According to its statutes, its purpose is

  • to promote the development of German television as an essential component of German culture and the German cultural industry and to preserve its diversity
  • to encourage, strengthen and cultivate discussion and the exchange of ideas and experience between German television professionals, especially between freelancers and those employed by broadcasters
  • to lead the discourse on content and economic aspects of German television.

The chairman is actor Michael Brandner.[3] His four deputies are screenwriter Jochen Greve, casting director Cornelia von Braun, set designer Frank Godt, and producer Stephan Ottenbruch from the television entertainment sector. Producer Frank Döhmann will assume the office of treasurer. The producer Gerhard Schmidt is the President of the Academy.[4]

Of the 23 sections that had been planned (including direction, screenplay, music, documentary, acting, image design, sound design),[5] some were constituted. The number of members is 800.[4]

Every two months a nationwide “Jour fixe” takes place in the cities of Berlin, Cologne, Hamburg and Munich.

According to Vice Chairman Jochen Greve, one of the founding intentions was that “television should not be left to the broadcasters alone”[6] The intention was rather: “We want to be a voice of the creative. We want to give people dignity.”[7][8]

In May 2018, the association participated in the establishment of the Themis-Vertrauensstelle gegen sexuelle Belästigung and Gewalt (Trust Centre against sexual harassment and violence).[9]
