NETFLIX ANNOUNCES NEW EUROPEAN ORIGINAL SERIES

-- Two German and one Norwegian series bring gritty entertainment with a twist --

Berlin, Germany - February 13, 2019 -- Netflix, the world's leading internet entertainment service, has announced the production of three new Netflix original series. During today's roundtable discussion at the Berlinale Drama Series Days, Kelly Luegenbiehl, Vice President International Originals Europe, Turkey and Africa at Netflix, will be introducing two series from Germany and one from Norway.

With Unorthodox, showrunner Anna Winger (Deutschland 83, Deutschland 86) tells the story of a young woman who escapes an arranged marriage in New York and embarks on an urgent journey of self-discovery. In Biohackers, written and directed by Christian Ditter (How to be single, Turkish for Beginners) a medical student discovers the use of highly advanced biohacking technology in her university town and has to decide how far she is willing to go to find out the truth. Bloodride is a staggering Norwegian horror anthology series in six parts from acclaimed scriptwriter Kjetil Indregard, the director of the Norwegian series Maniac.

"These three exciting projects all stand for Netflix' commitment to the European market and deliver original and locally grounded stories that can touch audiences worldwide. We are proud to bring the bold visions of these amazing storytellers to both local and global audiences," says Kelly Luegenbiehl, Vice President International Originals Europe, Turkey and Africa at Netflix.

Anna Winger about Unorthodox "I am thrilled to be working with Netflix on Unorthodox, inspired by Deborah Feldman's journey of self-discovery. At a time when women's rights are being challenged the world over, Feldman's story resonates far and wide. It is a privilege for us, at Studio Airlift, to collaborate with an incredible team of Berlin-based artists and bring this story to screens everywhere."

Christian Ditter about Biohackers "I've always loved the magic of stories that pit ordinary people against truly extraordinary circumstance. I'm excited to partner with Netflix to combine exciting visual storytelling with truthful, multi-layered characters rising to the challenges of the spectacle unfolding around them."

Håkon Briseid, CEO Monster Scripted, about Bloodride "Monster strongly believes in the strength of local perspective through home-grown stories from passionate talents. Bloodride is just such a project, and we are thrilled for the opportunity to produce this unique Norwegian language series for audiences around the world as a true Netflix Original."
