Lars Montag was born in Bünde on April 23, 1971. From 1990 until 1992, he was trained in radio and TV engineering in Nuremberg, and from 1992 until 1994, he worked as a camera assistant at the WDR network in Cologne. In 1994, he enrolled at the Kunsthochschule für Medien in Cologne.

After graduating with the award-winning eleven-minute short "Lenas Land" (1999), Montag started working for different TV networks. Between 2001 and 2003, he also worked on stage productions. As a writer and director for TV, he helmed a wide range of projects, including the teen comedy "Küssen verboten, Baggern erlaubt" (2003), the satire "Willkommen in Lüsgraf" (2006), the romantic comedy "Nur ein kleines bisschen schwanger" (2007) and several "Tatort" entries. His script (co-written by Stephan Falk) for the "Tatort" episode "Kassensturz" (2009), which he also directed, was nominated for a German Television Award and won the ver.di Medienpreis.
