Eli Roth Creating Original Series For Netflix
Netflix has had an extremely awkward year, having changed pricing, putting their distribution between two companies and then reneging on that idea. But one area in which Netflix has great potential is in their future original programs. This year Netflix has already picked several new series including House of Cards from David Fincher and Orange Is the New Black from Jenji Kohan, creator of Weeds, and they will have the exclusive rights to the new Arrested Development episodes. In keeping with the popular trend of horror TV shows, Netflix has also acquired a new program produced and directed by Eli Roth.
Roth’s last directorial effort was Hostel: Part II in 2007, and he has also directed Hostel and Cabin Fever.
Hemlock Grove will be based on the book of the same name from Brian McGreevy, which will be released on March 27. The series will have 13 episodes and is being written by McGreevy with his writing partner Lee Shipman.
Hemlock Grove tells the story of a town whose residents find the murdered body of a little girl and try to find the culprit, but aren’t sure whether they are looking for a person or a beast.
