Amazon Greenlights New Series from Nicole Kidman, Lena Waithe, Greg Daniels https://t.co/LgW4pgcF8g— Variety (@Variety) July 28, 2018
Amazon Studios has greenlit new drama “The Expatriates” from Nicole Kidman’s Blossom Films, two seasons of horror event series “THEM” from Lena Waithe, and a new comedy from “The Office’s” Greg Daniels, entitled “Upload.”
▪“The Expatriates” is based on the best-selling novel by Janice Y.K Lee.
“The story weaves an addictive tapestry that follows a group of complex women and their lives as outsiders in Hong Kong. It’s a compelling exploration of the strength of these women as they persevere through struggles with marriage, career, parenting and unimaginable loss,”
▪“THEM,” from executive producer Waithe, will focus its first season of an anthology approach in 1953.
"THEM: Covenant will follow the still-to-be-cast characters of Alfred and Lucky Emory who decide to move their family from North Carolina to an all-white Los Angeles neighborhood. The family’s home on a tree lined, seemingly idyllic street becomes ground zero where malevolent forces both real and supernatural threaten to taunt, ravage and destroy them."
▪“Upload,” which comes from Daniels and his producing partner Howard Klein and stars Andy Allo and Robbie Amell, is a 10-episode half-hour sci-fi romantic satire. The show is set in the near future, where people who are near death can be “uploaded” into a virtual afterlife of their choice.
