The age of Netflix Original Series have been great, I think we can all admit. (Except for “Hemlock Grove.” I mean C’MON.) Monday, the company announced their next original series endeavor, the currently untitled project from the creators of “Damages.”
The upcoming series will have a 13 episode run and will be produced by Sony Pictures Television. It comes from the great minds of Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler (KZK). According to Netflix, the show will focus on a family of adult siblings whose secrets and scars come to light with the return of their black sheep brother.
“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 Netflix original content vp Cindy Holland. “Their work on Damages was truly ahead of its time and we’re proud to be bringing our viewers this upcoming series.”
Sony TV president of programming and production Jamie Erlicht, added,
“The guys worked so hard to come up with the right idea after the success of Damages. 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.”
Netflix has produced great original series like “House of Cards” and “Orange is the New Black” not to mention bringing my favorite show of all time, “Arrested Development.” (I am still disappointed with “Hemlock Grove though.) I cannot wait to see how their next original series turns out and from the description, I’m sure it will be a doozy.
The news series is set to begin production in early 2014.
