His second feature, WEG VAN JOU (2017), starring Katja Herbers (Evil) and Maarten Heijmans, received critical acclaim. Leading Dutch newspaper Volkskrant: “This is the romcom The Netherlands has been waiting for.”
Recently, Jelle directed several popular Dutch TV series such as NIEUWE BUREN SEASON 4, LUIZENMOEDER SEASON 2, HARKUM and LIEVE MAMA.
