About Us

Maxi Media GmbH is a music and TV production company founded in 1987 by Jürgen Hohmann.

About the founder Jürgen Hohmann:
"Versatility" is probably the best way to describe the recipe for success of TV and music producer Jürgen Hohmann. Not only does he produce various music groups and TV shows, but over the years he has also demonstrated a special instinct for talent. He is considered one of the co-discoverers of "Anastacia", discovered and brought bands such as "4 The Cause" and "The Moffatts" to international breakthrough and was one of the first to support the "Rhythms del Mundo" project. After his studies, Jürgen Hohmann went straight to EMI. There he has already worked with national and international greats such as BAP, Howard Carpendale, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple and Queen. In 1987, directly after his time at EMI, Jürgen Hohmann founded MAXI MEDIA Medienberatung- und Produktionsgesellschaft GmbH.

In the TV area, the company started with the "Golden Europe", followed by various programs such as "Popkomm Gala", "Stars", "dieAids-Gala", "Pavarotti & Friends", "IFA Night", "Hitgiganten" or "Chartbreakhotel “. From 2012, Maxi Media concentrated on formats that portray artists with a history of anniversaries. "Thank you for the Music - 40 Years Abba" and "25 Years BAD - The Michael Jackson Phenomenon", broadcast on VOX, made the start. As a result, the documentaries were continuously expanded ("Stayin' Alive - 50 Years Bee Gees", "Jennifer Aniston - Hollywood's Lonely Dream Woman" and "We Are The Champions - 40 Years Queen"; all VOX) and in 2014 five productions (" ABBA -40 Years Waterloo", "Simply The Best - 40 Years Tina Turner" and "The Boy Group Phenomenon"), on VOX as well as "60 Years Rock & Pop" and "30 Years Modern Talking - The Whole Truth", broadcast on RTL .

The successful content forge pays particular attention to monothematic documentaries such as the 2019 "I wish you love without suffering - 85 years Udo Jürgens", the NITRO productions "Metallica - 30 years the black album" (2021), "Listen To Your Heart - The Roxette Story" (2020) or the VOX documentary "Elvis is alive!", which was broadcast at the beginning of 2015 - moderated by Andreas Gabalier, on the occasion of Elvis' 80th birthday. In the same year, the hit series "Pop Giganten" started on RTL 2 with a special about Boney M. Elton John", "Pop Giants - ABBA" and many more.

Not to be forgotten: the hit! Hard to imagine in Germany without it and a ubiquitous genre. The owner-managed company with productions such as “I find Schlager great” (RTLup), “The Schlager Phenomenon” (VOX) and “Schlager ist mein Leben” (VOX) depicts this just as completely as the personality documentaries of “Absolut” series by RTL ("Absolutely Dieter Bohlen", "Absolutely Maite Kelly" and "Absolutely Mike Singer").
The ranking documentary formats are another TV treat from Maxi Media. The strengths here are interesting stories combined with entertaining guests and of course lots of music. Representative of this are the "Soundtracks for Eternity" (NITRO), as well as the 4-hour VOX documentary highlights, such as "This is how Germany sounds", "Viva Cuba - On the trail of Buena Vista with Alvaro Soler and Nico Santos" and "Schlager - Right now."

On the music side, too, the repertoire is wide-ranging: with hits by artists such as "Paul Anka" and "B3" as well as compilation CDs for the TV programs from Maxi Media, including the very successful "Hit Giganten" series or the one published a few years ago "Wetten,dass...?" Compilation, there is something for every taste.

Thanks to the very good international contacts of Maxi Media, it has always been possible, also from Germany, to establish artists both in other European countries and on the American market. In 2010, Maxi Media released an African-American crossover production in the United States called "Vai DaCapo". To accompany the release, the band's concerts were broadcast on more than 70 American TV stations. The Italian/Canadian soprano “Giorgia Fumanti” also comes from the crossover area and was able to sign a worldwide contract with Universal Canada. Giorgia Fumanti is a singer who is particularly well-known and valued in Asia and America. Despite her classical training, she also dares to perform world-famous pop and rock songs. The latest Maxi Media crossover project “The Italian Tenors” was released on May 25, 2012 by Koch Universal Music. After the debut album "That's Amore" successfully placed in the charts, the second album entitled "Viva La Vita" followed in 2014.
