In the series, the ‘normal family’ of Maud (Anne-Mieke Ruyten) and Gerard (Alfred van den Heuvel) are followed. The lovebirds met each other through a contact ad. Gerard cook, iron, clean and does the laundry. Maud works as a psychologist with a practice at home. The children Julia and Daan are from an earlier marriage. Daan is crazy about Julia, but she isn’t interested at all.
In the first two seasons the permanent cast is father Gerard, mother Maud, Maud’s daughter Julia and Gerard’s son Daan.
Gerard is played by Alfred van den Heuvel, Maud by Anne-Mieke Ruyten, Julia by Céline Purcell and Daan by Joey van der Velden.
The series is written by Haye van der Heyden. The director of the first season was Zdeněk Kraus (Also Toen was geluk heel gewoon). Later on the direction was by Hans de Korte, Bruun Kuijt, Betty Goes and Wil van der Meer. Sometimes Haye van der Heyden and Anne-Mieke Ruyten (Maud in the series) also co-directed.
