ANNE+ is a relatable story about the turbulent love life of a young lesbian woman in her twenties in Amsterdam. The pilot season of the series received a lot of Dutch media coverage due to the positive representation of LGBTQ+ characters, characters without a focus on their sexual identity or coming-out. ANNE+ tells a universal, contemporary story about love and coming of age.

In the second season the graduated 24-year-old Anne still doesn’t know exactly what she wants and stumbles through life. Surrounded by her good friends, she tries to find her way and learns to accept that not everything turns out as she once thought it would.

ANNE+ season 2 will consist of 8 x 25 Minute episodes which will air on prime time TV in the Netherlands in 2020.

The series is doing well internationally, being selected by amongst others: Series Mania (short form competition) in France, Netherlands Film Festival (debut competition), Tribeca (N.O.W. program) in New York, and Inside Out Festival in Toronto
