“Dirty Lines starts in 1987 in Amsterdam, at a time when Dutch society was changing rapidly. Psychology student Marly Salomon takes on a side job working for a brand new firm: Teledutch – a company started by two brothers, Frank and Ramon Stigter, who established Europe’s first erotic telephone lines.

The final years of the Cold War sparked a sense of hope and inspired a new generation to celebrate life to its fullest. Amsterdam became the centre of that cultural revolution with a radically new form of music: house and a new love drug: XTC. The erotic phone lines offer the opportunity to experience anonymous sex in a new way, changing the morality of its consumers, but also very much the people creating it.”

Other details

The series is based on 06-Cowboys, a novella by Fred Saueressig.


As the popularity of everything counter-cultural grows in Holland, Ramon and Frank Stigter begin a business of erotic phone lines which makes them rich and famous overnight. Marly, one of their employees, gets increasingly involved in the company’s and the world’s wild transformation.
