Netflix Orders New Series Exec Produced by The Duffer Brothers


Netflix has ordered the new supernatural mystery series The Boroughs, with The Duffer Brothers (Stranger Things) executive producing for Upside Down Pictures.

Created by showrunners Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews (The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance), the eight-episode drama takes place in a seemingly picturesque retirement community in New Mexico. A group of unlikely heroes bands together to stop an otherworldly threat from stealing the one thing they don’t have: time.

The Duffer Brothers said: “We’ve been fans of Jeff and Will’s writing for a long time, and when they pitched us their idea for The Boroughs, we immediately knew they had something very special on their hands. While the heroes in The Boroughs have a few more years on them than the kids from Stranger Things, they are a similarly lovable bunch of misfits, and we can’t wait for you to join them on an adventure that is at turns scary, funny and deeply touching.”

Addiss and Matthews added: “We’re thrilled to be back at Netflix. Working alongsideTthe Duffer Brothers (who are pretty good at making shows) and their team has been a dream come true. They bring the perfect balance of heart and horror to our story. We can’t wait for audiences around the world to unlock the dark mystery buried beneath the sunny facade of The Boroughs.”
