The makers of the Ghent-based drama are ecstatic. “For us Gervais is God” they say. “That somebody of this calibre dispatches a tweet like this without being prompted is great.”
“I saw the tweet immediately and added him to our joint WhatsApp group” says producer Peter Brouckaert.
“He’s world class and is great at creating characters and storytelling. When somebody like him binges on our series and dispatches a compliment like that... That’s great.”
Script writer Sanne Nuyens adds: “I was in bed when I saw the tweet. I nearly fell out.”
Ricky even used the Flemish hashtag.
