Netflix has released the first trailer for Eli Roth's new series Hemlock Grove. This is one of many new series that Netflix is going to be a part of. Other series include David Fincher’s political thriller series House of Cards, and the fourth season Arrested Development.
Roth directed the first episode of this mystery thriller which is based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name. The story centers on "the eccentric residents of a dilapidated former Pennsylvania steel town and the murder of 17-year-old Brooke Bluebell. Through the investigation, the town’s seamier side is exposed, revealing that nothing is what it seems." It seems to have a mix of Twin Peaks and Twilight Zone and some fantasy horror elements.
It looks like it could be a great series! It's described by Netflix's Ted Sarandos as being "unlike anything else in its genre. It’s sexy, gripping, emotional and twisted, and we’re certain viewers are going to be captivated by its intensity."
The series stars Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard, Landon Liboiron, Penelope Mitchell, Freya Tingley, and Dougray Scott. All of the 13 episodes will be available to watch on Netflix on April 19th. Watch the trailer and let us know if you'll be watching!
