Last year, van Hove teamed with John Wells to develop Doll at Warner Bros. Television. The project is described as a psychological thriller series set in the ruthless world of a modern music conservatory. The former’s artistic collaborator, Jan Versweyveld, was set to serve as production and lighting designer on the project, which marks the duo’s first foray into scripted television.

The director’s stage work also includes adaptations of Hanya Yanagihara’s A Little Life, David Bowie’s Lazarus, Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead, and John Cassavetes’ Opening Night. He made his Metropolitan Opera debut last year with a critically-acclaimed production of Don Giovanni.

Based in Amsterdam, van Hove has served as the director of International Theater Amsterdam since 2001 and has been an artistic leader of the Dramatic Arts department of the University College Antwerp since 1984.

Other recognitions include two Obie Awards, the East Flanders Oeuvre Prize, the Theatre Festival Prize, the Archangel Award at the Edinburgh Festival, the Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in France, and the Prijs van de Kritiek in the Netherlands.
