NL Film Dramas Find Global Slots


Four dramas from Banijay’s NL Film venture have landed slots across the globe, including the ten-part thriller Commandos.

Produced by NL Film and commissioned by AVROTROS, the Dutch hit has been picked up by SBS in Australia and TOPIC for the U.S. and Canada.

Made for NPO 3, The Columnist has been sold to Film Movement (U.S. and Canada), Prio Spain, Vertigo Film (U.K., Australia and New Zealand) and Evrit (South Korea).

Floor Rules, a kids’ drama, has traveled to KiKA, Canal+ France, VRT in Belgium, DR, NRK and TV Catalunya.

NPO Zapp’s Remy and Juliyat, commissioned by AVROTROS, is headed to YLE and RTV Slovenia.

“It’s great to see our diverse portfolio capturing more and more attention beyond its national borders,” said Kaja Wolffers, creative director and producer at NL Film. “We are proud that the work of these creators is now visible outside the Netherlands, and hope the growing exposure continues to put future NL Film projects in the spotlight.”
