9 Netflix Originals That We Can Look Forward to in 2014
5 Of 9 Narcos
Talk about Narcos is merely speculative, but a drama based on the life of notorious Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar seems to coming to Netflix in 2014. Deadline reveals:
The series will chronicle the life and death of Escobar, the ruthless boss of the Medellin Cartel and a known terrorist who was also a congressman, a family man and revered by the poor as a new Robin Hood. Padilha, on whose idea the project is based, is slated to oversee and direct the 13-episode first season, which is eying a 2014 debut on Netflix.
6 Of 9 Hemlock Grove
Hemlock Grove is one of the those shows that manages to include a bit of everything — vampires, werewolves, murder, teen pregnancy, and quite a few creative science fiction creatuers we haven’t got a name for. That said — it’s not The Vampire Diaries, and it edges more towards sinister and gruesome than anything close to Twilight. It looks at the unusual and dark happenings in Hemlock, slowly but surely revealing pieces of the town’s puzzle as Hemlock’s wealthy son Roman Godfrey and the visiting Romani, Peter Rumancek, team up in a strange and sometimes creepy sort of friendship.
Season two of the series is slated to arrive in 2014 with ten episodes, and will bring with it a executive producer, according to a Netflix press release. Charles H. Eglee of The Walking Dead,Dexter, and The Shield will be joioning the production team for the second season, but with any luck some old faces will be returning as well.
“The worldwide fan response to Hemlock Grove was phenomenal,” said Executive Producer Eli Roth in the release, referencing the big twist seen at the end of season one and noting that, “Season One was just a warm up for what we have in store for season two. Get read to be scared in ways you never expected.”
