Netflix Orders Supernatural Drama 'Chambers'
Netflix is getting into business with digital-centric media company Super Deluxe.
The streamer has given a 10-episode order to supernatural drama Chambers, which was developed by the Turner Broadcasting-owned brand.
Chambers will tell the story of a heart attack survivor who becomes focused on the mystery of the heart that saved her life. The more she learns about her donor's sudden death, the more she starts to take on the characteristics of the deceased.
The series was created by Leah Rachel, who will also executive produce alongside Stephen Gaghan for Super Deluxe. Akela Cooper (Grimm, The 100) will serve as showrunner and executive producer.
Turner relaunched the Super Deluxe brand in 2015. The company, which is run by Wolfgang Hammer, operates independently out of a downtown Los Angeles office and has focused on shortform and live video for its own website as well as platforms including YouTube and Facebook.
Super Deluxe has helped Branden Miller turns his Joanne the Scammer Instagram character into a series on YouTube and worked with Parenthood star Sarah Ramos on web series City Girl. Meanwhile, it has begun to push into more traditional TV formats with projects such as This Close, about a pair of deaf best friends who navigate life together, for streaming service Sundance Now. It also recently teamed with TBS to create a late-night block of programming.
Rachel is repped by WME, Anonymous Content and Greg Slewett of Bloom Hergott; Gaghan is repped by CAA and Hansen Jacobson; and Cooper is repped by ICM Partners, Rise Management and attorney Gregg Gellman.
