Netflix is a streaming platform that has recently dived into original programming. With their shows being so well received, it is no surprise that Netflix has ordered a 13-episode psychological thriller for its next series. They have ordered the new show from Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler, the creators of Damages. The untitled new show will focus on a family of adult siblings whose past issues and secrets arise with the return of their black sheep brother. In a joint statement by the trio of co-creators, they said “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.” The television thriller is set to start production in early 2014.
Netflix began its expansion into original programming earlier this year with Emmy-winning House of Cards, which received a two season order right from the start. This show was followed by Hemlock Grove and Orange is the New Black, which each received a season renewal after shortly after the premiere.
The three co-creators found success in their 2007 Damages, which aired on FX for three seasons before finishing off its final two on DirecTV. It received 20 Emmy nominations in its five season run.
