Disney+ has just ordered an adaptation of the Dutch crime novel Nemesis by Simon de Waal’s. The project, according to Deadline, will reportedly be the platform’s first-ever Dutch scripted original series.
The story follows a public prosecutor who, after a brutal murder of a key witness in her own house, decides to take matters into her own hands.
The series is expected to consist of eight episodes. William Bosch and Pieter Kuijpers, who have worked will serve as the series’ showrunners.
The project is an example of Disney’s ongoing efforts to produce more content representational of other countries. The company previously announced it intends to create at least 60 international originals by 2024. With this adaptation, it seems very much on track to do so.
While it’s unclear if the project will be available to stream in the United States, even with its incoming parental controls, when it is completed it’ll be available on STAR in international markets.
