Banijay on the run with new Dutch drama  Bonnie & Clyde

Banijay today announces Bonnie & Clyde, the first drama series commission 
from rebranded Dutch label, Banijay Benelux Scripted, formerly known as

Bonnie & Clyde is a four-part mini-series for local streamer, Videoland, and tells
the tale of two young, rambunctious lovers and their violent quest for freedom.
The narrative is inspired by a is co-true story named Bonnie & Clyde in the
press, which captivated the whole of the Netherlands in February 2014.

In the series, with only a few months left in juvenile detention, Esra Kaplan
decides not to return to custody after a dramatic leave visit to her Turkish
family. Instead, she and her boyfriend Greg Driessen go on the run. For the first
time in their lives, Esra and Greg are free from everything and everyone, but
with crimes going from bad to worse, they become known as the “Bonnie &
Clyde of the Low Countries”. Will they escape and start over together - or will
they eventually be overtaken by their past?

Banijay Rights, and will be among the company’s autumn highlights. Further
