Thirteen-part television series about the editors of the 'up-market' weekly De Ster, written by Jelte Rep and Felix Thijssen. The episode Een valse Lady was screened at the Netherlands Film Festival. In this episode, the magazine is tipped off that the pride and joy of the Sauté auction house, a real Stradivarius violin called Lady Quincy, is not the genuine article. One of the reporters pretends to be an art collector and through the auction house he gets onto the trail of the dubious art dealer Tirofles. He finds out that the Lady Quincy is indeed a forgery and writes a sensational cover story for the weekly.
