Ten Episode Women-Driven Series Based on a Script by Carice van Houten
(Game of Thrones) and Halina Reijn (Instinct)
The award-winning ten part Belgian/Dutch co-production, Red Light will air on Amazon Prime beginning March 22, 2022. It is one of the several ambitious series distributed by Paris-based Federation Entertainment, alongside the thrillers Amsterdam Vice, The Bureau, Bad Banks, and Around the World in 80 Days.
Red Light is the latest production from Carice van Houten’s (Game of Thrones) and Halina Reijn’s (Instinct) production company Man Up along with Eyeworks and Hollands Licht.
The pair co-stars alongside Maaike Neuville, as three women whose lives are shaped by their involvement in the world of prostitution and sex trafficking when Esther’s husband—a philosophy professor–disappears. Sylvia, a prostitute, runs a brothel with her shady boyfriend/pimp. Esther is a well-known opera singer who comes from a wealthy environment. Evi is a policewoman trying to combine working a major case with being a mother. These three women with completely different backgrounds soon find out they need one another in the difficult situations they’re trapped in, as they battle their own personal demons and society’s expectations.
