Netflix Originals December 2016 series are promising . It seems there will be enough to see for everyone. One of the newest additions is The OA which is all set to premiere on Friday December 16. What should be expected from this new thriller?
Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij are now bringing their talent to Netflix. The duo co-created and wrote the new original series. Marling also plays one of the lead characters. Marling and Batmanglij have already worked before for Sound of My Voice and The East.
The OA Plot
Marling portrays Prairie Johnson. The character is a woman who returns to her parents after seven years of being away from home. She comes back with a significant change–her sight has been restored. It?s the first time that she will see her parents.
The indie actress shared in an interview that she started writing in order to act. She said?I think I?ll never stop writing now because I?m wondering why there aren?t more representatives of women that are like the women we know.?
The OA Cast and Team
The OA cast also include Emory Cohen, Scott Wilson, Phyllis Smith and Jason. Batmanglij directed all eight episodes of the new Netflix original. Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner from Brad Pitt?s Plan B and Michael Sugar are executive producers of the series with Marling and Batmanglij.
Cindy Holland said they are thrilled to be the home of the first television series that Marling and Batmanglij created together. The vice president of Original Content at Netflix further stated “Whether in front of or behind the camera, or both, their creative voice is always uniquely captivating.”
Marling is an actor, writer and producer all wrapped into one. Batmanglij is a writer and director. He made a splash at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival with his feature debut Sound of My Voice.
