Amsterdam and Hollywood -- 22 November 2017 - Netflix announces Undercover, its first Belgian/Dutch co-produced series starring Anna Drijver (Komt een vrouw bij de dokter, Bride Flight, Loft), Frank Lammers (Zwartboek, Michiel de Ruyter, Rundskop), Elise Schaap (Valentino, Ja, ik wil!

One of the largest ecstasy producers in the world, Ferry Bouman, lives a charmed life in his villa on the Dutch-Belgian border. But things start to change when two undercover agents move into his territory, attempt to infiltrate Bouman's life and shut down his network.

Undercover is a fictional crime series inspired by a series of real life events. Undercover is produced by Jan Theys (Salamander), writer and showrunner Nico Moolenaar (Vermist) and directed by Eshref Reybrouck (Cordon) and Frank Devos (Chaussée D'amour). The series stars Anna Drijver, Frank Lammers, Tom Waes (Nieuw Texas, Tegen de sterren op), Elise Schaap (Valentino, Ja, ik wil! Familie Kruys), Raymond Thiry (Penoza, Wolf & The Paradise Suite), Tim Haars (New Kids Turbo, Fake), Kevin Janssens (The Ardennes, Vermist) and Huub Smit (New Kids, Riphagen & Bro's Before Ho's).

Netflix is partnering with production company De Mensen (Blockx, The Dare, Hotel Beau Sejour), Dutch Filmworks and VRT to premiere Undercover to Netflix members globally, except for France, Germany, Belgium, Austria, and Switzerland where Netflix will be following local broadcasters.

Nico Moolenaar, showrunner said "I'm extremely proud and excited to be part of Netflix's first Belgian/Dutch co-production. With stars like Frank Lammers, Anna Drijver, Tom Waes, Elise Schaap, Kevin Janssens amongst others, we unite the biggest talents of both countries. Netflix has given us the opportunity to share this international, thrilling, funny and sexy story with a worldwide audience"

"We are excited to work with Nico, Jan, their fantastic team at De Mensen, VRT and Dutch Filmworks to bring Undercover to Netflix members globally and we are particularly thrilled to be premiering the show in The Netherlands" said Kai Finke from Netflix.
