‘Hertenkamp’ was a long running, stunning, ‘sitcamp’ produced by theatre group ‘Mugmetdegoudentand’ about a very diverse group of individuals living together under one roof. Long before any of this was trendy, these 30 episodes of 25 minute tv drama tackled subjects ranging from gay marriage, mental illness to new age nudism. And all of this with a dry wit that has since then become a point of reference on Dutch tv.
Winner of a ‘Premio Ondas’ for best European comedy and a special ‘Gouden Kalf’ for best tv series in the Netherlands.
Directors: Pieter Kramer (showrunner), Antoinette Beumer and Jonathan Herman.
Following up on the succes of ‘Hertenkamp’, this 9 part, 25 minute comedy show took viewers behind the scenes of an ailing broadcasting company where producers, presenters and celebrities would stop at nothing to keep the boat afloat. Not only starring the cast of the illustrious theatre group ‘Mugmetdegoudentand’, but also a whole group of Dutch celebrities playing their own sweet selves. Many of the fake formats were actually mimicked and produced.
Directors: Jonathan Herman (showrunner) and Gerardjan Rijnders
