We believe our projects speak for themselves. Take a look at our selected projects

The Boy Next Door

The Boy Next Door

She’s thirty and really attractive. But against her will she’s still very single. Too busy with work and way too critical. There’s any number of reasons, but it’s mainly because she just hasn’t found that fantastic guy. At least, not until now!
Luckily for her and for love, She’s a candidate in: The Boy Next Door.

In The Boy Next Door we follow a woman who has exactly twenty-four hours to find her dream man. The show takes place in a circular studio with three attractive men.
All rooms have their own unique atmosphere because the men have personalized them with personal items such as their own beds, sofas, photos, clothes, books and a special personal item (wine rack, darts, poster of the children).
The rooms reflect the personality of the men who all want to seduce our single lady. With who will she drink a cup of tea? Or maybe more important….. with whom will she spent the night? After twenty-four hours, who will she choose? And… Will he also choose her?

Face to Face

Face to Face

Words play the main role in almost every conflict. We blame each other, we throw accusations back and forth. Often things only go from bad to worse. We let the conflict grow, until the overriding feeling is that ‘there is nothing else to be said’. Then we never want to see each other again and everything seems lost. Things will never get better. Except in Face to Face… the program where you can make up: starting by looking each other in the eyes.

In Face to Face, people want to get back together with someone who means a lot to them but who they fell out with because of a misunderstanding, row or accusation. So much time has passed that the barrier to making contact again is too high. And there are people who no longer talk because it always turns into an argument. As talking wasn’t the answer in the past, in Face to Face people start by just sitting opposite each other, without talking: a proven method in many types of therapy.

Who’s On Top

 

A fusion of game and variety show, Who’s on Top? is a unique and up-lifting new entertainment format where the stakes are high! Instantly eye catching, it sees three contestants suspended in “air pods” which are scaling in-studio towers five stories high, faced with fun trivia questions to which only two answers apply e.g. “more” or “less”, “true” or “false”. If answered correctly, the contestant’s air pod springs to life and quickly ascends to the next level of the tower accumulating money as it goes, but if wrong, they plummet all the way to the basement level, leaving only their head peeking above the floor until the next round. The goal of the game is to keep climbing and make sure you’re on top, because only the player who is at the highest level will make it to final round and play for the chance to win all the money accumulated by the three players throughout the game.

De Dokters is a medical talkshow hosted by medical specialists who cover a range of subjects and respond to questions from real people. De Dokters provides viewers with reliable and fascinating medical and health advice from a distinguished panel of ‘on- call’ professionals. They give the answers in an entertaining and informative way. This is a ‘doing’ show rather than just a ‘sitting around and talking’ show.

Recht van Nederland

This programme brings the court’s decisions into the living room. Courts hand down hundreds of judgments every day. Recht van Nederland finds the most remarkable and newsworthy decisions. They may relate to serious crimes or to minor offences that the viewer can relate to directly; bribery, disputes between neighbours, divorces, scams, murder, fraud… and so on. Recht van Nederland  is presented by two hosts. Each episode consists of one main item and two or three smaller ones, always seeking a balance between serious, often sensational, items and minor offences that could affect any of us. The reporters are on site, explaining the situation, which a legal expert in the studio comments on. Most crime and law shows raise questions: Who did it? Why? And why is the sentence so lenient? Recht van Nederland gives the answers. No further questions, case closed.

Club 27

Club 27

Jimi Hendrix. Kurt Cobain. Amy Winehouse. Jim Morrison. Janis Joplin. Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones. They all died at 27. And, amazingly, there are many others. We’ll take you on an extraordinary road trip through the final years of the members of the mysterious Club 27 – a club you don’t want to join. In each of eight episodes, the host explores the final year of a pop, rock or soul legend who died at the age of 27. The journey takes him to key places in that last year and he meets people who have a story to tell.

Moslima’s: Geloof Hoop en Liefde

Moslima’s: Geloof Hoop en Liefde

Moslima’s: Geloof Hoop en Liefde is a short documentary about Muslim women in the Netherlands. What challenges do they face here? Can they stand up for themselves and express their individuality within a culture that does not grant them the same freedom as men? A culture that considers marriage to be the cornerstone of society and women the pillars of marriage. In frank interviews, our show host talks with three Muslim women; one single, one married and one divorced, about belief, hope and, of course, love.

Het Is Je Gegund

Het Is Je Gegund

We all know a close relative who works hard, but never has the time or money to do something for himself. Het Is Je Gegund (You Deserve It) gives these people the recognition for their work. Host Maureen du Toit will surprise our heroes together with the person who wrote the letter. Together they will take on a funny but hard job, in order to earn a nice amount of cash. How will our hero react to the fact that one of their close ones worked a whole day for a small present? Why? “Because you deserved it”.
