    NETFLIX ANNOUNCES FIRST SLATE OF SERIES AND FILMS BASED

    ON THE STORIES OF MARK MILLAR


    -- Films include Empress to be written by Lindsey Beer,

    Huck to be written by Ted Melfi and

    Sharkey The Bounty Hunter  to be written by Michael Bacall --


    -- Series include Jupiter’s Legacy from Steven S. DeKnight and

    A multilingual version of American Jesus --


    Hollywood, Calif. – Netflix, the world’s leading internet entertainment service, announced its first slate of films and series based on the stories of Mark Millar. Netflix acquired Millar’s company, Millarworld, last year and since then has been developing projects with Mark and Lucy Millar, including The Magic Order, which has been published as Netflix’s first comic book and was the biggest selling new comic-book franchise in nearly 20 years.  
    Said Millar, “My wife Lucy and I are eleven months into our jobs at Netflix and it’s everything we hoped for to the power of ten. To see a movie based on your work every couple of years is incredibly exciting, but to see them all happening at once like this and with talent this high-end is just off the scale. These are writers and directors I’ve privately been sending fan-mail to over the last eighteen months so to be working with them all is just enormously exciting. This really is the greatest creative environment I’ve ever worked in. I can’t wait to switch on my computer every morning.”

    Original series to be produced include:

    Jupiter’s Legacy
    A multi-generational American superhero epic, Jupiter’s Legacy follows the world’s first generation of superheroes who received their powers in the 1930s.  In present day they are the revered elder guard, but their superpowered children struggle to live up to the legendary feats of their parents. Steven S. DeKnight (Marvel’s Daredevil, Spartacus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), who recently signed an overall deal with Netflix, will serve as showrunner and executive producer, with Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Dan McDermott also serving as executive producers for the series. DeKnight will also direct the first episode.

    American Jesus
    Multilingual (Spanish/English) series American Jesus follows a twelve-year-old boy who suddenly discovers he's returned as Jesus Christ. He can turn water into wine, make the crippled walk, and, perhaps, even raise the dead! How will he deal with the destiny to lead the world in a conflict thousands of years in the making? Everardo Gout (Marvel’s Luke Cage, Sacred Lies, Mars, Banshee, Aqui En La Tierra) and Leopoldo Gout (Molly’s Game, Instinct) will serve as co-showrunners and executive producers on the series. Everardo Gout will also direct.

    Film projects include:

    Empress
    Queen Emporia is married to (literally) the worst dictator in the galaxy, King Morax. After escaping his palace with her children, Emporia and her family, must hide from Morax and his army at all costs -- even if it takes teleporting from planet to planet to avoid them. Writer Lindsey Beer (Kingkiller Chronicle and the upcoming Sierra Burgess is a Loser for Netflix and Wizards of Once for DreamWorks Animation) is adapting the comic book into a feature film, with Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum (The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, Maleficent) set to produce.

    Huck
    In a quiet seaside town, Huck uses his special gifts to do a good deed each day. His neighbors return the favors by keeping his abilities a secret. But when a newcomer alerts the media, a firestorm erupts, sending Huck on an adventure that will change everything. Ted Melfi (Hidden Figures, St. Vincent) is adapting the comic book into a feature film, with Neal H. Moritz and Toby Jaffe set to produce.

    Sharkey The Bounty Hunter
    Set in a brilliant new sci-fi universe, Sharkey is a blue-collar bounty-hunter tracking criminals across the galaxy in his converted, rocket-powered ice-cream truck. Aided and abetted by his ten-year-old partner, he’s out for the biggest bounty of his career. Sharkey the Bounty Hunter will be adapted and published as a Millarworld/Netflix comic next year and writer Michael Bacall (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, 21 Jump Street) is writing the screenplay for the feature film.

Witness the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. When DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Peña) moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he ever could have imagined.

    What I don't like about Netflix is you are basically subscribing BLIND. You literally have no idea what shows or movies will you get to watch because they don't allow existing users who cancelled or new subscribers to browse list of shows/movies.

    Ready to celebrate? ELITE is coming to Netflix on October 5

     

                                Jaime Lorente on Netflix’s new Spanish Original teen drama ELITE.


    Welcome to the world of ELITE! Coming of age dramas, interrelations, different class struggles, love and a murder to be solved! ELITE launches globally on Netflix October 5, 2018.

    The shows marks the reunion of La Casa de Papel’s (Money Heist) María Pedraza, Miguel Herrán, and Jaime Lorente, who star amongst fresh new faces: Itzan Escamilla (Cable Girls, The Ministry of Time), Miguel Bernardeau (Ola de Crímenes), Arón Piper (15 Years and One Day), Ester Expósito (Estoy Vivo), Mina El Hammani (El Príncipe), Álvaro Rico (Velvet Collection), and Omar Ayuso (debuts with ELITE). Adding to the cast is Danna Paola (Dare to Dream), currently amongst Mexico’s most popular actresses and singers.

    ELITE is Netflix’s second Spanish Original series and is directed by Ramón Salazar (Sunday’s Illness, Three Steps Above Heaven) and Dani de la Orden (El Mejor Verano de mi vida, Party Town), written by Carlos Montero (The Time in Between and creator of Physical or Chemical) and Darío Madrona (Génesis, La chica de ayer and co-creator of the very successful The Protected).

    Las Encinas is the best and most exclusive school in Spain, where the elite send their children to study. It's also where three working class kids have just been admitted after their academy was collapsed and the local council divvied up the students between other schools in the area. They thought that they'd lucked out...but maybe they weren't so lucky after all.

    The clash between those who have everything and those who have nothing to lose creates a perfect storm that ultimately ends in a murder. Who is behind the crime? Is it one of these recent arrivals from a different world? Or is there something deeper hiding beneath the surface?

    The show is executive produced by Zeta Audiovisual (Ahora o Nunca, Three Steps Above Heaven, I Want You) with the first season consisting of 8 episodes and entirely shot in 4K.

    KILIG CONTINUES ON NETFLIX IN ‘SIERRA BURGESS IS A LOSER’
    WITH NOAH CENTINEO AND SHANNON PURSER
     
    Streaming Friday, September 7



    Shannon Purser is all smiles as Sierra Burgess in Sierra Burgess Is A Loser, a high school-set rom-com featuring Noah Centineo.


    In Sierra Burgess Is A Loser, Shannon Purser (of Stranger Things fame) plays the titular character, a straight-A student who never cared about not fitting the stereotypical definition of what it is to be attractive in high school -- until a case of mistaken identity leads to an unexpected romance, making her lose her self-confidence and, quite literally, her own identity. This upcoming Netflix rom-com, premiering on Friday, September 7, will make viewers giddy with kilig, especially with Noah Centineo -- fresh off making fans fall head over heels in love with Peter Kavinsky in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before -- playing Jamey, the hot but smart and sensitive quarterback Purser’s Sierra flirts with and falls for via texting.



    This is not a drill: The internet’s boyfriend Noah Centineo in a locker room scene in Sierra Burgess Is A Loser.


    “I love Sierra because she isn’t a trope,” says Purser of the first lead character she’s ever played. “She’s not the traditional love-obsessed nerd or the angry, angsty outcast. She’s not desperate for male attention, she just falls head over heels in love for the first time and has to figure out how to love herself in the process.  Lucky for Sierra Burgess, the boy she falls head over heels in love with for the first time is “more than just a hot jock,” as Sierra says in the trailer. Watch the trailer to Sierra Burgess Is A Loser here:



     

    A modern retelling of the Cyrano De Bergerac story, Sierra Burgess Is A Loser is the latest title in Netflix’s slate of romantic comedies that have been winning hearts all over the world - The Kissing BoothSet It UpAlex Strangelove, and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Catch a glimpse of these love stories (and fall in love!) by watching this special “Season of Love on Netflix” video, set to the tune of the Apo Hiking Society’s classic “Panalangin.”  

    “People seem to be looking for more optimistic stories that inspire given the state of the world, and maybe that has something to do with a resurgence of rom-coms. It’s definitely an escape to a warm place,” says Sierra Burgess Is A Loser director Ian Samuels. “Sierra Burgess is important in the trend because it does have a core heart of value with its themes of self-confidence, universal human experience and empathy. I wanted the heart and messaging of the movie to feel modern and turn the genre in unexpected directions. Music is an integral part of the movie as well that will set this apart. I knew that I wanted to score with songs, like a teen mix tape. But, like the movie, I didn’t want that mix tape to feel top 40. I wanted something fresh and emotional and timeless YA neon-feeling.” Get ready for those NSS-inducing feels!

     

    Sierra Burgess Is A Loser premieres only on Netflix on Friday, September 7.
