Netflix green lights supernatural drama 'Montauk'

More on The X Files

Continuing its expansion of new TV shows, Netflix has ordered a new 8-episode supernatural drama, to broadcast in 2016. Montauk is set in Long Island in the 1980s and centers on the disappearance of a young boy, who seemingly vanishes into thin air.

Taking at least some inspiration from other supernatural TV shows like The X Files, the search for the boy reveals top-secret government experimentation, terrifying supernatural forces and a very strange little girl.

Montauk is being written and directed by filmmakers Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer, currently working on the M. Night Shyamalan produced Wayward Pines and will be executive produced by Shawn Levy.

On green-lighting the show, Netflix’s VP of Original Content Cindy Holland, made the following statement...

Matt and Ross are emerging filmmakers with an unmistakable passion for genre and suspense. Their unique voice infuses this coming-of-age drama with supernatural thrills that will captivate our global audience..”
