This morning, Netflix announced a new original survivalist thriller series called “Between” that will premiere on City television stations in Canada, the soon-to-be-released Canadian subscription video streaming service shomi, and on Netflix wherever available. For Canadian residents, however, the show will launch on Netflix Canada one year after it premieres on City and shomi.
“Between” starts principal photography today for six one-hour episodes that will comprise the show’s first season. The new drama stars Jennette McCurdy (iCarly) and was created by Michael McGowan (Still Mine, One Week, Saint Ralph).
“Between is the story of a town under siege from a mysterious disease that has wiped out everybody except those 21 years old and under. The series explores the power vacuum that results when a government has quarantined a 10-mile diameter area and left the inhabitants to fend for themselves.”
“With the commission of Between, we are reinforcing our commitment to bring the best programming to our subscribers,” said Marni Shulman, Head of Content & Programming, shomi. “Great opportunities to build original content like this, and working with the breadth of talent, including the amazing Michael McGowan, is a perfect fit for the shomi brand.”
