Netflix has released the first trailer for a new series that they've been secretly developing called The OA. It's an eight-episode series that was created by Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij (Sound of My Voice and The East), and it looks incredibly interesting. I'm definitely intrigued by this trailer, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the series has to offer.
The series is being produced by Brad Pitt and is described as "a powerful, mind-bending tale about identity, human connection, and the borders between life and death." The story follows Prairie Johnson (Marling), "a missing blind woman who finally returns to her family after seven years with her sight restored. Though Prairie is said to 'remember everything,' she refuses to talk about what happened to her during her time away from home, leaving viewers to contemplate what exactly befell her all those years ago."
The series also stars Emory Cohen (Brooklyn), Scott Wilson (The Walking Dead), Phyllis Smith (The Office), Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter), Alice Krige (Star Trek: First Contact), Patrick Gibson (The Tudors), Brendan Meyer (Mr. Young), and more.
The OA is set to premiere on Friday, December 16th. Netflix has been pumping out some great series, and this looks like it will hit their high standards for entertainment.
