The shooting period of our new telefim Project Herbert started on the 18th of March.

The film is written by Gaby Cochavi, Inge Sonderen and Roos van der Werff (Pink Robin Stories), directed by Barbara Bredero, with Thomas Höppener in the titular role, and starring Celia van den Boogert, Faye Kimmijser, Isabelle Kafando, André Dongelmans, Harvey Elgood, Coen Bril, Yip Andjar, Nazmiye Oral and others.

When reserved municipal official Herbert(40) is finally evicted from his parental home by his mother, he encounters a disheartening housing market. After several frantic attempts, he is accepted, by mistake, into a student house, where the vibrant and chaotic student life turns not only his world, but also that of the students, permanently upside down.

We shoot on location in Vlaardingen, Middelie, Badhoevedorp, Duivendrecht and Amsterdam, among other places. In co-production with AVROTROS, supported by CoBO, expected on NPO3 in late 2024/early 2025.
