MÁXIMA is a six-part drama series (6×50 min) that explores the life of Queen Máxima of the Netherlands based on Marcia Luyten’s bestseller.

The series tells the fascinating life story of the Dutch Queen Máxima, from her early life in Argentina and New York to her future as the queen of the Netherlands. From the moment the beautiful Argentine Máxima appears at the Dutch Crown Prince’s side, she finds herself in the spotlight. But when Willem-Alexander asks her to marry him, the past catches up with her. Heated discussions erupt about her father’s political career in the Argentinian Videla regime – something she never faced in her own circles. Can Maxima stay true to herself without giving up her family – or do these things not go together?

‘Máxima’ is based on the book ‘Máxima Zorreguieta: Motherland’ by Marcia Luyten, published by De Bezige Bij. The series is produced by Rachel van Bommel for Millstreet Films, in co-production with FBO and Beta Film, with the support of the Dutch Film Fund Production Incentive, the Creative Europe MEDIA program, and the Belgian Tax Shelter. The series is directed by Saskia Diesing, Joosje Duk, and Iván López Núñez. The script is written by Marnie Blok, Ilse Ott, Judith Goudsmit, Diede Zillinger Molenaar, Sytske Kok, and Marcela Guerty.
