Astrid Hamdan loves it that of her bestseller Judas a American tv-series is created. This says Oscar Vera of her Publisher Lebowski. He says the Publishing House received a dozen bids from Hollywood producers who had interest in the tv rights.

Of the book are in Netherlands for more than 500,000 copies sold. "The book does very well in women and also abroad, where Willem Holleeder is not known, will score the story of Astrid. Every country has its own Willem Holleeder, but nowhere have Astrid Hamdan, "said Velasquez. "That speaks to publishers, but also Hollywood. Astrid finds it wonderful that people are interested in her story. "
It is not yet known when the series goes into production and is broadcast. The English-language version of the book appears in the spring of 2018 in booksellers. "Judas is a really gripping, true story with crazy characters who jump from the pages, an intense family drama and an emotional and personal insight," say Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey of Amblin Television. "When we heard of one night, after a story, we saw the potential for a beautiful television series immediately," said Charles Roven and Richard Suckle from Atlas Entertainment. Atlas produced with Wonder Woman one of the hitfilms of this year.
