The romantic comedy, starring Maren Eggert and Dan Stevens, will focus on the relationship between a woman and a humanoid robot. German actress-screenwriter-director Maria Schrader, whose 2020 Netflix miniseries Unorthodox earned her the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series this year, is currently working on her next directorial effort, a television production. The romantic comedy I’m Your Man, scripted by Schrader and Jan Schomburg, and based on a short story by Emma Braslavsky, will focus on Alma, a scientist working at the prestigious Pergamon Museum in Berlin. The need to fund her own research makes her determined to take part in an unusual study: she agrees to live with a robot with a humanoid appearance, who is programmed to be suitable for her character and needs. Maren Eggert, known for playing the lead in Angela Schanelec’s Marseille, will star as Alma, alongside British actor Dan Stevens.
