The show will start streaming on Netflix from August 13, 2021.
Netflix has dropped the first trailer for Brand New Cherry Flavor and it's safe to say things are about to get disturbing. Starring Roza Salazar, the series is a dark and disturbing revenge thriller.
The eight-episode limited series will follow Lisa Nova, an aspiring filmmaker chasing her dream in Hollywood sometime in the ’90s. As she sets out on a path of revenge following a betrayal, she is given access to dark magic by a witch/tattoo artist played by Catherine Keener.
The trailer sets the dark tone for the series and brings together surreal horror elements and mixes it with a few comic overtones, but manages to remain dark, disturbing, and nightmarish to say the least.
Netflix has announced that this adaptation of Todd Grimson’s horror of the same name will start streaming on the platform from August 13. The trailer suggests the Friday the 13th release is no coincidence.
With eight episodes, each around one hour, the limited series will see Nick Antosca and Lenore Zion as the creators of the show. Nick Antosca who is directing an episode is known for writing shows like The Act, Antlers and The Forest.
Brand New Cherry Flavor also stars Eric Lange, Manny Jacinto and Jeff Ward along with Lesland Orser, Patrick Fischler and Hannah Levien.
Rosa Salazar who was previously in movies like The Divergent Series: Insurgent, Maze Runner movies and Netflix's Birdbox, is best known for her role as Alita in Alita: Battle Angel, which was an adaptation of the popular manga Gunnm. Directed by Robert Rodrigue, it was co-written by James Cameron.
