Netflix Greenlights New Series, SHADOW AND BONE
Netflix has greenlit a new eight-episode series, Shadow and Bone, according to Deadline.
The series is based on Leigh Bardugo's bestselling Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows Grishaverse fantasy novels. The series hails from Bird Box writer Eric Heisserer, and Shawn Levy, executive producer of Stranger Things. The project falls under the Netflix overall deal for Levy's 21 Laps. Bardugo will also executive produce the show, which is being produced by Netflix. Heisserer, who will showrun, has also written and created the series.
Shadow and Bone brings together the stories and characters of both Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows, two overlapping series that take place in Bardugo's Grishaverse. In a world cleaved in two by a massive barrier of perpetual darkness, where unnatural creatures feast on human flesh, a young soldier uncovers a power that might finally unite her country. But as she struggles to hone her power, dangerous forces plot against her. Thugs, thieves, assassins and saints are at war now, and it will take more than magic to survive.
Pouya Shahbazian also serves as an executive producer alongside Bardugo as well as Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen and Josh BARRY for 21 Laps.
