“Partner Track” premiered in late August of this year, while “The Imperfects” came in early September. Both made appearances on the Netflix Top 10 and stayed there for three weeks, with the former peaking in the No. 4 position and the latter peaking at No. 3.
Based on Helen Wan’s 2013 novel of the same name, “Partner Track” was a legal drama starring Arden Cho as Ingrid Yun, a young lawyer caught between her moral compass and her passions as she climbs the partner track at an elite New York law firm. Alexandra Turshen, Bradley Gibson, Dominic Sherwood, Rob Heaps, Nolan Gerard Funk, Matthew Rauch and Roby Attal also star.
Variety’s review praised the show’s ensemble but criticized the show overall: “Turshen, Gibson and Funk are especially good as their characters stumble and get more screentime away from Ingrid — which is, perhaps, indicative of how much time Ingrid spends being one of the least compelling parts of her own show.”
Georgia Lee served as showrunner, and executive produced alongside Kristen Campo and writer Kim Shumway. Directors included Julie Anne Robinson, Tanya Wexler, Adam Brooks, Lily Mariye, Kevin Berlandi. Wan consulted.
“The Imperfects” followed Abbi Singh (Rhianna Jagpal), Juan Ruiz (Iñaki Godoy), and Tilda Weber (Morgan Taylor Campbell), who become monsters after rogue scientist Dr. Alex Sarkov (Rhys Nicholson) experiments with their DNA. They join forces with Dr. Sydney Burke (Italia Ricci) to hunt Sarkov down. Kyra Zagorsky, Jedidiah Goodacre and Celina Martin also star.
Shelley Eriksen and Dennis Heaton created the series and executive produced alongside Chad Oakes and Michael Frislev.
