Biography

Ed Herzog was born in Calw in the Black Forest on November 5, 1965. He studied at Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin (dffb) from 1991 to 1998 where he completed first short films like "Happy Weekend" (1994) and "Eine Schürze aus Speck" (1994). The former also served as a base for his debut feature "Happy Weekend" (1996) which preceded the multiple award-winning short "Ku'damm Security" (1997).

After graduating, Herzog first worked for TV, directing episodes for series such as "Himmel und Erde", "Der Fahnder" and "Der Elefant" as well as the made-for-TV feature "Bloch: Schwarzer Staub". In 2005, he made his second feature which he co-authored with Paul Herzberg, the transatlantic road movie "Almost Heaven" starring Heike Makatsch. Makatsch also starred in Herzog's third feature film "Schwesterherz" ("Twisted Sister", 2006) about a seemingly poised music producer who goes on holiday to Benidorm with her younger sister.

Then, Herzog turned to TV productions again for several years. He made a number of episodes for the crime series "Unter Verdacht", "Polizeiruf 110" and "Tatort" for which he also directed two entries of the Konstanz team Eva Mattes and Sebastian Bezzel.

It was only in 2013, seven years after "Schwesterherz", that Herzog returned to the big screen with "Dampfnudelblues" based on the novel by Rita Falk and starring Sebastian Bezzel as likable village cop Franz Eberhofer. In 2014, "Winterkartoffelknödel", another Eberhofer" crime caper, followed. Eventually, after shooting the Konstanz "Tatort" "Côte d'Azur" in 2015, Herzog made two more "Eberhofer" films: "Schweinskopf al dente" (2016) and "Grießnockerlaffäre"(2017).
