Rifka Lodeizen and Teun Luijkx star in new crime series PHOENIX (FENIX)
Rifka Lodeizen and Teun Luijkx will play the leads in the new eight-part crime series PHOENIX, produced by Lemming Film in cooperation with KPN Presents.
In PHOENIX Jara (Rifka Lodeizen) and Rens (Teun Luijkx) return to the south of Holland to confront the demons of their pasts.
The series is directed by Shariff Korver (Penoza, Black Tulip II, Klem, the Intruder), head-writer is Marco van Geffen (Schnitzel Paradise, Among Us, Black Tulip II).
In PHOENIX the fading border between those who uphold the law in the south (Brabant) and the criminals who don’t, is revealed. Brabant, where toxic waste is dumped in the fields and XTC-labs are run in pig farms, but also where politicians and law enforcers are closely connected to the criminals. Slowly Jara and Rens are getting more and more entangled in the criminal and judiciary web that is reaching from Brabant to the harbours of Antwerp and the Spanish Costa del Sol.
Producer Fleur Winters: "We are proud that with PHOENIX, we again have the opportunity to produce a high quality TV series,with a strong recognizable Dutch theme with the ambition to also appeal to a broad international audience, just as the series HOLLANDS HOPE. We are extremely happy that we are working on this project with talented creatives such as Shariff Korver, Marco van Geffen and the rest of the writers and crew and committing Rifka Lodeizen en Teun Luijkx as leading actors to the show. We are looking forward to announce the rest of the cast the upcoming months."
PHOENIX is produced by Lemming Film in cooperation with KPN Presents. Filming will start February 2017. The series are eight episodes of 50 minutes and will be available at KPN Presenteert.
