Major new drama begins filming in Spain for Netflix
Kaos, a major new UK-produced drama for Netflix, begins a lengthy Spanish shoot this week with Aurora Perrineau (pictured) leading the cast.
The 10-part series comes from The End of the F***ing World writer/creator Charlie Covell and is a reimagining of Greek and Roman mythology, set against thematic backdrops of gender politics and power.
The drama, which is produced by Sister Pictures, has taken a few years to go from commission to production. Georgi Banks-Davies directs; the exec producers are Covell, Chris Fry, Banks-Davies, Jane Featherstone, Tanya Seghatchian, John Woodward and Nina Lederman.
Sister is as busy as ever: currently in active development are Eric, a Netflix thriller from Abi Morgan set in 1980s New York, and Passenger, a darkly comic horror for ITVX written by Andew Buchan set to film next year.
