Netflix Adds French Osmosis to their Roster
Netflix is continuing with its expansion into other kinds of content. Most of the Netflix-produced series are English based, with a few notable exceptions of course, but it won’t be that way for long. As we learned from ComingSoon.Net Netflix has announced it’s developing a new series, and it’s going to be in French.
Can You Engineer Love?
Netflix has just announced that it is developing Osmosis, a french sci-fi eight-episode series which will be available to its subscribers. The series comes from show runner Audrey Fouché (known for Les Revenants, Borgia) and will be produced by Aude Albano and Claude Chelli who also produced Versailles.
Osmosis is described as “sci-fi drama about Paris in the near future filled with romance and mystery about technology’s final frontier: love. technology has conquered the last frontier decoding true love. Digging deep into its users brain data, the new dating app “OSMOSIS” can find a perfect match with 100% accuracy, turning the concept of an absolute soulmate into a reality. But is there a price to pay when letting an algorithm decide who you will love? When in exchange for this undying, ageless love, technology can access the innermost recesses of your mind — and the best kept secrets of your heart.”
It sounds like an interesting and new take on sci-fi and the creative minds behind it, especially Audrey Fouché, are definitely excited.
“In this eight-episode series, the future I have imagined holds a mirror to present day mixing an eternal question – ‘what is love?’ – with ultra-technological answers, sometimes incredibly seducing, sometimes extremely dangerous. Netflix offers an ideal platform to explore these very contemporary stories in an innovative way, which I am looking forward to sharing soon.” explained Fouché.
The series will be entirely shot in France with production expected to begin in 2018.
