Netflix har bestilt en ny psykologisk thriller-serie fra skaberne af “Damages” Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman og Glenn Kessler (“KZK”). Serien centrerer om en familie bestående af voksne søskende, hvis dybe hemmeligheder og ar bliver afsløret, da deres bror, flokkens sorte får, vender hjem. Alle første sæsons 13 episoder fra Sony Picture Television får eksklusiv premiere på Netflix i alle lande, hvor tjenesten er tilgængelig.
Serien starter produktionen i begyndelse af 2014, så vi må altså vente lidt på at se den. De enkelte afsnit, 13 i alt, får en varighed af 1 time og serien produceres af Sony Pictures Television for Netflix.
Herunder lidt reaktioner på aftalen
“We were spellbound after hearing Todd, Glenn and Daniel’s pitch, and knew Netflix was the perfect home for this suspenseful family drama that is going to have viewers on the edge of their seats,” said Cindy Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix. “Their work on ‘Damages’ was truly ahead of its time and we’re proud to be bringing our viewers this upcoming series.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to be creating an original series for Netflix — a company committed to cutting-edge storytelling in a vibrant, new space. We’re equally excited about our relationship with Sony Pictures TV, which continues to provide us with unwavering creative support. We’ve always wanted to put our spin on a family saga and examine universal themes of family in a way that has never been seen before on television. The series is a tightly wound thriller that explores the complex bonds between parents and children, brothers and sisters, and the rivalries, jealousies, and betrayals at the core of every family,” said Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler.
“The guys worked so hard to come up with the right idea after the success of Damages,” said Jamie Erlicht, president of programming and production for Sony Pictures Television. “It took almost a year to fully develop the pitch and their patience paid off with the incredible reaction in the community, especially at Netflix, the perfect home for this show.”
