Netflix announced today that the streaming service has ordered 10 episodes of The One, a new series based on the provocative science fiction novel by John Marrs. Howard Overman (Misfits) is the show’s creator, writer, and executive producer.
The One is set five minutes in the future, in a world where a DNA test can find your perfect partner – the one person you’re genetically predisposed to fall passionately in love with. No matter how good your relationship, which one of us can honestly say we haven’t thought about whether there is someone better out there? What if a hair sample is all it takes to find them? The idea is simple, but the implications are explosive. We will never think of love and relationships in the same way again.
The series comes from Urban Myth Films in association with StudioCanal. The executive producers are Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy for Urban Myth Films.
A StudioCanal company, Urban Myth Films was set up by international Emmy award-winning producers Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy and BAFTA award-winning writer Howard Overman with the intention of creating television drama and film for the international market.
