Our thriller ‘Red Light’ is now also beloved abroad! 

Federation Entertainment has finalized several major sales for our series ‘Red Light’, the intense thriller in the world of international prostitution, featuring three women at a turning point in their lives. Starring highly-acclaimed actresses Carice Van Houten (‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Black Book’, ‘Instinct’), Maaike Neuville (‘The Twelve’, ‘Ghost Tropic’), and Halina Reijn (‘Valkyrie’, ‘Instinct’).

‘Red light’ is coproduced by Eyeworks Film en TV Drama and Hollands Licht,  for VTM (Belgium) and NPO / BNNVARA (Netherlands). The series has done extremely well in both countries (ranking n°1 on VTM’s platform for a month).

Elsewhere in Europe, the series has been sold to AMC Iberia, NRK in Norway, Walter Presents in the United Kingdom, Pasaka in Lithuania and Turkcell in Turkey.

The series has received acclaimed reviews and several international prizes, including the Special Interpretation Prize and the Prix des Lycéens at CANNESSERIES 2020, as well as the “Gouden Kalf” for Best TV Drama at the Netherland Film Festival.

‘Red Light’ is based on an original idea by Halina Reijn and Carice Van Houten, and is directed by Wouter Bouvijn (who featured in the 2019 CANNESERIES for ‘The Twelve’) and Anke Blondé (‘The Best of Dorien B’).  The screenplay is written by author and novelist Esther Gerritsen (‘Instinct’) alongside Christophe Dirickx (‘Tabula Rasa’), Frank Ketelaar (‘StuckClamp’), and Halina Reijn, who plays Esther in the series.
