Netflix Buys Family Drama From Damages Team


Netflix announced today that its next original series will be a "psychological thriller" from the creators of Damages. The still-untitled show centers on a family of adult siblings whose dark history bubbles back to the surface when their black sheep brother returns. Oooh, mysterious. Glenn Kessler, Todd A. Kessler, and Daniel Zelman will executive produce the series, which will go into production early next year. Damages's first season is still one of the more impressive and ambitious exercises in narratives that bounce around in time, which is one kind storytelling that definitely lends itself to a good old-fashioned binge-watch.
