Netflix has had such success with original series that they’ve ordered up a new psychological thriller from the team behind Damages. The untitled thriller from executive producers Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler will get a 13 episode season one run on Netflix.
According to the announcement, the series will be shot early next year and will explore “the wounds and emotional demons that lie at the core of a contemporary American family.”
“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,” stated Cindy Holland, vp 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,” added 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.”
