Netflix has confirmed filming is now underway on Into the Night, its first Belgian original series.
Due to launch on the service next year, the show begins with the sun inexplicably starting to kill everything in its path and centres around the ‘lucky’ passengers and crew of an overnight flight out of Brussels, as they attempt to fly west — into the safety of the dark night.
The plane’s manifest is multinational and multilingual, with passengers, rich and poor, young and old, civilian and military. The seemingly ordinary travelers share but one thing: A desire to survive the sun — and each other — by any means necessary.
The series will feature an international cast from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Russia, and Turkey, including Pauline Etienne, Laurent Capelluto, Nabil Mallat, Stéfano Cassetti, Jan Bijvoet, Astrid Whettnall, Vincent Londez, Regina Bikkinina, Alba Gaïa Bellugi, Babetida Sadjo, Mehmet Kurtulus, and Ksawery Szlenkier.
