Production is underway at a UK studio this week for History of a Pleasure Seeker, a pilot for Hulu set in Amsterdam in the early 1900s.

The pilot will be delivered as a one-hour musical drama and is written by Richard Mason, who is adapting his own novel of the same name. Julie Ann Robinson is director; she also exec produces alongside Mason.

The story takes place in Amsterdam in 1907 and centres on Piet Barol, played by Callum Kerr, a young man with a penchant for hedonism.

When his mother dies, Piet finds himself tutoring the troubled child of a wealthy Amsterdam family, and must navigate his way through the temptations of his new, glittering lifestyle, played out against the backdrop of the Belle Epoque. Carla Woodcock co-stars. 

ABC Signature is producing the pilot with Fremantle and Hat Trick Productions. Exec producers are Mason, Robinson, Michael Gracey, Jimmy Mulville and composer Christopher Read.
