BNNVARA is working on a new drama series based on the Flemish hit Dertigers , a spokesperson for NU.nl said on Thursday. It is still unclear when the series will be shown.
The Flemish, fictional series is about six friends (all thirty or older) in Antwerp, who say goodbye to casual life in their twenties and are confronted with adult problems.
The series has been on the Belgian channel One since January of this year. The first season consisted of 24 episodes and attracted around half a million viewers. A second season is currently being prepared.
The BNNVARA spokesperson says that the Dutch version will be an adaptation of the Flemish series.
Series broadcast on time slot Pauw and Jinek
On Wednesday evening, RTL Boulevard announced that the series will be broadcast in the current time slot of Pauw and Jinek , but the BNNVARA spokesperson cannot confirm that. The two talk shows would be broadcast earlier in the evening according to the current affairs program of RTL.
The management of Eva Jinek announced some time ago that the presenter asked her employer to bring forward the starting time of her program in due course.
Upon request, an NPO spokesperson informs NU.nl that any changes to the range of programs will be announced and explained during the coming autumn presentation.
