Deadline.com reports that Netflix is in talks to pick up 13 episodes of a new horror series by Eli Roth.
Netflix is finalizing a deal with Gaumont International Television for a 13-episode series order to Hemlock Grove, an hourlong thriller/horror series executive produced and directed by Eli Roth. This marks the first foray into television for top horror feature writer-director-producer Roth, creator of the Hostel franchise. Hemlock Grove is based on Brian McGreevy’s upcoming gothic horror novel of the same name, which will be released by Farrar, Straus and Giroux on March 27. Set against the backdrop of our darkest myths, adolescent deceptions, ravenous relationships and rumors of a werewolf, the series re-imagines everything it means to be a monster as reflected in the struggle to be human.
Netflix is starting to act more and more like HBO.
