The Vermist TV series is a huge success, playing in Belgium, France and elsewhere. A Russian version is also in preparation.
Not many people know that the series is based on a movie that was directed by Jan Verheyen in 2007. “Waiting” is a song featured towards the end of the film. It was composed by Steve Willaert, who has worked on many European films and TV Shows over the past few years. The lyrics are by Michael Leahy, who worked with 2 Unlimited, CB Milton and Perry Rose. The singer is Chantal Kashala, who works in different groups in Belgium.
The composers worked together on other material for the series, although they weren’t developed into full songs.
