Netflix Orders ‘Montauk’ Supernatural Drama Series from ‘Wayward Pines’ Duffer Twins

Netflix is delving into the weird world of Long Island, N.Y., with original series “Montauk,” a supernatural drama written and directed by twin brothers Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer (“Wayward Pines,” “Hidden”), set to debut next year.

The series’ eight hourlong episodes will premiere exclusively across all Netflix territories in 2016, the company said.

In “Montauk,” set in 1980 in the Long Island town, a young boy mysteriously vanishes into thin air. Family, friends and local cops try to uncover the truth about his disappearance — which turns out to involve top-secret government experiments, supernatural forces and one “very strange little girl.”

“Matt and Ross are emerging filmmakers with an unmistakable passion for genre and suspense,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix’s VP of original content. “Their unique voice infuses this coming-of-age drama with supernatural thrills that will captivate our global audience.”

The Duffer brothers — who recently directed their first feature film, “Hidden,” for Warner Bros. starring Alexander Skarsgard — serve as executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen via their 21 Laps entertainment banner (“The Spectacular Now,” “Night at the Museum,” “Real Steel,” “Date Night”).

The twins’ “Wayward Pines” miniseries is set to debut on Fox May 14. The mystery thriller, created by Chad Hodge based on Blake Crouch’s novel “Pines,” stars Matt Dillon, Terrence Howard and Juliette Lewis.
