BosBros is the producer of the dramaseries Annie M.G., in which we follow the life of the seventy-year-old author Annie M.G. Schmidt.
Annie M.G. – her songs, her romances – is a love epic about her life. The series tells the story about a shy reverend’s daughter, born in the South-West of Holland, who grows up to be one of our most loved writers of the 20th century. Annie starts with an original post-war genre with her humorous and relativizing way of writing.
In her private life, Annie’s a searching, passionate woman, who falls in love with a married man. He has an affaire with her for years and they have a child together, when she’s rather old. A woman who craves love, putting everything on the line in order to make her man a happy man, until he takes his own life.
The existence of this ‘old’ Annie consists of talking to her deceased husband Dick and writing, which is what she lives for. Music, Dance and humor are the main criteria she sticks to in her work.
