Private Project


In this comedy webseries, the young medicine freshman Robin, still anxious about the challenges of adulthood, depends on the energetic support of his experienced flatmates to cope with the tumultous events of a hungover sunday.

„Newbie“ is a 6-part comedy webseries about Robin, a college freshman who just commenced his medicine studies and moved into his first student digs. Still overwhelmed by his new independence, it's up to his flatmates to dispel his self-doubts. The genius organizer Jona, the fatherly teacher trainee Taylan, the crafty nerd Lexi and the hotheaded revolutionary Janik are already troupers of college life and stand by their protégé by all available means during the events of a chaotic sunday.
