Netflix Releases Teaser Trailer & September Premiere Date For ‘The I-Land’
Netflix would like to welcome you to ‘The I-Land‘ from this September, as they release a teaser trailer and a premiere date for their new psychological sci-fi drama… And looking at the trailer, it’s ‘Lost’ meets ‘Big Brother’, with some ‘Hunger Games’ (and, maybe, some ‘Black Mirror’) thrown in for good measure.
‘The I-Land‘ comes from ‘Van Helsing’ writer Neil LaBute and follows ten people who wake up on a treacherous island with no memory of who they are or how they got there. As they set off on a trek to try to get back home, they soon discover this world is not as it seems. Faced with the island’s extreme psychological and physical challenges, they must rise to their better selves – or die as their worst ones.
Kate Bosworth (‘The Long Road Home’, ‘Still Alice’) stars as KC and serves as a producer on the series. Natalie Martinez (‘Under the Dome’), Michelle Veintimilla (‘Gotham’), Alex Pettyfer (‘Magic Mike’), Sibylla Deen (‘The Last Ship’), Kyle Schmid (‘Being Human’), Ronald Peet (‘Defectives’), Kota Eberhardt (‘Dark Phoenix’), Anthony Lee Medina (‘Flesh and Bone’) and Gilles Geary (‘Spirit Warriors’) also star.
LaBute serves as showrunner, director and writer for the 7-episode series. Jonathan Scarfe (‘Van Helsing’) also joins on the directing side, with Lucy Teitler (‘Mr. Robot’) lending a hand with the writing. The series is produced by Nomadic Pictures Entertainment.
‘The I-Land‘ Season 1 premieres Thursday, 12th September 2019 on Netflix UK and worldwide.
