9 Netflix Originals That We Can Look Forward to in 2014
7 Of 9 New Show Coming From The Creators of Damages
This upcoming thirteen episode drama has yet to be titled — but it does have its lead man all lined up. Kyle Chandler will be taking the lead as the stable middle brotherin this family drama — according to Entertainment Weekly. He will play the brother who takes care of the rest of his siblings, Michael Bluth-style, when his black sheep older brother returns.
The as-yet unnamed series will be directed by the creators of Damages, Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessle. “We’ve always wanted to put our spin on a family saga and examine universal themes of family in a way that has never been seen before on television. 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,” said the writers of the show.
8 Of 9 Bojack Horseman
BoJack Horseman, an adult animated show that shines a light on the equestrian star of Horsin’ Around, BoJack. The horse, voiced by Arrested Development’s Will Arnett, is basically a mess of alcoholism and poor relationship choices, according to a PR Newswire press release.
“Even though he’s been out to pasture, I’ve always admired BoJack for his inimitable style and can-do attitude. I couldn’t be more thrilled that he’s getting off his legendary haunches to join the internet TV revolution here on Netflix,” said Ted Sarandos, the Chief Content Officer at Netflix in a press release.
“As a studio executive involved in successful sitcoms like Happy Days, Barney Miller, and Cheers, I always regretted BoJack wasn’t on my team,” said Michael Eisner, former chief executive of theWalt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS), in the release. “But now, with Tornante in the saddle, BoJack is exactly where he belongs, in full creative control, and on Netflix.”
