International co-production with young talent

The series was made by Flemish production company jonnydepony, based on an idea by Tom Timmerman, together with Flemish production company Free Kings. Hawa & Adam was supported by the Flemish Audiovisual Fund (VAF).

Hawa & Adam was co-produced with German partners Network Movie, WDR and kids network Kika. The programme will therefore later be shown in Germany. Distributor APC Kids handles the international distribution.

Today, VRT joins forces with a lot of international partners for different genres. This fiction series for Ketnet with an entirely Dutch-speaking cast was successfully received by the German public broadcaster for a co-production, which is unique for this type of programme. This way, we can directly give local talent an international audience.
