Mascha van Erven had a long career in the development of drama series for national broadcast channels. For 8 years she was responsible for all scripted and unscripted content at Omroep MAX. Here she co-produced scripted series such as Moeder ik wil bij de revu, De Zaak Menten en Het geheime dagboek van Hendrik Groen. In 2017 she chose to specialize in scripted content only and made a transfer to the KRO- NCRV where she was Head of Drama. Here she co-produced series such as Hoe mijn keurige ouders in de bak belandde, Zina, Swanenburg and to be broadcasted later in 2022 Rampvlucht; a journalistic conspiracy thriller about de Bijlmerramp. Mascha was also involved as a producer for films like De Veroordeling and De Beentjes van St. Hildegard. Beginning of 2022 she was asked to join the Disney+ Benelux. 

Within Disney+ she is currently developing the first Dutch original scripted series Nemesis. An 8-crime series about greed and corruption in high profile organizations within the Dutch government system. But also a story about a woman standing tall in a men’s world. A high-quality and high profile Dutch spoken drama that can compete with the major titles of other European countries.
