With Zeedijk we aim to create a top-tier international television drama with a touch of magic realism. Set in the 1970s, the show follows the lives of Surinamese, Chinese, Antillean, Turkish, and Moroccan immigrants living amongst people born and raised in Amsterdam. They try to make it in the most infamous part of the Red Light District, in a time when the city’s poverty and crime rates are at a peak.
Zeedijk is an ode to the migrants of Amsterdam, to the hope and resilience of the city and its people.
