The Culture: The Next Netflix Original Series
The digital network that brought you hits like Orange is the New Black and House of Cards isn’t sitting idly by and taking a breather. The network has formally announced that its gearing up to introduce its next new hour-long drama, and this time it’s teaming up with a few industry heavyweights to hit all the right notes.
The A.V. Club is reporting that Netflix has won the battle to deliver a show about a family and their “black sheep” relation who turns things on their ear. While the series has yet to get even a name, its being headed by Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler. That is the same roster of producers & writers who teamed up with actresses Glenn Close and Rose Byrne in Damages.
Somehow, the team plans on turning the hour-long family drama into a “tightly wound thriller that explores the complex bonds between parents and children, brothers and sisters.” Yeah, we’re still trying to wrap our heads around that one too.
There’s no date for the show’s official premiere yet, but Netflix has already ordered a full 13-episode season of the show from Sony. It’s the first time the up-and-coming streaming service/network has teamed up with a large traditional player in television to do produce a Netflix Original.
This is all a long way of saying that Netflix won’t stop until its conquered your television set — not that we’re opposed. As long as they want to keep bringing us high-quality programming at a ridiculously affordable price we’re all for it.
