NETFLIX REVEALS NEW SHOWS FROM SWEDEN, FRANCE, GERMANY, SPAIN, UK

London, UK, November 28, 2018: Netflix, the world's leading internet entertainment service, continues its investment in European content with the announcement of new original series from Sweden, France, Germany, Spain and the UK.

Erik Barmack, Vice President of International Originals, discussed several new projects in his keynote speech at the C21 conference in London. These include:

Young Wallander, a new original series based on Henning Mankell's best-selling Kurt Wallander novels, set in contemporary Sweden and produced by Yellow Bird UK. In a bold and original new story, Young Wallander sees Henning Mankell's iconic detective Kurt Wallander investigate his gripping first case. The English-language drama series is told over six serialized episodes and features both British and Swedish cast. Production starts during 2019.

A new 8-episode original series set in France in 1787. While investigating a series of mysterious murders, Joseph Guillotin - the future inventor of the world famous 'Guillotine' - uncovers an unknown virus: the Blue Blood. The disease, quickly spreading amongst the French aristocracy, is driving them to murder ordinary people and will soon lead to a rebellion... What if the French Revolution didn't happen the way we were told?

Criminal, a police procedural with a very unique premise: it takes place exclusively within the confines of a police suite. The cat-and-mouse drama will focus on the intense mental conflict between the police officer and the suspect in question and comprise of 12 unique stories set in four different countries: France, Germany, Spain and the UK. The episodes will be in local language, written and directed by talent from their respective countries.

1899, a new original series from Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, the creators of the first German Netflix original series DARK. 1899 revolves around a migrant steamship heading west to leave the old continent from London to New York, and is a truly European show with a mixed cast from different countries. The passengers are united by their hopes and dreams for the new century and their future abroad but when they discover another migrant ship adrift on open sea, their journey takes an unexpected turn.

Commenting, Erik Barmack said: "Great stories unite and delight us, no matter where in the world they come from or what language they are in. There will come a time when half of the top ten shows globally won't be in the English language, and shows with a multinational cast - and often in multiple languages - will become the norm, as long as technology can get the right story in front of the right person in a language they can understand. We are delighted to continue our investment in great European creators and talent, bringing fresh perspectives and untold stories to Netflix members across the world."

These shows are additional to recently announced projects from Norway and Spain, five new German projects and seven new French titles, as well as season 2 of Spanish show Elite, a new co-production in the UK and a collaboration with The Roald Dahl Story Company.

New European shows launching in the coming weeks and available to Netflix members in 190 countries around the world include:

From Poland, 1983 (30 Nov)

From Italy, Baby (30 Nov)

From France, Plan Coeur (7 Dec)

From Germany, Dogs of Berlin (7 Dec)

From Turkey, Protector (14 Dec)
