Bij ons in de Jordaan





A series, based on a biography of Johnny Jordaan, about the eventful life of most popular Dutch singer. It begins when Johnny, a singing waiter poorly paid, enters a contest in hotel Krasnapolski.

He does a suicide attempt, his marriage dissolves and his friendship with Wim Sonneveld comes to an end. In a few years he transforms into an early old, ailing man. But then he's approached for a gig at a big party in the Jordaan ...
