The journalist Gil Bachrach and the director Tubi Neustadt launched the G.A.T. Film and Television Production in 1987. Following their motto “good entertainment is successful”, they transformed their creative ideas into an industry success in the following years. Today, the G.A.T. Film and TV Production is one of the leading German television entertainment entities.

The focus of the company lies in the development and production of entertainment formats: primetime entertainment, reality television, game shows as well as comedy and sitcoms. Additionally the spectrum of G.A.T. Film and TV also encompasses casting, concept, editorial and production consulting as well as event organization.

G.A.T. approaches its strive for high-quality television entertainment in two ways – through the adaptation of successful international television formats for German audiences and by developing new ideas and concepts.
