In its pursuit of new programming, Netflix has had few misfires. That trend of producing intriguing original series appears to be continuing with the announcement that the streaming service has ordered a new drama from the creators of 'Damages.'
Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler, the creative trio behind the FX legal drama which starred Glenn Close ('Fatal Attraction') and Rose Byrne ('X-Men: First Class'), are teaming once again for a new psychological thriller.
The as-yet-unnamed 13 part series will focus on a family of adult siblings whose collective skeletons in the closet are unveiled when their black sheep brother returns home. "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 Kesslers and Zelman say in a statement.
"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," added Cindy Holland, vice president 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."
Indeed, if their work on 'Damages' is any indication, the creative trio will be right at home setting up a new series on Netflix, which has already amassed an impressive collection of addictive original programming.
