Walter Presents is getting into the World Cup spirit this summer with a new footballing drama.
On the eve of the Women’s World Cup final, Walter Presents will drop The Score, a compelling family saga set against the backdrop of Dutch premier football. It follows two brothers who share the same dream of becoming football stars, but when only one of them is selected to play for a top team, their family is torn apart and they discover that sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for.
When a talent scout attends his football match, Alan Moerman is thrilled to be offered a trial for a premier league club. However, when Alan turns up for training it transpires that there was a mix-up and the scout actually wanted his brother, Dennis. Alan’s dream is shattered while he watches his brother fulfil his destiny. Meanwhile, Dennis is suddenly catapulted into the glamorous yet deceitful world of top-class football where money is everything and sex, lies and corruption are the norm. When Dennis hits crisis point, he realises that’s when you need your family most. But with Alan stuck at home, his bitterness spirals into destructive behaviour and he finds himself drawn into the world of crime. With both brothers finding themselves the victims of success and failure, will their love for each other turn out to be stronger than the call of money and fame?
Viewers may recognise Marc Lauwrys, who plays the talent scout, from Walter Presents crime series Code 37: Sex Crimes, and Lynn Van Royen, playing Dennis’ girlfriend, as Paula Liekens from The Team.
Season 1 and 2 are both released online on Walter Presents on 5th July, serving up 20 episodes of Belgian binge-worthy drama.
