The series turns on three best friends who live fast, glamorous lives, while building their careers, struggling and helping each other along the way, explained Annemieke van Vliet, Endemol Shine Netherlands’ creative producer.

“Girls from the Herengracht” will be the first international adaptation of “Lipstick Jungle,” pointed out Hannah Worrall, VP of format sales and production for NBCUniversal International Formats.
