Netflix brings Belgian crime drama Undercover to global audience

Netflix is bringing the Belgian crime drama Undercover to audiences around the globe. The10-part crime series about two undercover agents who prepare themselves for the longest and most dangerous mission of their career. Their task? To befriend this gangster and his entourage, seduce him to set up a deal and ultimately wind up his network.

Undercover takes place in the Belgian province of Limburg, the so-called ‘Colombia of ecstasy,’ where more than 500 million pills with a street value of $2.25 billion are exported every year. As a result, the region also suffers from exploding drug labs, executions in broad daylight and chemical waste dumps. This is where Undercover comes in, telling its fictional story about real problems.

European drama has attracted everyone’s attention. Therefore we are very pleased that Undercover is the first Netflix Original from our country, and that Netflix invests in high-end foreign language drama. We hope that fans of Breaking Bad, Narcos and The Sopranos discover the series and embark on a new binge adventure,” said Pieter Van Huyck, executive producer and head of scripted programming at De Mensen.

De Mensen’s Ivy Vanhaecke executive produces along with Van Huyck.
