Welcome to Upgrade, TV & Film products for the 21st Century.
An international collaboration born out of the spirit of producing impactful, insightful, always emotional, sometimes educational and intentionally inspirational entertainment to as wide an audience as possible.
Upgrade Productions Ltd., founded in March 2007, is the international joint venture between Stampfwerk GmbH of Hamburg, Germany, and international entrepreneur Robert Stein-Rostaing.
Producers of high quality television in Germany for over 20 years and having delivered over 3000hrs of broadcast, the late Günter Stampf and Susanne Stampf-Sedlitzky, teamed up with business partner Robert Stein-Rostaing in order to expand their reach into international markets. Upgrade Productions was born as an Ideas House and also to bring their highly successful TV, Film and cross-media productions (books, DVDs and audio books) into the UK, USA, Canada and on to the rest of the world.
With a focus on informative, emotional and game-changing television, Upgrade Productions has re-developed existing Stampfwerk formats as well as devised many original TV, Film and cross-media concepts for the international market. As of September 2011 Upgrade also has an artist management division.
Stampfwerk is one of the largest TV producers in Germany and the german-speaking territories and in 2009 has been recognsied as Kings of the Scripted Reality genre with their runaway ratings success for RTL, "The School Investigators" ("Die Schulermittler"), the first scripted reality series anywhere to achieve such ratings, produced in conjunction with Upgrade which sold the format rights internationally.
