Die Farbe des Ozeans”, which has been awarded the Bernhard-Wicki-Film-Award in 2011, followed by the big-screen movie “Ludwig II.” by Peter Sehr and Marie Noélle. Currently, Friedrich Mücke stars in the TNT show “Add a friend”, under the direction of Tobi Baumann.
