Pupkin launches new label DOCS by Pupkin, expanding its (international) slate of high-end drama with documentaries. DOCS by Pupkin works together with experienced film makers as well as emerging documentary talent.

Since 2003, Pupkin has built a strong reputation, creating quality drama for both public broadcasters and international streamers such as Viaplay,

Netflix and Disney+. Amongst others, Pupkin produced series Van God Los, Riphagen and most recently The Spectacular. In 2018 Pupkin produced its first documentary film Nao ‘t Zuuje. The film premiered in Limburg and was followed by a successful theatrical release, reaching more than 60,000 visitors. The (repeated) television airings are consistently well viewed. Recently, Pupkin produced the historical docudrama series Het Verhaal van Nederland in collaboration with Tuvalu Media.

With this experience, DOCS by Pupkin strives to tell human stories about the unique ánd the ordinary in a visual attractive way. The label will be creatively led by producer Aster Reinboud. She has been with Pupkin since 2014 and has worked on the development of several series and films. DOCS by Pupkin is currently developing various projects with filmmakers including Marlies Smeenge (Traag naar de Hemel, Door de Bomen), Dennis Alink (Freek, Unknown Brood), Stijn Bouma (Alleen Tegen de Staat) and Miriam Guttmann (Het Zaad van Karbaat).

Aster Reinboud: “Following our previous productions with a strong link to reality, DOCS by Pupkin is a dreamed next step. Documentaries have the special power to make us look at the world from new perspectives. With our documentaries, I’m looking forward to spark social conversations, as well as showing where we struggle with everyday life. Where we lose each other – and ourselves – ánd where we find each other again.”
