Who is the real-life drug lord behind Netflix kingpin Ferry Bouman?

Undercover, a long-running crime story on Netflix, is a gripping, gritty, and often darkly comedic show that was based on true events.

Pretending to be a couple, two brave secret agents sneak into a drug lord’s private area.

Frank Lammars plays Ferry Bouman, the drug lord based on a real Dutch crime boss, and his business is broken into by an undercover couple who want to build a case against him.

Tom Waes, Anna Drijver, and Frank Lammars are the stars of the show.

Ferry Bouman is based on the real-life Dutch drug lord Janus van Wessenbeeck, who was a bad guy and a figure of fear. The show also gets its ideas from the story of how he fell from power.

Bouman lives on the border between the Netherlands and Belgium in the show and is presented as a drug lord who makes a lot of ecstasy tablets.
