Netflix Orders British Supernatural Teen Series
The as-yet-untitled eight-episode drama comes from the production house behind 'The Missing.'
Netflix is increasing its investment in British television, ordering a supernatural teen drama from the All3Media-owned New Pictures.
The as-yet-untitled eight-episode series was created by Hania Elkington (The North London Book of the Dead) and Simon Duric (The Crown, Black Mirror), and has been billed an emotional love story thriller about two teenage runaways.
It is being exec produced by New Pictures founders Charlie Pattinson, Elaine Pyke and Willow Grylls, alongside Farren Blackburn (Doctor Who), who will also direct. The U.K.-based banner, which was acquired by All3Media in January 2016, previously produced the Starz/BBC series The Missing and Indian Summers for Channel 4. It is currently in production on the BBC/Cinemax crime series Rellik starring Game of Thrones' Richard Dormer, and supernatural drama Requiem for BBC One.
The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the new show will shoot in the U.K. and Norway.
