Netflix Sets ‘Between’ Thriller Premiere Date Starring Jennette McCurdy

Survivalist thriller series “Between,” starring Jennette McCurdy (Nickelodeon’s “iCarly” and “Sam & Cat”), will premiere on Netflix in regions outside of Canada on May 21.

But unlike Netflix’s usual binge-able drop of a TV series, with “Between” the company will space out the six one-hour episodes on a weekly basis. That’s because of the three-way deal under which the streaming service bought rights to it alongside its airing on Rogers Broadcasting’s City TV stations in Canada and availability on Canadian subscription VOD service Shomi.

In “Between,” a town is under siege from a mysterious disease that has killed everybody — except for those 21 years old and younger. The series is created by writer-director Michael McGowan (“Still Mine,” “One Week”).

McCurdy made the announcement on Twitter:

Netflix, under the pact for the series, will be able to offer “Between” to Netflix Canada subscribers one year after the initial TV premiere.

“Between” is one of several originals comprising Netflix’s summer 2015 lineup, led by “Orange Is the New Black” season three on June 12 and the reboot of “Wet Hot American Summer” July 17.

The series is produced by Don Carmody Television, Mulmur Feed Co. in association with Elevation Pictures Corp. McGowan is executive producer along with Don Carmody (“Resident Evil,” “Chicago”), David Cormican (“The Tall Man,” “Faces in the Crowd”) and Naveen Prasad, EVP and g.m. of Elevation Pictures. Elevation oversees worldwide distribution.

Jon Cassar (“24,” “The Kennedys”) will direct the first two episodes. From Rogers Media, Nataline Rodrigues is director of original programming, Hayden Mindell is VP of television programming and content, and Navaid Mansuri is interim VP of broadcast.
